After my two-day love affair with Granada, Seville had big shoes to fill. Luckily, I found that the city had a wonderful sense of importance to it. This was the major hub of ancient times, a city with a rich history of war and trade and wealth: a gateway to Africa and the Americas and, as a result, Seville has some elaborate architecture and some outrageous historic anecdotes. It would be tedious for me to explain each one in full since none of them tie together, so instead, here is just a selection of photos to show you how larger than life this city once was (and still is).
Also, the Alcazar (or ancient royal palace) is half shut down at the moment for more Game of Thrones filming… So lots more giddy excitement from me in the city…
