- Sevilla's Cathedral. The third biggest cathedral in the world, was declared Humanity Heritage by the UNESCO in 1987. A monument compose for different areas like the Giralda Tower, El Patio de los Naranjos ("The Orange Trees Garden) and the Capilla Real (The Royal Chappel). Our recommendation is to climbing to the upper floor of the Giralda to admire the views, you will have all the city (and further away) on your sight.
- Real Alcazar / Royal Alcazar. This is the royal palace that has been active for a longer period in Europe. It finds its origin in the roman times, and its current architecture dates from the times of the muslim ocupation. An impressive construction where different cultures collide to create one of the most interesting sites of the city.
- Torre del Oro / "The Golden Tower". Situated on the left side of the river, this tower was part of the defensive walls of Sevilla. It was used as a church and a prision in the past, and nowadays you can find the Naval Museum of Sevilla.
- Triana's neighborhood. The most traditional area of Sevilla. If you close your eyes and think about the typical image you have about southern Spain, is probably Triana. Its ceramics, its traditional bars and food, its flamenco shows... You can't get lost in Triana for the whole day.
- Plaza de España / Spain's Square and Parque Maria Luisa /Maria Luisa Garden. Desinged by Ánibal Gonzalez, this square is probably one of the most beautiful squares in the world. Decorated with ceramic tiles, exquisitively painted representing each province of the country. Next to the square you can rest in the gardens, a big corner of nature bring to the city centre.
