SEVILLE

I arrived in Seville after lunch so I spent the afternoon wandering the streets of the Jewish Quarter and headed to the Espacio Metropol Parasol. It’s the worlds largest wooden structure (and a cool one at that) with a rooftop view of the city that is just magical. 

That afternoon I also saw the old bullfighting ring, the tobacco factory that is now a university (amazing old building) and the Torre del Oro – an historic watchtower that overlooks the river. 
There was an evening market on across the river so I made like a Spaniard and ate tapas on the grass at 9pm in the 36 degree heat. No lie. 

The next day I did the Alcázar (which I’ve made a separate post for due to the sheer volume of photos I took), the Cathedral – which included Christopher Columbus’ tomb – and La Giralda (bell tower).
I spent the afternoon in the Parque de la Maria Luisia, trying to hide from the heat. The park included The Plaza de España,a stunning tiled pavilion surrounded by a moat, built in 1928.
