Andalusia | Seville

Friday, 22 July 2016

 I was in Spain for around 10 days travelling and touring the Andalusian cities with my dad. It was easily one of my favourite holidays ever! The first city we went to was Seville and stayed there for 2 days before moving onto Cordoba however we did return to Seville towards the end of our trip and spent another day there before coming home. We only stayed in a small 3 star hotel but it was more than enough and was plonked right in the centre with a MASSIVE Zara across the road and so many more shops. Oh and McDonalds was like 3 minutes away it was fab. So many photos were taken throughout the couple of days we were there so here they are. We did go on a tour bus for one of the days which was so convenient because not only did it transport you around the city, they also offered a free guided tour of the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz which was amazing. We went to the Torro del Oro, a watchtower over the Gualidivir river used by the Andalusian kings. Plaza Espana was absolutely stunning ermagahd!!! The architecture was so intricate, I loved the warm tones of the building and all the colourful mosaics. We also went to the Alcazar which was developed by the Moorish Muslim kings (ayyyy reppin') It was so eye opening and genuinely interesting to travel around all the Andalusian cities, as they were previously occupied by the Muslim Moors (Moroccan ancestors) so learning about all the history and seeing traces of my own culture in Spain was pretty cool. And once again, the architecture and all the attention to detail in the palace was so so so beautiful. Anyway, enjoy the (very many) photos- the next travel post will be on Cordoba...

    1. THANKS! Such beautiful cities right? All the restaurants offered food that was mostly made up of iberico ham but seeing as I don't eat pork it made finding food so impractical some times.
