Winter 2015

Day 6

Our first activity in Seville was the Feel the City Tour to learn about the history and culture of the city. The tour was great and informative, and left us at the Plaza de Espana. We went up the grand stairs to the balcony to get a full 180-degree view.

After, we strolled to Maria Luisa Park, where we enjoyed our lunch and relaxed under the shade. We then went to Barrio Santa Cruz – it was a melting pot of different cultures from the neighborhoods. Then, we went to the Museo del Baile Flamenco show. We watched a flamenco show, which is a traditional singing and dancing performance. It was beautiful and a great way to learn about the culture.

Day 7

We visited the Alcazar to explore the royal apartments in the royal palace, learning about luxurious living back in their times. Then we went to the Seville Cathedral and Giralda Tower. A good tip is to buy your tickets at the Church of Salvador to skip the lines at the cathedral, which will save a lot of time. At the Giralda Tower, there are no stairs, only ramps for the horses, making it a lot easier to climb up.

Day 8

Today we took it slow and strolled around the Casa de Pilatos. There’s a river running down the middle of the town, where we sat along to let the time pass by. There were also many lovely plazas and narrow streets with little shops, with small vendors and street artists. It felt like it was out of a movie set.
