Instagrammable Seville

Plaza de España

After the Cathedral, Plaza de España is one of the most beautiful structures in Seville, and during your visit, you must have to go there.
This photo I think was the most amazing one made by us, we think it is even better than the one we did for our post on Instagrammable Lisbon, Instagrammable Malaga, the best photo spots in Paris, and Instagrammable Rome.

We have spent raffle half an hour to organize it and to make sure there was no one passing by the camera. It was taken in a really busy time, but we were waiting for the perfect light. Some bad shot, too late, too slow or too fast, but we did it and the photo looks literally amazing!

It’s normal when you want to have a nice pic you have to sweat a bit, it was really warm, over 25 degrees for sure. In Plaza de Espana everywhere is amazing to take a picture, especially if you want to remember your Instagrammable Seville.

Once you will reach this place you will find around this huge square a small river, here you can rent a boat and be a bit romantic with your partner.
More then romantic it will be funny, I don’t think everyone can row.

Plaza de España must be one of the ten things to do in Seville as it is an incredible piazza, full of energy, magic and colours.

All our friends were suggesting us to go and see the “Alhambra” in Granada, but unfortunately, there were no tickets available. We decided to enjoy instead of the Real Alcazaba of Seville. 

The Real Alcazaba of Seville is amazing and needs to be in your top list of Instagrammable places in Seville.

A style almost the same, with the main influence of Arabic culture. Obviously is not the same.

You will find even a discount booking online. The ticket is not expensive it’s only 9 euro and 50 cents. For those under 16 years old the access is free and for the student between 17 and 25, the ticket is just 2 euro.

TIP: If you want some particulars posture, try to wear something with colours as Alessia did.
It wasn’t on purpose but if we are thinking about it now it does make sense. Everything in Seville is with colours, seems like a city who really lives. Sounds crazy but true.

Plaza de Toros

Oleee!!! We have been in Plaza de Toros in Seville and in Malaga. The one in Seville is the most amazing one for us. Could you believe it? Even from outside everything seems new and curated.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time so we lost the tour from inside, but we peek a bit and we remained speechless, without even one word, shocked by the beauty.

We know somebody can say it is cruel to kill animals just for fun, but hey we are talking about the structure, it is really amazing and old fashioned.
