Let the scent of orange blossoms accompany you on a journey through the charming barrio Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter with its narrow streets of whitewashed houses, gaily flowered balconies and hidden squares shaded by flowering orange trees. Your private guide will show you Seville’s magnificent 15th century Gothic cathedral and La Giralda bell tower, a Moorish minaret erected in the 12th century as a tower for the chief mosque and now symbol of Seville. Across the square is the entrance of the impressive Real Alcazar palace dating from the 10th century and completed after the Christian re-conquest in typical Múdejar style. Hiding a labyrinth of rooms, exquisitely decorated patios and exotic gardens, it is one of the oldest royal residences in Europe still in use today. The adjacent Renaissance building of the Archivo de Indias houses a treasure of information on the discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus initiating Seville’s Golden Age as the seaport to the Americas and one of the greatest capitals in Europe with a tremendous monumental and artistic value declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Don’t miss out on one of Spain’s most passionate art forms and enjoy a flamenco show in one of the city’s finest tablaos. It would be our pleasure to make reservations for you. You can opt for a show only or combine with dinner for a fun evening on the town
You can perfectly visit the heart of the monumental area of Seville on foot with your guide from the hotel.
