In December of 2012 I decided to visit Seville, the capital of Andalusia and a great city both for its culture and its environment.
Seville has a small Metro network to get around but the city can be visited by walking without great difficulty.
The best months to visit Seville are the months of Spring and Autumn and even in Winter the temperatures can be pleasant, the summer months the heat makes it difficult to walk on the street during the day.
These are the main places to visit in Seville:
Possibly the most beautiful square in Spain and one of the best in the world.
Located in the María Luisa Park, it was completed in 1929.
On the walls of the square there are 48 banks representing the 46 Spanish provinces and the 2 archipelagos.
The Giralda is the bell tower of the Cathedral of Santa María de la Sede de Sevilla.
With its 101 meters high it was for several centuries the tallest tower in Spain and one of the highest in Europe.
In 1987 it was declared a World Heritage Site.
For € 8 you can visit the Cathedral and the Giralda.
Tower of Gold
Built in the 13th century, it served as the most important defensive tower as it defended the city's port.
It currently houses the Naval Museum of Seville.
You can visit for € 3 every day.
Alcazar of Seville
Together with the Plaza de España it is the most beautiful place in Seville, a wonder built throughout history by different kingdoms.
It is the residence of the Spanish Royal Family in its visits to Seville and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987
The price of the ticket is € 11.50.
With the aim of renovating the Plaza de la Encarnación, in 2004 a contest was held and gave rise to the so-called Setas de Sevilla.
It is the largest wooden structure in the world and at its highest point has a viewpoint in which you get beautiful views of the city.
The price to go up to the viewpoint is € 3.
The Cathedral of Seville is the largest Christian Gothic cathedral in the world.
In 2010 it was declared a Good of Outstanding Universal Value.
Built in the 15th century on the site occupied by the Mosque before its demolition, of which only La Giralda remains.
With almost two million visitors per year it is the fifth most visited monument in Spain.
You can access inside for a price of € 9.
Seville is one of the cities where football is lived with more intensity thanks to the historical rivalry between Betis and Sevilla.
Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium
Stadium where Sevilla FC plays its games, with a capacity for 40,000 spectators.
It hosted the 1982 World Cup, in which two games were played.
