    Wonderful place to wander around and we saw a brilliant flamenco dancer and band busking. You can also hire a boat for only 6euros which was great fun.

    One of the best, massive cathedrals I have visited. Views from the Bell Tower are great. The architecture inside and outside the cathedral are stunning.

    Climbed several old towers in Europe and this is by far the best. It's a long way up, but not at all claustrophobic and all ramps so you won't get tired as easily. The view form the top is spectacular. Worth the added admission from the cathedral.

    This is an unique structure and the largest wooden freestanding structure in the world. The views from the top are very good, although their are plenty of taller sites available in the city. The cost is 10 euros to visit the top or 15 euros for a double ticket which allows for a day time visit and a night time visit, the latter when the structure is lit up with ever changing colours. The combined price is not cheap but the night time photos of the colourful parasol lit up against a background of other floodlit churches/cathedrals and towers do make some fantastic shots.

    Triana is a nice neighborhood across the river from central Seville. My wife and I attended a flamenco show in Triana. There was a tapas restaurant we wanted to visit but it was full and we didn’t want to wait.

    This is a great beginning or end to a day of sightseeing.
    located 5 mins from the bus depot and the 15 from the main square it is a location well worth putting on your to see
    Housed in an old convent the art work is true to its environment with largely religious paintings and artifacts on display.
    The fee is a very wallet friendly 1.50 and you could spend at least an hour looking around

    I am not a fan of bullfighting and would never see a real event, but I do appreciate that it is part of Spain's culture. The cost was 10 euro PP with no time limit to look at the museums, the stands and the arena. The building was created in the 1800's and is a magnificent structure, so know what ever your views are on the sport, you cant fail to be impressed with the structure. A good detour from the usual attractions and time well spent if you have an hour to spare.

    We recently took a tour of the Campo Bravo ranch just outside Seville, which turned out to be one of more interesting experiences of our entire holiday. We spent an excellent 3 hours with our host Jean Christian who gave us a tour of this authentic working ranch, taking us up close and personal with the bulls of the ranch. JCs passion for the whole world of rearing bulls is evident (he was a picador himself), and his knowledge of the history of the world of the “Corridas de Toros” was really interesting and always engaging. Definitely worth a visit for an informative insight to this part of Spanish culture.

    We used our online combo ticket with Seville Cathedral to enter this church. At 11 am, mid-week in October, there was no line-up at the door and there were only a few visitors inside. This church is about a 10 minute walk from the Cathedral when using the main street where the City Hall is located. There are some stairs to climb before reaching the entrance door.

    The pink façade of San Salvadore Church makes it a stand out on the street so it is easily seen and provides a clue that the décor of this church is baroque in nature. The church is lovely inside, but then I tend to favor baroque churches. Quiet, not overly large, bright and clean, and very attractive with its many gilt decorated altars and religious figures. The main altar is just beautiful! Framed under a high arch, this altar seems to rise from the floor to the ceiling and is filled with elegant religious figures, both gilted and polychromed, that seem to be in motion with their outflung arms and bent legs. Two large angels hold aloft 2 silver censers on each side of this altar. Above them is an oval ceiling painting with religious figures surrounding a dove, all done in wonderful soft colors. In front of them is a simple modern looking altar holding several white tapers.

    Other altars in this church, placed along the sides and at the end of the 2 side aisles, had similar polychromed religious figures with surrounding gilt décor. These also seemed to be nestled between curved arches which provided a frame for each. What I liked about these altars was that each had a central theme illustrated by the large religious figures placed in its middle such as a crowned Virgin Mary, Jesus riding a donkey, a crucified Jesus, a risen Christ.

    Two other altars showed the figures of the first Spanish King Ferdinand who had conquered the Muslims and Christianized Spain and the 2 martyrs and “protectors of Seville”, Justa and Rufina. Each of these had an info board to explain their significance.

    The white fluted arched columns and white washed walls certainly made the gilt altars stand out. The vaulted ceiling was plain – no tracery. High celestorial windows placed on the second level did have colored glass but allowed bright light to come through too. Unlike gothic catholic churches, this one did not have stained glass windows.

    To see vintage carved and painted religious figures in the church’s “attic” (free), use the stairs at the end of the right side aisle. Public washroom is available at the end of the left side aisle.

    I was glad we had visited this church before the Seville Cathedral which is over the top with gilt altars everywhere.

    Beautiful, privately-owned and run city palace with an extraordinary collection of Roman artefacts on the ground floor. The €12 entrance fee includes a guided tour of the upstairs living quarters, before or after which you can explore the ground floor at your leisure. The peace and quiet are remarkable after the hurly-burly of the streets of Seville. Wholeheartedly recommended.
