Seville, located in Southwestern Spain, is another Spanish city, popular with travelers. It is packed with attractions and is delightful to explore by foot. Add Seville to any trip to Spain for at least the following reasons:
1. Seville’s Cathedral is the largest in Spain, and one of the world’s biggest. It is said to house the bones of Christopher Columbus (but who knows?).
2. The Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold) was built as a watchtower to prevent enemies from entering the city by water (the Guadalquivir River).
3. Seville is famous for the uniquely Spanish dance, the Flamenco. There are a number of venues where visitors can experience performances of this local dance.
4. Wandering through the narrow streets of the Barrio Santa Cruz is a very pleasant way to spend several hours.
