Hello my lovely readers 🙂 How’s everything going?
Last weekend I went to Sevilla to visit a friend. It was my first time in Sevilla and the city has really captivated me. Everything from the architecture, the weather and the people was incredible. So today I want to share with you the pictures that I took on this trip.
The first thing that we visited was Sevilla’s cathedral, which is the third largest church in the world and the largest of Gothic design. The Cathedral was built during the 15th and 16th centuries, in the spot where the city’s mosque once stood during the Moorish occupation, that’s why it has a mixture of gothic and islamic architecture. The Giralda (which is the high tower) is one of the symbols of the city. Inside the cathedral is the tomb of Christopher Columbus.
Then we had a walk next to the river and we visited Triana, which the most famous district Seville. The neighborhood is particularly known for its flamenco and beautiful houses decorated with tiles.
After walking around Triana we went to the “Torre del Oro”, which is a twelve-sided tower stands out along the riverfront. Built by the Moors in the 1200s it had defence purposes. You can also climb up the tower for river views from the roof.
Next we went to the Maestranza Bullring, that day we were lucky enough that it was an open door day and we could walk inside. It’s one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen.
So I’m going to end here this first part of the trip and I’ll pick it up on second blog post next Sunday.
