Seville City - Spring Photo Blog

Spring in Seville: a photo blog

by Sophie Carefull

This collection of images represents my first photographic impressions of Seville, the capital city of Andalucia, taken on a recent visit.

Spring is a great time of year to explore Seville, as the grand architecture looks even more stunningly impressive against clear blue skies, surrounded by orange trees covered with blossom. From the vast Plaza de España, located in Maria Luisa Park, to the beautiful Alcázar palace and gardens, there are enough historic attractions to keep you busy for weeks. However, if you only have a day or two to discover Seville, you can still take in the main gems of the city. Here are my highlights from a sunny weekend in March:
