We had a wonderful time exploring Seville. The city has so much beauty and a great metro system which made it easy to get around to the major sights. Below are my top fifteen pictures from Seville.
Pictures 1 & 2 - The Plaza de España, a beautiful square in Maria Luisa Park in Seville, built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929:
Pictures 3 to 8 - The Real Alcázar (Royal Palace) of Seville, with a history stretching back more than a thousand years, and magnificent palaces, rooms, and gardens. It was registered in 1987 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO:
Pictures 9 to 13 - Seville Cathedral, the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world: the Cathedral ceiling (#9), Cathedral organs (#10), Tomb of Christopher Columbus (#11), Rosette (#12), and Silver or Jubilee altar (#13).
Picture 14 - The Giralda, the bell tower of the Seville Cathedral, was built in the 12th century, and was also registered in 1987 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO:
Picture 15 - The Tower of Gold (Torre del Oro) was constructed in the first third of the 13th century as a military watchtower in Seville:I hope you enjoy the pictures. I'll be posting my pictures from Gibraltar in the next post. Please feel free to leave a comment.
