Seville has a formidable advantage compared to other large Spanish cities, and that is the fact that most of its tourist attractions are very close to each other. For this reason, our journey begins early in the morning in the Parque de María Luisa, an idyllic space for the relaxation of the Sevillians, characterized by its generous greenery.
In addition, this site is full of interesting symbols that combine history and art. There we can see numerous roundabouts and small fountains, several of them dedicated to historical figures, such as Dante, Bécquer and the Álvarez Quintero brothers. These places are almost fairytale, and stand out for the painstaking detail of their sculptures. Likewise, the park is divided into several sectors, which makes it a kind of micro-city.
It is common to associate Seville postcards with the Plaza de España. In fact, it can be said that this is the main icon of the city. However, if you’ve ever looked at those images, we guarantee that being there in person will change your perception completely.
In this case, our walk can go directly from the María Luisa Park to the Plaza de España, since both sites are adjacent. Once there, we can appreciate its immense esplanade, which is communicated by a walk with the Guadalquivir river. At the same time, the square is surrounded by two majestic towers, one to the north and one to the south.
Similarly, you may have a spare time to rent a barge and take a walk on the canals around the square. Likewise, we guarantee that many of the best photos you can take in Seville will be precisely in this square.
Our one-day tour of Seville could not be complete without a visit to the Real Alcázar. This monumental medieval palace will transport us to bygone times as we walk through its bedrooms, balconies, arches and doors, as well as its beautiful gardens, which are one of its greatest attractions.
On the other hand, in this building we will know vestiges of different stages of the history of Spain, such as Roman, Muslim and Christian. Therefore, for lovers of these themes, the place will be more than ideal.
As we leave the monument, we will be free to lose ourselves in the narrow streets of the historic center of Seville, and come across other interesting places during our walk, such as the Patio de las Banderas or the Plaza del Triunfo.
Likewise, it will not hurt us to have a drink to pass the Sevillian heat, accompanied by a good tapa, which is abundant in this city. In conclusion, if a day is spent in Seville on your agenda, or you are connecting for several hours before leaving for another destination, the wonderful places of this city are waiting for you.
