SPAIN: SEVILLA ~ Seeing the Sights
We've already been to Antequera and Osuna, Spain today, and now we've finally made it to Sevilla. My main reason for coming here is to see the Plaza de España, but that deserves a separate post entirely to itself...coming soon!
We've actually parked the car right by the Plaza de España, but I wanted to save the best for last, so off we go to wander a bit.
SEVILLA ~ SPAIN
If there ever was a city to get lost in, this is the one. Sevilla's mix of mazes of streets opening up onto expansive parks and charming plazas makes meandering about easy. While the city is walkable, and you may be good with map - embrace the fact that you'll lose your way at some point... like we did.
Our wanderings take us through Parque del Prado de San Sebastián, across Jardines de Murillo, through many cute plazas to the Catedral de Sevilla and La Giralda.

Parque Prado de San Sebastián - not so empty once we turn a corner
Not sure what the occasion is today, but there's tons of stalls selling all kinds of goodness
All this.....smells divine!
Don't know what this is, but I want some
Too good to pass up - seems I'll be walking around Sevilla with all kinds of meat in my purse

Checking out some art stuffs
Tourist trap souvenirs, but still pretty to look at
Kind of lost track of where we are, but this looks like a good bench to take a break on
The child keeps begging to do these Segway things, but I don't want to be the a**hole that blocks all these narrow streets with them
