The Views from La Giralda in Sevilla

I was going to do a post on La Giralda and the Sevilla Cathedral, but I have a lot of photos of the latter, so will do that another time.

Anyhoo, as I said in my last post, you can climb to the top of La Giralda. The first thing I saw was the tops of the Cathedral buildings:

This is the Patio de los Naranjos or Orange Tree Courtyard. The fountain at the bottom of the photo is from the Visigoth period.
Seville oranges are extremely tart and used to make marmalade. It was weird to see oranges that no one eats.

It’s been a few years now, but I believe those spires are part of the Plaza de España.

The Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla. Otherwise known as a bullring. Something I will never do is go to a bullfight.

I remember wanting to jump into that pool!

Zooming in, you can see The Plaza de Virgen de los Reyes.

You can go for a ride on the Plaza. We decided to do more sightseeing instead.

Great weekend, everyone!

    I had such a good time in Sevilla. It’s such a beautiful city. You captured it so well.

    • Thanks, Caroline. We liked Sevilla, but I think Madrid was our favorite. Our hotel was too far away from the main sights, so that got a little old and probably colored our view of Sevilla. We did a lot of walking, that’s for sure. 🙂

  5. Stunning views of the city! The roof of the cathedral is really interesting. From this angle it almost seems to be made of fabric. I hope to get to Seville someday.
