A Day in Seville

Anticipation

I was thrilled to go back to Seville!

I was there for one day in 2009 while I was doing an internship in Salamanca. Back then I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t have more time to see more of the city. That’s why Seville was very high on my bucket list when I was staying in Tarifa this autumn.

With a stop in Cádiz I drove to the home of Flamenco.

When I arrived, it was already dark. I simply wanted to find my hotel and go to bed, because I was so tired from all the driving in the rain and the two-hours-stay in Cádiz. But it was a bit more difficult than expected since my hotel was in the city center and in a pedestrian zone.

I think I was searching for almost an hour for a parking garage (for almost 20 Euro per day).

Finally I arrived to the hotel which looked pretty cool at first sight:

Atrium Nuevo Suizo Sevilla

The staircase was pretty impressive.

I was staying in my room for the rest of the evening and went to bed before 10 PM.

First stop: Cathedral? Not today!

In the morning I wanted to explore the city. During my last stay I hadn’t seen anything but the cathedral.

It seemed almost ironic to me, that exactly on that day there was a procession to bring a statue from the cathedral to another chapel. In consequence I couldn’t even get close to the entrance of the cathedral due to all the people who wanted to assist this “event”. I wanted to come back after my trip, but in the end I was too tired.

I just enjoyed strolling through the city on this sunny day.

After I while I really wanted to see some of the highlights of Seville. So I took out the map to check the way to Plaza España, the nicest square of the city.

 

Plaza España and Maria Luisa Park

But first I came to Maria Luisa Park. A beautiful park with many green trees and palm trees. I had the impression that the Sevillanos come here to spend their Sunday afternoons.

Directly behind the park is Plaza España!

The square is huge half-circle with impressive buildings all around. A moat where you can go in a circle by boat has been built between the buildings and the square.

After that I went to the Guadalquivir, the river in Seville.

You can stroll along the riversides for hours and hours, but first I took a break and sat down close to the Triana bridge which is leading you to the trendy neighbourhood. I wasn’t really interesting to go to a bar on the other side, so I just enjoyed the sun and the view.

Although it was late, I decided to walk along the riverside of the Guadalquivir for another hours and then go back to the hotel.

On my way I passed this beautiful wooden structure called Metropol Parasol. It was built in 2011 by the German architect Jürgen Mayer.

Although I didn’t see a lot, I’m happy that I simply enjoyed the day. Like this I went to Ronda relaxed and not stressed out.
