Is visiting Seville one of your travel destination’s wish list items? Do you wish to visit this region by yacht? Both are possible due to Seville’s unique inland port; the only one in all of Spain. Being located on the Guadalquivir river, Sevilla can be accessed by rail, air, motorway, and ship.
In this blog post we share with you 4 things you can do in this beautiful city:
1.Discover the historical centre which houses 3 important Unesco World Heritage sites
The Cathedral of Seville, with its Giralda, the Royal Alcazar and the General Archives of the Indies are must see monuments. Our recommendation is to meander the streets enjoying all the sights and sounds of the centre. This area of Seville can be enjoyed without a car as many of its streets are pedestrian zones only.
2. Other interesting areas outside the historical centre that are worth a visit
If you visit the famous Spain square (Plaza España) you will immediately experience a sense of harmony and peace as you enjoy the Renaissance Revival architecture style of the building that surrounds it. The superb plaza was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition. This complex has been immortalized in movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars and Game of Thrones. It is also special as it´s building is decorated with ceramic tiles representing all of the provinces of Spain. Also it is located next to the Maria Luisa Park; a green space that includes gardens of the San Telmo palace. Just a 15 - 20 minutes-walk from this area, you will find yourself in the neighbourhoods of Triana and Los Remedios or next to iconic places such as the Gold tower (Torre de Oro) near the river or the famous Santa Cruz neighbourhood.
