Seville is one of the most-visited towns in Spain with car hire, and it is quite obvious why; the architecture is remarkable, sporting heavy Moorish and gothic influences with a touch of orient. The Old Town is a maze of small alleys in which one can easily get lost in your car hire, fortunately shaded squares offer plenty of opportunity to rest.
The most important landmark is Catedral de Santa María de la Sede, built between 1401 and 1519. It is the third biggest Christian cathedral after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and St. Paul’s in London. The building is 115 m long and 76 m wide, divided into five aisles, the middle one being a stunning 42 m high. Thousands of visitors come to see the cathedral every year, some simply to pay respects to Christopher Columbus who was laid to final rest inside the cathedral in 1902.
Another notable building is just within close reach of the cathedral: the Alcazar. Construction of this royal palace was started in the Middle Ages under Moorish rule, though during the following centuries it was altered, extended, and remodeled, adding oriental, gothic, and renaissance elements. The palace is surrounded by the royal gardens, a place of absolute tranquility right in the city.
Seville has a great number of fantastic museums. One of the best is Museo de Bellas Artes, exhibiting art from the gothic era to the 20th century in fourteen rooms, each one focusing on a different style or artist. The museum is located on Plaza del Museo which can be easily reached in your car hire.
After a long day of exploring the city you might want to relax a little, and the perfect place to do so is no. 15 Calle Aire. In the Arab baths you can leave the heat of the day behind and recharge your batteries with a cup of exotic hot beverage in the Teteria tea bar.
