Until Next Time...
After the endless roaming of of the city we indulged in a lie in. However things did get a bit out of hand and we ended up waking to bright streams of sunlight pouring through our window at 2pm.
After quickly getting ready and wolfing down a delicious chocolate crepe or two from a nearby cafe, we walked into the city centre to see the Seville Cathedral.
The queues were pretty long but luckily they move really quickly and you gain free entry id you are an EU national (woo!). Considering the religious culture nestled in Seville, you can imagine how beautiful the interior of the cathedral is. The ceilings are covered in intricate carvings and the you can help but notice the designs of the stained glass windows.
From the cathedral you can access the Giralda Tower. Located in the centre of the Seville the tower offers a 360 degree view of the entire city.
The views from the top were breathtaking. To get to the top you have to go up 35 levels which isn't actually that bad especially if you think of what its doing for your glutes.
If you are brave enough to stick your phone through the protective barriers, which I can say I definitely was :), you can capture some really beautiful images of the city that will remain completely unforgettable.
Our last stop of the day was the Alcazar of Seville, a palace located in the centre of the city.
My trip to Seville gave me insight into authentic Spanish life. It isn't a shiny, glossy city like Madrid or Barcelona but that is what makes it so beautiful - its character. I feel like there is so much more to explore there and just enjoy which is why although I have to say goodbye to Seville for now, it most definitely won't be forever.
