Exploring Seville

We left Gibraltar for Seville by taxis and trains, and arrived safe and sound in Seville a few days ago. That's from point C to point D on the above map. It has been very sunny and hot in Seville, around 38C. Today is the first day that we saw clouds!

We've been exploring Seville on foot and by subway to see:
1. The Royal Palace: it is magnificent, and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
2. The Cathedral and the Giralda Tower: the largest Gothic cathedral in the world and another UNESCO World Heritage site.
3. Plaza de EspaƱa and Park Maria Luisa: both are beautiful.
4. The Tower of Gold by the river.
5. Seville historic centre.

One unexpected disappointment is the unreliable and poor Internet service at our 4-star hotel. The worst we've had in our entire trip. Good thing we're returning home tomorrow.

Happy Friday and weekend!


  1. Your photos are gorgeous. Particularly the ones of Toledo. Spain and Portugal are next on my travel Europe wish list. #TeamLovinLife

    1. Thank you, Kathy, for your compliment. Toledo is a beautiful city, really an explorer's and photographer's dream. I hope Spain and Portugal are high on your travel list.

  2. Haha, love the Bear and the Strawberry Tree!! And also the railway station - Such great architecture! It sounds like you had a lovely trip.

    1. Thank you, Marion, for visiting and leaving a comment. So much history and wonderful architecture in Spain. I took a lot of pictures :-) I'm thinking of visiting Australia in late 2018-early 2019. I'll review the existing info on your web site and hope to connect with you if I have trip planning questions.
