NOT TO BE MISSED
TORRE DEL ORO
Built in 1220, it is called Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold) because, in ancient times, it seems to have been covered with golden tiles. Originally a military watchtower, it became a prison and today houses the Museum of the Sea.
The marvelous Gothic Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the third-largest church in the world, stands on the ruins of the Great Mosque, of which the minaret known as the Giralda remains.
Strolling through the narrow streets that run through this district like small rivers, you can admire Seville's historical and artistic wonders, intoxicated by the scent of orange blossom, characteristic of the city.
It is the oldest Spanish bullring and is worth a visit regardless of your opinion on bullfighting: it is an example of the triumph of elegance and sumptuousness, history, architecture and tradition.
