The Alcazar, built for the Christian king Peter of Castile, is part of a royal palace that the Spanish royal family still uses. This gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage site's grand staterooms and regal halls are well-preserved, and the gardens and courtyards are equally stunning.

Seville Cathedral is another incredible historical site and one of the world's biggest cathedrals. The tomb of Christopher Columbus lies inside, and you can see the cathedral's bell tower, the Giralda, an iconic part of the cathedral.







On a modern note, the Space Metropol Parasol at La Encarnación Square gives epic views of the city and makes a unique experience as you walk around the futuristic-looking structure. The largest wooden structure in the world features shopping, a museum, and restaurants.

The Alamillo Bridge is another dramatic-looking contemporary structure. The white bridge spans the Canal de Alfonso XIII, and you can walk or drive over it to La Cartuja, where there is a big theme park and a popular riverside path for walking or cycling.








Another impressive site is Plaza de Espana. The semi-circle plaza and canal is a lovely place to stroll around with pretty bridges and wide-open spaces. Ride in a horse-drawn cart for some romantic moments.

The Triana district offers a blast of color with brightly painted shops and Moorish buildings. It is also a great place to catch some live flamenco music. Stop in at the Santa Ana Church, which was built in 1276. An interesting legend claims children who are baptized there will be blessed with a great flamenco voice.
