Sevilla is a nice and beautiful city. The most interesting in Spain after Barcelona. One of those cities where one day is not enough for a city tour. Old town of Seville is just huge, I can not imagine how not to get lost there. We lived in the old town, in the Apartamentos Las Cruces (booking.com). Recommended if you are 4 people, as apartment has very good location, the price is 90 euros per night, 100 meters to underground parking, 300 meters to Cathedral. We lived in this yard.

Interesting facts about Seville:
  - according to legend, the city was founded by Hercules
  - is the hottest city in Spain, do not visit it in summer
  - Christopher Columbus is buried in the Cathedral of Seville (or maybe his son)

There is no one major tourist attraction in the Seville. The city itself is an attraction, believe me. Before the trip we have defined a few must visit places. At first we walked around the old town, it is incredibly confusing, be sure to have a good map.

In 20 meters from the cathedral is the entrance to the Royal Alcazar, a former Moorish palace. Read about the Moors in the general article about Spain. The upper chambers of the Alcázar are now used as the official residence of the Spanish royal family. The place is popular with tourists, so we bought tickets in advance online here.

Next we came to the square of Spain, which was built for an exhibition in 1929. Perhaps it is the most beautiful square of ​​the country. Now here is the town hall. You could see it in movies such as Lawrence of Arabia (video, 1962), Star Wars 1: The Phantom Menace (1999), Star Wars 2: Attack of the Clones (video, 2002), Dictator (video, 2012).
