If you want to find yourself in a fairy tale, you must visit Seville.
Seville is only 200 km from the Algarve. The trip is pleasant and exciting. Spain is a few km away. 59 km from Faro, having crossed the bridge over the Guadiana, we are already in Ayamonte, the first Spanish border town. Immediately we feel the contrast between the two countries. We will compare these differences along the way.
Entering Seville, you will see the scenery of the "One Thousand and One Nights." The spirit of the Arab world is still present in the architecture, the customs, and even the sounds. Standing at the foot of the Giralda, it seems you can hear the voice of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. Walking through the gardens and courtyards of Alcázar, we anticipate meeting the timid oriental beauty. In Alcázar, Columbus received a blessing from the Spanish monarchs. And the tomb of the famous explorer is nearby in the Cathedral. However, this story is shrouded in secrets and mysteries, more of which I will tell you later. Let's walk past the Tobacco Factory, where the gypsy girl Carmen worked. We will not pass by the Golden Tower, imagining the ships from the New World full of gold. Next, we will visit the beautifully painted Plaza de España, spread out like a huge horseshoe print, the symbol of the always inherently horse-drawn carriage. The narrow streets of the Jewish Quarter whisper wonderful and tragic love stories. It's a real mix of Moorish and Christian cultures. At every step, you hear the clatter of castanets and see the mesmerizing Spanish girls dancing Flamenco to the sound of guitars. You will never forget beautiful Seville, and, just like me, you will want to come back here again and again.
