I was so impressed by the Royal Alcazar of Seville. It is apparently the oldest palace still in use in Europe, and the intricate details of Renaissance, Gothic and Moorish architecture throughout the palace took my breath away. We also paid the additional fee to tour the royal apartments, which gave us more insight on the rooms and lives of the royal family.
The Seville Cathedral is the third largest church in the world and is conveniently located right by the Alcazar, so we made sure to stop by for a visit. It is also the burial site of Christopher Columbus! I've always been interested in history, so learning about Spanish history with relation to each place we visited was so cool. We also climbed ramps that were equivalent to 30+ flights of stairs up the Giralda Tower for a beautiful view of Seville.
Our last stop for the day was a fairly recent addition to Seville and supposedly the largest wooden structure in the world - Metropol Parasol. Viewing it from different angles gave us unique perspectives of the structure, and we walked as far back as we could to snap this photo of the whole thing. We also paid a few euros to take the elevator to the top where we took a wifi break, had some drinks, and enjoyed the breeze. Such a perfect way to relax and end the day.
We did get lost walking back to our hotel, but with pretty views on the way like this one, I can't complain. Seville was so much fun! I'd definitely recommend spending some time here to see and explore the city.
