Good news is I survived the city bike tour! Carlos, my guide did a pretty good job in explaining the history of Seville. My golden question to him was why is there so many cathedrals in Spain. So, back in the day, rich people built cathedrals for blessings hence, you’d see cathedrals at the end of most streets – I’m not joking, maybe I’m exaggerating a little. I got to know about Andalucia Bike Tour from Trip Advisor. I would highly recommend it. I added a Tapas tour as well, and this totalled up to 35 euros (20 euros for the bike tour). The tour is available in Dutch, Spanish and English. Oh, and it is about 2.5 hours – your bum would definitely bruise a little.

On the bike! The building behind was used as a military school.

The bridge that was built by the architect of Eiffel Tower. It links up Seville city to Triana. Apparently, the people of Triana regard themselves separate from Seville.

Spotted a sculpture of the famous bull fighter on my tour. Can you see the Giralda Tower? That’s intentional by the way, I asked.

Happy face on the bridge.

Plaza Espana... One of the best ones I've seen thus far!

Visited Alcazar today. I have to admit that this is one of my favourite historic places in Spain (or, the world!) I love the mix of artistic styles of Europe that you can find in this palace from Mudejar, Renaissance, Gothic… you name it. I spent nearly 3 hours there!

Can you see the stones emerging from the walls? This symbolizes the co-existence between architecture and nature.

To get from Madrid to Seville, take the train to Seville – Sant Justa. It costs about 68 euros and takes about 2.5 hours. Easy peasy! Next, heading to Cordoba for 2 nights.
