Sevilla was probably the most “tourist-y” thing we did while in Spain. (We stayed away from the crowds in general, just due to preference.) But I am really glad we took the trip to the city! We hopped on a train and then met up with my sister and her husband, who came over from their trip to Italy to see us for a few days. We spent most the day walking the streets, and touring the cathedral and Real Alcázar de Sevilla. It was beautiful! We also ate delicious gelato, and I continued my love affair with orange trees, including a lame selfie with one.
Seriously, so beautiful. Maybe I need to move to Arizona or something… or just Spain? 🙂
Sevilla had beautiful buildings and colors throughout the city, I wanted to take pictures of everything!
The lady jumped into my shot right before I took the photo… I think it makes it more interesting anyway.
The size of the cathedral just doesn’t show through pictures very well. It was so breathtaking!
The main altar
Looking at the altar through the gate. It was still decorated from Christmas which was fun!
The supposed burial of Christopher Columbus’ bones. (There is also a church in the Dominican Republic that claims to hold his bones.)
My favorite part of the cathedral were the little rooms/secret passages along the sides. I loved this ceiling!
Climbing up the bell tower
The details! And the orange trees!
For all those Longmire fans out there, we saw this guy and thought he looked like the fancy Spanish version of Longmire. Eh?
Entering the Real Alcazar
Beautiful details everywhere!
It’s hard to tell unless you look at the ceiling, but this tapestry was larger than the wall! And the wall was massive.
I told you, lame selfie.
