We have been working out what we should see whilst we are in Seville. We decided to have a look at the gothic cathedral. Apparently the 3rd largest cathedral in the world behind the Vatican and St Paul's in London.
We negotiated the typical streets to the cathedral. Cobblestones are the order of the day. Not much fun on a bicycle and we have done a few !
When you enter the cathedral you are given a time to climb the tower and a time to tour the cathedral . Now I'm not a fan of heights or cathedrals but on both counts I was blown away.
Unfortunately its very sunny and warm so I had to strip to my shirt sleeves 😎😇.
The tower is 36 flights up but no steps as it's ramped which makes it easier the views were spectacular.
In every direct. The above has a view of the bull ring which surprisingly and horrifically still functions as such.
Once down we entered the cathedral which House Christopher Columbus coffin.
The place is immense full of gold and silver and incredible architecture. Apparently it was initially a mosque but then taken over by the catholics. The expense and decadence is mind blowing. So much to see it became a little overwhelming.
The cathedral left us conflicted beautiful and impressive but so much wealth compared to so much poverty!
We left and sat in the sun before walking to the trendy area of Seville to discover it was only trendy after dark😳.
Great walls though.
We past an example of how Seville merges old with new. Locally it's referred to as the mushroom. We could have had a closer look but that would have cost us so decided not too.
We then circled around to a recommended pub close to us.
Not too shabby.
So we've walked,cycled ,touristed and had a drink or 2 in Sevill. Still loads to do! And all in glorious weather.
Tomorrow more sightseeing and booking the next trip of the journey to Morocco. We think we have the bus and ferry sorted so fingers crossed 🤞.
If Seville is not on you wish list it should be. Especially in January 😎😎
