Seville – Spain’s Surprising Southern City

Howdy all! Well this adventure is coming slowly to its conclusion. Tomorrow morning I have yet another early morning flight. The final country of this tour is Portugal and I’ll be flying from Seville to Lisbon tomorrow.

But for now it’s time to reminisce about the last couple of days because I have to say Seville is a great place to visit. It’s not a big place but it is packed with things to see.

Well yesterday I visited a monastery which contained an the exhibit of contemporary art. I will be, at some point, doing a post about modern art in the future. It’s food for thought for sure.

From there we visited the beautiful Maria Luisa Gardens and the attached Plaza Espana. This edifice was built in 1929 seemingly for people to visit, hang out at and take selfies. It’s massive and different- And there was also some Flamenco going on at the time which was pretty cool.

In fact I also visited the Flamenco Museum in Seville and caught a little bit of another performance there.

On to today where I headed out to Casa Pilato – a mansion over 500 years old. It was filled with Roman replicas and gardens and seriously high ceilings which seem to have been all the rage in Spain for many a century.

The Castillo de San Jorge was the main centre here in Seville from the late 16th century to the present start of the 19th for the Spanish Inquisition. Today it’s just ruins but interesting nonetheless.

Finally the Castle Alcazar was our final site visited. It was absolutely huge and beautiful. The top site of Seville without a doubt.

So. Seville has been great but now it’s time to pack. Thanks as always for reading and May the Journey Never End!

  1. I sounds like you had a lovely time in Seville. There is just so much to do and see there, it is difficult to see it all on a first visit. I was there for 3 days and definitely feel it is a place I will need to return in the future. Thank you for taking me back there.

  2. Take me back to Spain! Love Spain. Actually thinking of going back next year with the kids. Even though I’ve been there several times and the kids there once, it is one place I will go back to time and time again even though there is no direct flight from Tokyo!!
