At the end of the tour, you'll also have the chance to climb to the top of the Giralda tower and see the city from above. Let's have a quick look at the places you'll visit:

Feel like royalty at Seville's Royal Alcázar Palace

Real Alcázar de Sevilla is an important place on the map of Seville as it served as an administrative building and royal residence for different rulers. This complex of palaces dates back to the 11th century when the first caliph of Al-Andalus decided to build a castle which was later turned into a palace for the Muslim king. After Spain reclaimed Seville in the 14th century, it was adjusted to the needs of its Christian monarchs and the complex was expanded. The Mudéjar Palace, built in the 14th century by Pedro I, is the best example of the Mudejar style which was so popular in this region.

An interesting fact is that Real Alcázar de Sevilla is still in use and where the Spanish king resides during visits to Andalusia. Tours of the Royal Alcázar Palace allow you to see the intricate salons, tiled walls, beautiful gardens and courtyards. Are you a fan of Game of Thrones? Some parts of this complex and gardens may seem familiar to you, and you won't be mistaken. This was one of the shooting locations for this famous show.

Step inside the grandiose Cathedral of Saint Mary

The most popular site in the city, Seville Cathedral is, reportedly, the largest gothic church in the world. During the times of the Moors, a mosque stood in its place. In 1401, about a century after Seville was reclaimed, the Christian rulers decided to build an enormous cathedral in place of the mosque. Some elements of the mosque were preserved as parts of the church. Around the same time, Seville became an important centre of trade, so the cathedral was meant to represent its wealth. Construction of the cathedral took about a century and since then it has been refurbished frequently so you can see influences from different styles over the centuries. Before entering the cathedral, you will walk through a charming Patio de los Naranjos, which, as the name suggests, is full of orange trees. If you happen to be in Seville in spring, you are likely to smell their nice aroma all around you.

Take in the city views from the Giralda Tower during Seville Walking Tour

Today's symbol of Seville, the Giralda Tower is one of the few pieces that were kept from the former mosque. Originally, it was a minaret built in the 12th century. Together with the construction of the cathedral, it was turned into an impressive bell tower. It is almost 100 meters high and offers some spectacular views of the city. So if you don't mind the climb to the top, we couldn't recommend it more. Just make sure to have your camera at the ready!

A few words about Seville, Spain

Seville is one of the most popular cities in Europe, and it's no surprise considering how much it has to offer. Although not as large as Madrid or Barcelona, this city in the south of Spain is an architectural marvel with a rich history. Having been under the rule of the Arab Moors for around 800 years during the Middle Ages, Moorish influences are not hard to find in Seville. If you'd like to see an outstanding example of Mudéjar architecture, a visit to Royal Alcázar Palace is a must. You'll also want to take a walk to Plaza de España, sometimes referred to as the 'Venice of Seville'.

When it comes to historical monuments, Seville really is among the biggest champions. Did you know that Seville is home to the third-largest cathedral in the world? With this exciting sightseeing tour, you'll have a chance to visit the cathedral in person and learn about its history.

Apart from being a historic city with the stunning architecture around every corner, Seville's cultural heritage is unrivalled. If you want to get to know the real Spain, this is where you should start. Forget about Madrid or Barcelona, Andalusia is where flamenco was born and to this day it's said that Seville the best place to see a proper flamenco show.

It's also a great place for foodies and fans of Spanish cuisine. Tapas are a big thing here, so don't deny yourself this small pleasure. With all the walking you'll do along Seville's narrow streets, we think you deserve to indulge in all the flavours of Andalusia. No matter if you're in the mood for a classic tortilla de patatas or something different, with tapas you can easily have a taste of everything.
