This morning started off warm and got warmer in Seville. We went straight to the cathedral after missing it yesterday.
However, on our way we stopped to buy a fan for Sherrie.
The best part of the cathedral was walking up the minaret – now bell tower – the Giralda tower. The walk up over a thousand feet was easier because the interior is a ramp rather than steps to facilitate a horse and rider.
The second best part if the cathedral was the grave of Christopher Colombus.
We then had tapas for lunch which included bacon wrapped shrimp, which were wonderful. After that we stopped in a nearby Starbucks, of which they are many, for frappuccino and cookies.
We then decided to go to the bullring since that would be cool and take a scenic route along the river and post the golden tower.
The bullring and museum were fascination and rate as one of our favourite activities – although I don’t feel I’ve read enough Hemingway to appreciate it.
After leaving the bullring we were approached by someone selling flamenco tickets. Since it was on our list we decided to do it, but the show started in one hour so we had to get to the show and stopped for a slice of pizza.
The flamenco show was at the school of flamenco I’m the Barrio Santa Cruz, the historic Jewish district. This also gave us a chance to see one of the more beautiful neighbourhoods in Seville.
We also walked through the El Arenal district.
The flamenco show was very nice and luckily for the kids, and our sanity, only lasted one hour. But, it was awesome with great dancing, guitar, and singing.
We then had a late dinner and enjoyed a much cooler weather on the way back to the hotel.
