Seville is one of my favourite cities in the world. I first visited back on 1996 as a schoolgirl on an exchange programme. This time, I stayed in a hotel close to the Plaza De Espana. This was to help with my mobility issues. We booked into Hotel Pasarela for three nights. The beauty of this location was that it was also close to the trams which we used frequently and the metro once.
Our first night there was an festival held in the parque Prado de San Sebastian. There was a Ferris wheel, ice skating rink, I settled for some candy floss and just enjoyed the experience.
We then walked to the Plaza De Espana and it was pretty busy even though it was night time. The next day, we took the tram to visit the Setas De Espana, the mushrooms as they are called. This is a sculptural wooden structure with an archaeological museum, rooftop walkway & viewpoint. This has been opened in Seville since 2011, and I always wanted to visit. We took the lift to the first walkway and then you walk up further steps to get further upstairs for more of a view. I could not do this, and my husband continued and met me after he came back downstairs.
The next day we went back on the tram to visit the cathedral with the Giralda bell tower and Real Alcazaba Palace. We visited the palace and walked around the gardens. I remember a nicer experience when I was there previously.
Seville was lovely to return too. I hope that I get the opportunity to return here. It still is one of my favourite places in the world. I think it always will be.
