After the events from the Christmas party, a hearty breakfast was needed alongside plenty of napping. Once I’d finally recovered, I hurried out of the hotel to explore the city at last.
First stop another peek inside the Cathedral.
Next stop the Moorish palace of Alcazar. An impressive palace with Arabic arches and carved walls with stucco relief.
As you wonder through the rooms there is a dramatic contrast.
After soaking in the rich details in the palace, I headed to the Metropol Parasol. A huge wooden structure made up of six parasols that resemble a field of mushrooms. It was designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann and completed in April 2011. It offers spectacular views of the city and stands as a huge contrast against the ancient architecture that surrounds Seville.
I climbed on top of the mushrooms, sat on top with a beer soaking in the view and watching the sunset.
The long trip down below.
Walking on top felt like travelling through a rickety roller coaster.
We ventured to a bar for sangria and tapas before watching a traditional Flamenco show.
The Flamenco show was full of passion, which was displayed in the performers intense expressions. One performer played Spanish folk music with a guitar and another sang. The lady performer elegantly danced, dressed in a traditional flamenco outfit and added an extra beat with super fast handclaps.
