As Seville was the last location for our month in Spain it was definitely a perfect way to end the visit. The moment you arrive it feels like you are immediately immersed in Spanish culture where you just want to watch Flamenco and eat Tapas. It just has that vibe about it. There is also something about warm weather in winter in a city that we find so appealing.
We stayed in a small one bedroom place in the middle of old town that we found on AirBnB just around the corner from Alameda de Hercules, named after the mythical founder of this city. This meant we had all the Tapas and evening culture that we could possibly handle on our doorstep and it definitely didn’t disappoint.
After exploring Metropol Parasol the moment we arrived we then spent our first evening eating various vegetarian Tapas back at Arte y Sabor. We were informed this bar is open 24/7 which given the local vibe didn’t surprise us at all.
The following day was spent exploring the 16th century in Plaza del Triunfo. Taking in Alcazar Royal Palace, Cathedral of Seville, Archives of the Indies and on to Plaza del Espana.
All incredible places which look all the more beautiful with the Spanish sun backdrop and palm trees. This part of the old town is pretty much car-free with transportation mainly covered on foot, horse drawn carriage, bicycle or modern light rail system which combines the old worlds with the new seamlessly.
Our final night in Seville was spent sitting by the Puente de Isabel II bridge by the Guadalquivir River watching the world go by eating Churros. This was a perfect way to round out our Spanish visit and we will definitely miss it.
