Come Away With Me...
So, according to my health app I've taken approximately 24,000 steps to explore the little city of Seville and I can say that it is absolutely stunning!
Once we landed we were keen to drop off our bags straight away and begin to explore the city. Luckily we are located 20 minutes by foot from the city centre in Alameda de Hercules, which makes it super convenient to walk everywhere hence the insane number of steps.
After downloading a map of Seville, we fully embraced our touristic nature and took to wandering the streets with the aim to see as many landmarks as possible. Within two hours we found ourselves walking along the Paseo de Cristobal Colon, a beautiful walkway located beside the Rio Guadalquivir river which provided the perfect opportunity for some amazing snaps.
What is a trip to Seville without seeing the infamous bull fighting arena Plaza de toros de la Real Maestranza?
Although I will admit that I don't think that I have the stomach to watch a bullfight, the building was beautiful. I can imagine that the atmosphere last week during the festival period would have been absolutely magnificent with the beer flowing and tapas stands adding to the energetic Spanish vibe of the area.
Walking around the city you can't help but fall in love with the small cobbled pathways and colourful building bursting full of the culture of Seville. Around each corner is a landmark marking a significant event in Seville's history. When in the city you feel that it has a really authentic Spanish vibe that really differentiates from other Spanish cities.
As evening approached we entered Parque de Maria Luisa. The evening glow face the park an almost magical feel as the flowers and water twinkled in the evening Sun - making the scene even more beautiful that it already is.
This made for the perfect ending to a long day as we strolled through the garden and enjoyed a long walk home that took us int the early hours of the morning.
