The Cathedral and The Giralda. www.catedraldesevilla.es
This is the largest gothic cathedral in the world, built between 1401 and 1519, after the Catholic reconquest on the remains of a large mosque dating from the 12th century, with the minaret turned into a tower, the Giralda. Inside the impressive Cathedral you will find the tomb of Christopher Columbus, containing what are believed to be his mortal remains.

The Alcazar. www.patronato-alcazarsevilla.es
It is located opposite the Cathedral and is the ancient Arab palace-fortress, home to the Moorish rulers, with beautiful gardens, inner patios, fountains and palaces. Works begun in 1181 and went on continuously for more than 500 years, creating a structure that blends Arabic and Renaissance styles.

El Barrio de Santa Cruz. Is perhaps the most characteristic neighborhood of Seville, and was the old Jewish quarter. You’ll be impressed by its narrow streets, the elegant squares, the bars and restaurants and the festive atmosphere that pervades el Barrio especially at night when the neighborhood comes alive with tourists and locals.

Plaza de España. It's an amazing and bizarre square, built in 1929 by architect Anibal Gonzalez for the Ibero American Expo. It houses a sumptuous palace now home to municipal offices.

El Parque Maria Luisa. It's a big park in front of Plaza de España. It's the ideal place to disconnect from the city buzz, with its shaded paths and ponds.

Italica. Just 9 Km north of Seville, outside the village of Santiponce, lies the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Italica, founded in 206 BC. You will see one of the largest Roman amphitheaters, built to accommodate as many as 25,000 people.
