The most beautiful building can also be found in Santa Cruz: La Giralda. This 100 meter high building from the twelfth century is built in the Moorish style. Adjacent to the cathedral you will find Santa María de la Sede, the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. Keep in mind that you can enter the cathedral fairly limited. Services are still being held.

The Macarena acquires a slightly different meaning in Seville than we might be used to. This is a bustling neighborhood with great nightlife, markets and shops. You will also come across different monasteries and churches in the narrow streets. It is not surprising that you immediately wanted to sing “HEY MACARENA” by hearing the word Macarena, because this song, known by almost everyone, is based on a former resident of this neighborhood! Keep in mind that Seville is not only seen as the most beautiful city in Spain, but also as the hottest. And that is a fact! During summer people take it easy during the day and show up on the streets and terraces.
In addition to tapas, flamenco is also a phenomenon that stems from Seville. This means there are still many flamenco shows you can attend! Especially in Casa de la Memoria many shows are being held, sometimes even 3 per evening. During the day you can visit the venue, it then serves as a flamenco museum.
