Sevilla is the capital of Andalusia, Seville is a truly beautiful city with a rich, cultural heritage. The city centre is a maze of old, narrow streets with the most sights within easy walking distance. There are many magnificent buildings to be seen here: the massive cathedral and the Moorish Alcazar Palace, one of the finest art museums in Spain, the Mueso de Bellas Artes, and the exquisite Renaissance Palace of Casa de Pilatos. There is also the fascinating Barrio de Santa Cruz with it's winding streets, hidden patios and numerous tapas bars, as well as the famous old Jewish quarter of Santa de Cruz. Seville in the summer can be extremely hot so it is wise to make an early start to your sightseeing before the afternoon sun is at it's highest.
