Holidays to Seville

Situated along the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville is split into two halves. The river has played quite a role in the city’s history, trade, and importance throughout time. The many whitewashed houses trimmed with bougainvillea, palaces, and baroque facades set Seville apart from many other Spanish cities. Picturesque enough, holidays to Seville also allow a swanky, sophisticated feel.

There are plenty of places to see while visiting Seville. Holidays to Seville are often complemented by sightseeing tours to the old houses of worship, though a tour is not required to enjoy the city’s offerings. Do not miss the Basilica de la Macarena. This church holds one of the city’s most highly revered images, ‘The Virgin of Hope’ otherwise known as La Macarena. La Macarena is the patron of gypsies and the protector of the matador, so she is especially important to inhabitants of Seville.

If you are interested in the rich culture of Seville, do not miss the chance to see the Plaza de Toros Real Maestranza. The bullring was built in1760-1763 and has housed many bullfights. Some Seville holidays are actually planned around when visitors can actually see such an event. The bullring offers guided tours and a museum.

Another landmark worth mentioning is the Cathedral of Seville. It is one of the largest cathedrals in the world. Built in the 15th century, this grand cathedral was built over a giant mosque that was originally there in the 12th century. The Cathedral of Seville also houses the remains of Christopher Columbus. For those seeking palatial sights, the Real Alcazar is an ideal location. It is a gorgeous palace built in the Moorish style by Pedro I the Cruel. It has a myriad of rooms, elaborate architecture, and lavish gardens to explore. The palace also houses the room in which Christopher Columbus’ journey to the New World was planned.

You may also want to visit the Torre de Oro. It is a tower build in the 13th century that now houses the local maritime museum. Local folklore suggests that the tower was once covered in gold from top to bottom.

The Jewish Quarter is also a frequent stop for those on holiday in Seville. It is considered one of the most charming sections of the city with small winding streets and plenty of shops. There are also plenty of eateries in the quarter.

Holidays in Seville should also include a little bit of flamenco. The dance is very popular in Seville and a large part of Spanish culture. Visit the Museo del Baile Flamenco for a history on the dance as well as performances throughout the year. If you are daring enough, why not find a local venue and do a little dancing yourself.
