When we found ourselves planning a 10 day road trip to Spain this year, my husband and I immediately agreed that we would stop in Seville. Admittedly, at the time we had no real knowledge of the city. We weren’t entirely sure what it was that made us want to visit, but boy am I glad we did!
Plaza de España
I was mesmerized and inspired by the intricate tile work kissing almost every surface of the building and its architectural details.
Out front is a moat with row boats for rent which was so wildly romantic I can’t imagine it hasn’t been featured in any scenes in a Hollywood romantic comedy. The building is open from 8 a.m.- 10 p.m. and admission is free.
Plaza de Toros de Seville
While bullfighting is definitely not for the faint of heart (or stomach), it is a historic tradition in Spain. From April through September, you can visit the Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla to witness the custom first hand. If you’re visiting off-season or just aren’t sure about watching a fight live, stop into the museum and art gallery located inside and get another view of the institution.
