Guided tour of Seville
A local proverb says “He who has not seen Seville has not seen a wonder”… To understand this saying we will venture into Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter. A stroll in the maze of narrow and entangled streets, will lead you in an extraordinary setting featuring in famous operas, dramas and novels. In this quarter, embellished with whitewashed or painted houses and flowered courtyard, we will also follow the footsteps of Murillo, the Sevillan Baroque painter, being last year the 400th anniversary of his birth.
Then beside visiting the Royal Alcázar and the Cathedral, both declared World Heritage Sites by Unesco, you could enjoy seeing the city from a completely different perspective. Take the opportunity to discover Triana, on the opposite side of the Guadalquivir River, that was traditionally home to sailors, bullfighters, potters and flamenco dancers or climb the Metropol Parasol, the city icon, locally known as las setas (the mushrooms) and get a fairly great 360 degree view of the city.
