SEVILLE SHORE EXCURSIONS FROM CADIZ PORT
Departing from the port of Cadiz, we will drive towards the city Seville (the trip will take about an hour and a half), the capital and the largest city in Andalusia, and the soul of the region and the incarnation of the famous Andalusian way of life.
*Shore excursions could be subject to variations due to external causes as Cruise Companies politics, weather conditions, duration of the stay of the ship in the port, legal demonstrations
We will start our walking tour with a visit (external) of the majestic Cathedral of Seville, one of the largest and most important religious buildings in Spain and across Europe in general. We will continue our tour walking through the Barrio de Santa Cruz, one of the most popular and visited of the city, and we will admire the exterior of the Archivo General de Indias ("General Archive of the Indies"), a depository of historical documents that illustrate the Spanish Empire in the Americas and in the Philippines, arriving close the Real Alcázar (external visit), one of the most magnificent buildings of the city of Seville, so that it was often chosen as the residence of the Spanish rulers. We will proceede towards Plaza Nueva, where stands the Town Hall, and we will continue towards La Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla, better known as La Maestranza (external visit), the oldest bullring in the whole Spain.
Then we will continue our walking tour along the banks of the Guadalquivir, thus arriving at the Gold Tower (Torre del Oro), built in the first half of the thirteenth by the Arabs who at that time dominated the city. We will proceede through Plaza de España, and along the street we will admire the Royal Tobacco Factory, a magnificent building, an example of the industrial architecture of the eighteenth century and now seat of the rectorate of the University of Seville and some faculty.
Once in the Plaza de España we will admire one of the architectural open spaces among the most beautiful and spectacular in the Andalusian city of Spain, as it offers the representations of each of the ancient kingdoms in Spain and each of the forty-eight provinces in Spain.
We will then conclude our shore excursion with the visit of the Maria Luisa Park, a public garden in Seville, the most famous of the city. Here we will wait for our bus to take us back to the port of Cadiz for boarding.
