[Editor’s Note] Today we have a guest post with a wonderfully detailed itinerary for a Spanish city I have yet to visit, Madrid. After reading Michael’s post, it is definitely on my ‘must visit’ list.
With swirling Flamenco dresses, colourful mosaic tiles, internationally themed architecture and vibrant gardens, Seville, Spain is a photographer’s paradise. Today we share 10 of our favourite photos from this inspiring city.
We’re suckers for a great view and, in Seville, Spain, the best one was from the top of the Giralda, at the Cathedral of Seville.
The final Moorish palace of our travels in Andalusia was the Real Alcázar of Seville. Just when we thought we were ‘palaced out’, we realised we saved a great one for last.
I had admired the photo in dozens of travel books – row upon row of columns topped with chequered arches. Shadow and light playing with each other as people stand, dwarfed under the soaring ceilings. Before I even knew where it was, I knew I had to visit the Cathedral-Mosque of Córdoba, Spain.
The first overnight stop on our road-trip through Andalusia was in the small but historically rich city of Ronda, Spain. Ronda is famously cut in half by the Guadalevín River, which carved out the El Tajo canyon. Ronda’s Old Town is precariously perched on the cliffs of the 100-metre canyon and is the perfect stopping place on a tour of the Pueblo Blancos of Andalusia, Spain.
