3 Things To Do In The Port Of …Seville

19th February 2019

Guadalquivir and Guadiana River cruises sail along the south of Spain, allowing guests to see breathtaking views of the coastline. These river cruises start in the passionate city of Seville, where tourists can visit many famous landmarks, try the local cuisine and maybe something else?

Here are a few places that we recommend you don’t miss during your stay in Seville.

Plaza De España

Plaza De España

Many people choose Guadalquivir and Guadiana River cruises to see the beautiful sights along the south of Spain, one of these being the Plaza de España, located in the Parque de María. There is the opportunity to go for a boat ride along the canal or a horse and carriage tour, on which you’ll enjoy the plaza from a unique viewpoint.

This expansive square was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The alluring buildings showcase Regionalism architecture, meaning they’re made with new building materials and technologies but mixed with Spanish Renaissance Revival styles. Also, the Museo Militar Regional is within the grounds of the Plaza and is well worth a visit.

Real Alcázar De Sevilla

Real Alcázar De Sevilla

The Real Alcázar is right next to the Plaza de España and is a Moorish Royal Palace built in the late 11th century and still used to this day. This elaborate structure includes Renaissance-inspired artistic values in the design of the altar and altarpiece. Lectures on the culture of the Palace are held daily to give you more of an insight into what life would have been like at the time.

Red slated pathways surround the beautiful gardens filled with fountains, encouraging visitors to wander around. The entry fee is 9.50 euros and most definitely worth it, as there is the chance to have a guided or audio tour in; English, French, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Chinese and Korean.

Catedral De Sevilla

Catedral De Sevilla

This breathtaking Roman Catholic cathedral is near the Real Alcázar of Seville and is one of the largest Christian churches in the world. It was built in the 15th century and is still used to this day. As well as the cathedral’s beautiful Gothic architecture, it also has a Renaissance-style minaret called La Giralda. We highly recommend a walk to the top of this bell tower to take in the stunning panoramas of Seville.

Within the cathedral, there are several pieces of art produced by Spanish artists. You can see these during guided tours, which are conducted throughout the day to help you understand more about this beautiful, Spanish landmark.
