Originally founded as a Roman city and now home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Seville is bursting with antique charm. The Alcazar palace complex is a stunning collage of architectural styles, and the Cathedral will impress you with its beauty and its status as the burial site of Christopher Columbus. The Metropol Parasol is the world’s largest wooden structure, a massive mix of grids and swirls that contains a market and a terrace observatory.

Built on the edge of the Maria Luisa Park in the 1920s in a huge semi circle with bridges, moats and fountains this is definitely the number one spot to visit whilst in Seville.

Construction of this palace began in 1492. Today, part of the palace is a museum and is open to the public. There is a separate wing where the present Duchess of Medinaceli lives with her descendants and family. The palace has many gardens, patios, fountains, and salons. The patios contain many Roman statues. Everywhere on the first floor one will find Roman mosaic floors. The walls are covered with beautiful ceramic tile in many different Mudejar styles.
The Casa de Pilatos is famous for its magnificent patio and well-kept gardens, while the precious coloured ceramic tiles are considered to be among the finest in Seville. The Casa de Pilatos has around 150 different 1530s Spanish glazed tile. designs made by the brothers Diego and Juan Pulido, one of the largest azulejo collections in the world. It is the finest example of a civil palace in Seville. The building is a mixture of Italian Renaissance and Spanish Mudéjar elements and decorations. It is the prototype of the Andalusian palace At the end of 2009, Tom Cruise filmed the movie Knight and Day with Cameron Diaz at the palace.

This lovely structure was originally built as a minaret for a mosque, although it has since been converted into a bell tower.
This tower first has been constructed as a minaret of the masque by moorish caliphate in 10 or 11 century and then its changed to a bell tower of the cathedral when Christian conquered Seville in 12 century. I recomend to climb it and visit the town from 104m high tower.

Rumor has it that this beautiful tower was once tiled in gold; now, it houses a museum detailing the maritime history of the city.
worth the climb just for the views. Museum was small but interesting, we learnt a lot about the Spanish naval history .

An archive containing some of the most important historical records of Spanish colonialism in the Americas.
This fabulous building houses ancient documents illustrating the history of the Spanish empire. Very serene and another building in Seville that has been registered a world heritage site by UNESCO

We were glad that we arrived early prior to sunset to purchase tickets and take the elevator to the top as the lines quickly grew long (6 Euros admission for two). It is said to be the world’s largest wooden structure and has a museum housing archaeological remains found on site, restaurants, shops, and at its highest level a panoramic walkway that offers beautiful views over the city. Walking high above the city and watching the sun set was a truly memorable way to say farewell to Seville. We had so much fun!

This beautiful monastery, founded in 1400, served as the treasury for Christopher Columbus' family wealth.
