Sevilla

2'15 mins Although further away, Seville is worth the effort! La Giralda & Catedral is the city's landmark building and the world's largest Gothic church, whose soaring minaret - now the bell tower - is wide enough for two horsemen to ride to the top! The Alcazar is a Moorish fortress-palace adorned with breathtakingly beautiful stuccowork, tiles and coffered ceilings within, and relaxing gardens without. The city that invented tapas has some of Spain's very best bars to sample them. The solemn pomp and pagan ecstasy of the Semana Santa (Easter Holy Week) processions are the most impressive and moving in Spain. The April Feria is another unique spectacle!
