SEVILLA in Andalucía, southern Spain, is home to the Alcázar de Sevilla. The Alcázar was originally a Moorish fort, then later a palace and now a World Heritage Site. The palace is one of the best remaining examples of mudéjar architecture. This is a photographer’s and historian’s delight. Also here is the Seville Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world.
They say that ‘flamenco is in Sevilla’s blood’…and this is evident everywhere in this lovely Spanish city. Our own Salli Gutierrez of Spain-Connection.com, is a flamenco dancer and well-connected with the dance scene in southern Spain.
But the thing I love about Seville is its unique sort of energy, a quirky mixture of Euro-modernism wrapped in ancient, exotic structures. The people are light-hearted, the food an incredible adventure in varying tastes. Our room was in a delightful hostel (hotel) right downtown, but so very quiet. Then, just one step out the front door and we were in a different time in history. Pure magic!
