Seville is a theatrical and festive place that was Spains most important city during the glorious Golden Age of exploration and conquest. Our city tour begins in the worlds largest gothic cathedral. Here we visit the famous Orange-tree Court, the Gate of Absolution, the Royal Chapel, the Sacristy, and the final resting-place of Christopher Columbus. The Giralda, the tall minaret of the former Muslim mosque that previously stood on this hallowed ground, awaits those energetic people willing to climb it, with the reward of a breathtaking view of the city below. We continue with a visit to the Reales Alcazar where we will admire the beautiful Mudejar architecture (Muslims artisans working for the Christian kings). Pedro I in 1364 ordered the construction of a royal residence within the palace that had been built by the citys Almohad rulers. Within two years, craftsmen from Granada and Toledo created a jewel box of Mudejar patios and halls.
