In this way, you can understand how it was possible that in the 16th century Seville became one of the most important cities, not only in Spain but in the entire world. The Catholic Monarchs chose it to transform it socially and economically, resulting in abundance and cultural diversity. Proof of this is its architecture that remains until today and is clearly visible in every inch of its streets and squares.
We start the free tour in the well-known Plaza Nueva, passing through the imposing city hall of Seville. We will also contemplate the exquisite architecture of the cathedral, which served as both, a Christian and an Islamic temple at various historical moments. And of course, this visit will not be completed without observing its majestic tower, known worldwide as La Giralda.
In addition, we will know the Old Tobacco Factory and the emblematic Puerta de Jerez, a true piece of historical importance, since it was one of the main doors of the old city wall that was built during the Modern Age and is preserved until our days.
We continue towards the charming Plaza del Triunfo, whose beauty and sobriety mark the concentration point of the city site that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There, our expert local guide will explain in detail the Royal Alcazars and also the unique Archive of the Indies, which register the largest Ibero-American library in the world, which you will have the opportunity to know, participating in this tour.
Soon after, we head towards the Guadalquivir River, which not only stands out for its picturesque landscapes, but for having been a determining protagonist in the history of the city, and where you will discover the splendid Torre del Oro (you can already imagine why it is called that ), and we will also visit the Port and the Puerta de Indias.
But this doesn’t end there, as we still have to know an event that marked a before and after in the history of Seville, and it’s not so long ago, in 1929. We are talking about the Ibero-American Exhibition. Many architectural works that had been specially built for this event are still preserved today, such as the beautiful Híspalis Fountain, or the majestic building of the Hotel Alfonso XIII, named in tribute to the sovereign and which was the most luxurious in the city in that year.
Last but not least, we will meet some of the former pavilions of the Expo, such as Portugal and, of course, Seville. Finally, you will be amazed by what was the Spanish pavilion, which after the Expo became what is now; the world-famous Plaza de España, without a doubt one of the most splendid public spaces in Seville.
