Having visited Seville almost a year to the day on our last family adventure, we were interested to see how we’d feel about seeing the city in the day… our previous visit had started at dusk with both girls treated to a horse drawn carriage ride across Seville before opting for an evening of tapas.. but with Southern Europe being battered by storms, would we enjoy Seville as much as we had before in the pouring rain?

 

Desperate to take our bikes around this city, we sadly relented due to the unseasonal heavy rain that hammered the motorhome this morning… although we did have some fun with the ‘city bikes‘.. (read more on our biking adventures around Copenhagen – the home of the ‘city bike’ concept!) These are so easy to grab at a moments notice and are an excellent way to see a city with kids…. if you can find small bikes or have big children!!!

 

Keen to get out and explore the enchanting back streets and winding alleys… full of bright orange trees and earthy coloured buildings…. our re-visit to Seville had only one target in mind!! The famed  ‘Royal Alcazar of Seville‘ and its famed gardens and gothic inspired architecture (mixed with a little Mudéjar emphasis that we saw in Teruel & Albarracin)

But first we managed to hook up with the fantastic Banks family who have decided to head out across Europe with their young children too… almost the same ages that Lottie&Libby were when we started, their children are equally as adventurous as ours… and they certainly have energy to match ours… When we met up with them at the Alcazar, they’d already completed a drumming flamenco session, toured the cathedral and were doing the Alcazar before heading out for a night of flamenco dancing!!! That’s some day by any standards!! Great job guys!! (more on their journey to follow tomorrow)

 

Every city should have Something special

TThe Alcazar is some place, a massive royal palace built in the 1300’s… it’s well deserved UNESCO status could arguably be for it’s gardens as much as it’s amazing palace rooms! It’s not surprising that it has a resemblance to the palaces/architecture we’d seen at Cordoba (it was once a fort in the 900’s for the Cordoban Governors of Seville) The attractive series of patios, inner halls and intricately carved archways are fit for a king… in fact the royal family still actively use the top floor of the palace!

 

​TOP TIP – Visit on a Monday in the late afternoon and it’s free entry!!! Worth sticking around for we reckon!
