Seville – A short break in pictures

At 6pm in Seville the temperature had just peaked at 31 degrees centigrade.
Tapas bars were slowly coming to life after the lull of siesta time, although the city wouldn’t truly start moving for at least a couple of hours.
This Andalusian beauty has something for everyone: brilliant architecture, fantastic food, relaxing gardens, spectacular views and even a taste of Star Wars.
Michelle and I visited this Spanish stunner for a whistle-stop two day city break last week, taking in the sites with the help of our ‘guide’ Leo – author of the hilariously funny and downright dangerous Doggy’s Style.
From the famous cathedral to the stunning gardens of the Royal Alcazar, from the mushrooms which give you the best views of the city to orange wine and tapas, from the impressive Plaza De Espana, aka Naboo, to the opinion dividing bull ring, Seville is packed with attractions.
Over the next few days I will be going into a bit more detail on some aspects of our trip – but today I wanted to share some of Michelle Lewis‘ pictures of Seville in this photo essay.
