Apr 1, 2008
Here you will find the minaret of La Giralda, one of the largest cathedrals in Christendom and the Alcazar Palace. These may be the main attractions of the city, but its historical and architectural treats do not end there. It is also home to the Casa de Pilatos, the Torro del Oro, the old Town Hall, the Archive of the Indies and the second largest art gallery in Spain, the Fine Arts Museum. Aside from these specific tourist spots, there are many other cathedrals, churches and palaces that are popular to visit.

La Giralda, the city's cathedral was built between 1401 and 1519 and its interesting architecture reflects this. It features the longest nave in Spain. Its architecture is particularly interesting in that it used parts of the mosque on which it was built, in its building. Some of the columns and a minaret that were converted to be incorporated into the cathedral can be seen. It is extravagantly decorated with large amounts of gold. It is must see among all the impressive structures in Seville. The Alcazar Palace faces the city's cathedral. It was built from the old Moorish palaces of Seville and beautiful gardens that bring together Moorish, Andalusian and Christian themes are situated there.

It is a vibrant and colorful town that has a reputation for being lively and striking. If for no other reason, Seville is worth a visit just for the fun and entertainment that you will experience while being there. Seville has a week long religious festival, known as Semana Santa. Hooded penitents march along crowded streets followed by large floats. The week following the Semana Santa, Seville hosts an annual performance known as Feria de Abril. It runs for a week and there you will find thousands of marquis, food and dancing at all times of day or night, men mounted on stunning horses and women clad in colorful flamenco dresses. These spring festivals are a treat to behold for those lucky enough to be in the city at that time of year.

There are many accommodation options in Seville and tourists to the area can choose anything from a traditional hotel to a modernized palace. Here you will find approximately 20,000 sleeping options for visitors so it is likely that you will find the ideal accommodation to suit you. Visitor accommodation ranges from five star hotels down to simple and affordable guest houses. The prices of holiday accommodation in Seville are on the rise, however, due to its popularity. As Seville is a popular all-round holiday destination, despite the abundance of accommodation options, it can book up relatively far in advance. Therefore, you must make sure that you book for your holiday long before you plan to arrive, to avoid any disappointments. This is particularly important if you plan to visit during the festival months.
