Sevilla


A few weekends ago our ISA group went on a weekend trip to Sevilla and Cordoba (my post on Cordoba will be up soon too!) We did a walking tour of Sevilla that included the Alcazaba which is the old palace. Its actually where the royal family still goes when they come to Sevilla. I went on a trip to Sevilla when I was in Spain a few years ago so I had already been to all of the places we went on the tour. The Alcazaba was cool to see from a new perspective because some episodes of Game of Thrones were filmed there so it was neat to see the places from the episodes! After the Alcazaba we went to the Cathedral which is the third largest cathedral in the world! Attached to the Cathedral is the Giralda, which is a really tall bell tower. It has really pretty views of the city. In the evening we had free time and went to the other most iconic place in Sevilla, the Plaza de España, which was built for the Ibero-American exposition in 1929. There is a little section for all the provinces of Spain and it was fun to see the Malága one!
