A scenic drive through Andalusia’s cork plantations brings you to Seville—Spain’s fourth-largest city. Your walking tour begins with an inside visit at Seville’s cathedral—the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Sea. Next, you will spend time in the magnificent Alcazar, a monument to the Moorish occupation of Spain, surrounded by glorious gardens. Following an in-depth walking tour around the old Jewish Quarter, lunch is served buffet-style at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, a panoramic drive will show you the new and cosmopolitan part of Seville. The Torre del Oro and La Giralda Tower are seen on this part of the tour.
The Alcazar is the official residence of the King of Spain when he is in Seville and it is subject to closure at any time, in which case Casa Pilatos will be substituted. Travel time to Seville is approximately 1½ hours each way. The cathedral is closed on Sundays; you will view it from the outside and a visit to Casa Pilatos will be substituted.
