Love at First Sight: Sevilla

Love at First Sight: Sevilla

Of all the cities I have had the opportunity to visit, none have moved me as Sevilla has. Stepping out into the city was like stepping into a Floridian-Spanish dream. Cars zipped down streets studded with palm trees only to make sweeping turns through roundabouts encircling fountains and statues. Parts of the city are older and others more modern. In the same day you can go shopping at a seven story Corté Ingles and walk through the cathedral where Christopher Columbus is said to be buried. Being the capital of Andalucía, the restaurant and bar selection is plentiful and varied to keep up with the large number of people living in Sevilla.

I got to see so little of this city, but it was enough to make me fall hard. Perhaps this was a bit naïve of me, as you should really get to know all aspects of a city (and a person) before you go professing any sort of love. Anyways, for those travelers interested, here is a video that quickly focuses on the top three attractions of Sevilla: La Catedral, La Alcázar and Plaza de España.
