For my main summer holiday this year I was really keen to go to Portugal, a country I’d never been to before, but had been eyeing up for a while via Instagram and various friend’s social media. On looking at flights I actually worked out it was cheaper to fly to Seville in Spain rather than direct to Portugal. So I jumped at the chance to bag another city and Seville was a revelation, and yet still less than a hour from the Algarve. I didn’t know much about Seville, but on researching found out that it had recently been voted Lonely Planet European city of the year to visit. There’s so many great things to do in Seville, I’m surprised it wasn’t on my radar before.
Seville Cathedral is the world’s largest Gothic church and dominates the centre of the City. I’m not hugely religious or into churches, but I actually quite enjoyed looking round. The cathedral also houses to the tomb of the famous explorer Christopher Columbus, so that was interesting to check out as well.
