I spent this last weekend in Seville, the capital of Andalusia, and the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. I have to say that been 22, Spanish, and not having been to Seville is like a deadly sin. That is why Miguel and I decided to spend the weekend there, at Eduardo's apartment (Edu is Miguel's friend).
We did many things, but there are 3 landmarks I liked above any other: the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, the Royal Alcazars of Seville and the neighbourhood of Santa Cruz. Apart from these 3 places, there are other wonderful places in Sevilla: General Archive of the Indies, Guadalquivir River or Triana.
We walked a lot, but we also ate in great bares and we even attended a social meeting with some high class students. This weekend Sevilla Football Club was playing the final of the Spanish Cup, and they won the match against Getafe. We watched the game at Edu's friend's, who has a penthouse next to Guadalquivir river, in front of Triana neighborhood. I love feeling rich, and I felt rich hahaha.
Here you have some pictures of our first day in Seville. I hope I will get the pictures from the other 3 days
