Top Incentives in Seville
Real Alcázar of Seville
Nestled in the heart of Seville, the Real Alcazar is a living testament to Spain’s rich history and architectural brilliance. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its intricate blend of Mudejar, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque styles, enchants visitors with its ornate courtyards, halls adorned with exquisite tilework, and lush gardens. This is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon in Seville getting lost in the hundreds of years of history!
Originally a Moorish fortress in the 10th century, the Alcazar has evolved over centuries, serving as a royal palace for Spanish monarchs. It even played a role in “Game of Thrones” as the Water Gardens of Dorne. Enjoy a guided tour and learn more about the history of the castle or simply wander and take in the gardens under the beautiful Spanish sun, your choice!
Visit Seville Cathedral and Wander The Old City Streets
Another UNESCO world heritage site, Seville Cathedral is an architectural masterpiece nestled in the heart of this captivating city! A gothic wonder, the cathedral’s soaring spires and intricate interiors are a sight to behold. The Giralda bell tower, originally a minaret, offers breathtaking vistas of the city and is absolutely not to be missed!
After immersing yourself in the cathedral’s splendor, step into the enchanting labyrinth of Seville’s Old Town streets. Lose yourself in the narrow alleys that wind between centuries-old buildings and lively plazas, discover hidden tapas bars serving delectable Spanish cuisine and soak in the city’s vibrant atmosphere!
