Seville City - Guest Photo Blog

the ambience of Seville: a photo blog

by Michael Barbatulus

I've been already been to Spain many times and visited different places. I love travelling and taking photos, exploring paths in old towns, finding beautiful hidden places and, at the end of a long day, trying lovely local food.

I knew Sevilla was a beautiful city, but my four-day trip exceeded all my expectations. It is a real jewel of Andalusia, the southern part of Spain. I've never seen such a picturesque city full of colours, scents, tastes to experience on never-ending strolls around the historic quarter. These photos give you a little hint of what you can expect. My advice: after visiting all of the main sights, walk through the quieter streets of the old areas on both sides of river, always using different routes and explore. You will be richly rewarded!
