Begin this scenic walking tour exploring the capital of the self-governing region of Andalusia and witness the architectural influences of the Arabs, Romans and Jews that have shaped the city as you stroll through Seville and pass by places like Paseo de Colon, Avenida de Palermas and the Maria Luisa Park, which is home to the Plaza de Americas and rests on the banks of the Guadalquivir River--Spain's only navigational river that splits Seville into the neighborhoods of Triana and Sevilla. While in the park, you'll also get a chance to take pictures and observe the rich architectural complex of the Plaza de Espana, where you'll find artistic benches that showcase emblematic etchings of Spain's provinces as well as witness architectural beauty that combines elements of the Moorish, Baroque and Renaissance revivals that characterize its iconic building. Journey to the city center to explore the beautiful landscapes of the Jardines de Murillo (Gardens of Murillo), where you'll view an enchanting setting dotted with decades-old magnolia trees, paved walkways, tiled benches, a majestic fountain, and iconic arbors.
Continue your tour wandering through the narrow, winding streets of Barillo de Santa Cruz--Seville's Jewish Quarter. Take in the pleasing aromas of its jasmine-scented winding streets as you stroll through passing by wrought-iron gated homes, art galleries, and artisanal shops. Next, you'll head to the world's largest Gothic church and third largest Catholic Church--the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cathedral of Seville. Here, you'll find La Giralda--the iconic cathedral bell tower that reaches over 97 meters (318 feet) tall and offers panoramic views of Seville from the top of the tower.
Wrap up your tour by taking time to have lunch sampling tapas and local cuisine on your own before meeting at the rendezvous point of Torre del Oro--a tower built in the 13th century. This iconic monument is hard to miss as it gives off a golden aurora when the sun reflects on in it, which explains why many believed for your years the tower's top was made of gold. After meeting your guide and group at Torre del Oro, you'll take a comfortable coach ride back to Malaga along the same scenic route you explored to reflect on your cultural journey through the historic capital of Seville.
