Travel to Seville Spain

So, I was told that one of the places to ‘must’ visit in Spain was Seville.  We took a side day trip to visit this city while staying in Malaga, it’s about two hours away but we had to see it since it was highly recommended.  When we arrived I was impressed with the building architectures since they were very well preserved.  The designs have a mixture of Euro and Moorish influences, where there’s lots of repeated patterns and details.

At the heart of the city, everything is walking distance.  The main three places we wanted to see were: Alcazar of Seville, Seville Cathedral and Plaza de Espana (this one was a 10 minute walk).  The first place we wanted to see was the Cathedral but it was closed so we headed to the Alcazar (thankfully it was open and FREE).

After visiting the Alcazar, we walked about 10 minutes to see Plaza de Espana.  I didn’t do much research about Seville before going, so I wasn’t expecting much about the next place.   To my surprise, I was taken a back.  Plaza de Espana is magnificent, luxurious, and astonishing (too many adjectives to describe how beautiful it is).  I think they only used the best of the best materials to build this place.  I would definitely go to Seville, just to see Plaza de Espana.
