I was looking at flights for a trip I have in mind in May and reminded that last year in May I was lucky to travel to the east coast of Spain where my travel companion and I ended our trip in Seville. After spending four days there it quickly rose to the top of my all time favorite cities in Europe.
We traveled at the perfect time, when the jacaranda trees were in bloom and the streets less crowded with tourists than they often are in the summertime. It also gets hot and a little humid there so we we’re lucky to have visited when the weather was warm and sunny throughout the day but not uncomfortable, and balmy at night which allowed for even more time to explore.
Seville is one of the most charming cities I’ve ever been to, it truly has everything that makes a city great: incredible architecture, a lovely riverwalk, markets, cafes, and plazas to sit and sip sangria. It offers the best of flamenco and an old town to stroll around and the exquisitely beautiful Plaza de Espana with staircases, terraces, and lamposts covered in the most beautiful Spanish tile. I’m sure I took a hundred pictures of all the wrought iron balconies, doors, and architectural details that caught my eye around every bend of every street.
How about a virtual vacation to the city of Seville? Below are a few snapshots from the sunny streets in the south of Spain.
While staying in Seville, we rented this central apartment in the old town, it was accessed through a lovely courtyard and very comfortable, I recommend it if you’re visiting!</
