Seville exhibits both natural and architectural graces, including a perfect climate
, and an Arabic past filled with splendour. For the relics of this past, look no further than the Royal Palaces, the Golden Tower and the Giralda Bell Tower. Other high points of the city's architecture include the gothic extravagance
of its Cathedral and the indescribable magic
of its Triana and Santa Cruz Districts.
Most of Seville's museums are located in historical buildings that you want to look at almost as much as their exhibits, from the Museum of Contemporary Art in the Carthusian Monastery, to the Museum of Art and Popular Customs in the Mudejar Pavilion and the Naval Museum in the Golden Tower. The Seville Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most important galleries in Spain
, while the Bullfighting Museum manages to communicate all the spectacle of the occasion it celebrates.
The city boasts numerous pubs, restaurants and sidewalk cafés
where you can enjoy a good time, good wine and delicious Andalusian dishes in equal measure. In Seville city centre, you will find the best of Spanish and international shops
, as well as small street markets with charming regional products.
