A tour of Seville includes long walks in the maze of streets of Barrio San Bartolomè and the Barrio de Santa Cruz, in Moorish style, with white and yellow houses and patios decorated with typical azulejos.
It is in the historical center that you will found the main monuments such as the Cathedral, which preserves the monumental tomb of Christopher Columbus and the Tower of the Giralda, respectively a mosque and a minaret at the time of the Arab domination.
Even the Alcazares, the royal palaces wanted by the Moors are located in the Barrio and are a jewel of Mudejar art. You will be amazed at the beauty of the gardens, patios, fountains and preciously decorated interiors.
