Enjoy a fully guided three hour tour of the historic Santa Cruz district of Seville, departing directly from your hotel! Your guide will meet you in your hotel lobby and take you through the Alcazar and Cathedral with priority access – both designated UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Begin with a scenic tour of the charming neighbourhood of Santa Cruz, a wonderful maze of cobbled streets, where you can soak up the relaxed atmosphere of sunny Seville. Wander along lanes lined with crafts and souvenir shops, delicious restaurants, tapas and wine bars, with lots of live music and Flamenco! Santa Cruz is also home to the famous Alcazar, the incredible Renaissance-Moorish royal palace and Seville’s magnificent Gothic cathedral. Your tour includes skip the line tickets to both these amazing attractions:
The Alcazar complex has over 1000 years of history and is the oldest working palace in Europe. The Spanish royals often use the upper apartments when visiting. Scenes of Game of Thrones series 5 and 6 were filmed in the castle and the beautiful gardens with the many water features. The Castle was built first as a Moorish fortress in the 11th century, and later rebuilt by the Christian King Peter in 1248. Today you will see its eclectic mix of architectural styles including Gothic, Mudejar and Renaissance. A truly special experience to wander through its shady courtyards and hallowed halls.
The majestic Seville Cathedral adjoins the royal complex and was created to demonstrate the wealth and power of Seville during the Renaissance. It is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world, and was constructed between 1401 and 1506 on top of the pre-existing mosque. You’ll explore the vast interior, famous for its long nave, and many chapels. It is the burial place of many Spanish royals – and many famous Spanish heroes, not least the (Italian) explorer Christopher Columbus! Then take a leisurely climb to the top of Giraldo Tower (105 metres tall, which was formerly the minaret of the mosque) which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. Get up close with the massive bells at the top, and enjoy a fantastic view of the city with your guide. Your tour ends inside the cathedral.
