A Beautiful City

Well it feels a little chilly after the beautiful sun of Seville.  It was a lovely city break and we loved it.  It has Moorish Architecture, beautiful gardens and Palaces.
I will just give you a little feel of this beautiful city.

This was the name of our hotel a beautiful small hotel, very stylish and definitely one I would recommend, Casa No 7
I know this is difficult to see but they had these annoying bars, but the colours of the flamenco costumes were stunning!

This is the Alcazar a beautiful Palace, I could bore you to death with lots of photos but I think these just capture the Palace.  It is also a place where I think brides can come and have their photos taken and I managed to capture this one, it is so lovely that they base their wedding dresses on the traditional flamenco dress.

An elegant guest with the lovely headdress!

This is the Place to Espana, the tiles where just spectacular.Then in contrast one evening we came across this Architectural monster, they call it the Mushroom, not too sure what it was all about as was not in the guide books, but looked amazing against the night-time skyline.
 Pastries to die for!
I love these lanterns
I came across this vintage shop and loved this little chair
We also visited Casa de Pilatos yes named after Pontius Pilate as the palace is inspired by his Palace in Jerusalem!

the colour of these walls so warm and sunny
and these tiles were so beautiful.
Well we are home now and Autumn seems to be creeping in this evening I can't see out of the window because we are shrouded in mist, perhaps tomorrow will be sunny. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.


  1. Welcome home Jill, looks like you had a wonderful trip. My husband went to Seville but it was on a day trip and when we got there it was Siesta time and all the shops were shut, but we saw enough to want to come again. It's getting very autumnal here now. Have a lovely weekend, love Linda x

  2. Dear Jill,

    Seville looks AMAZING and you show some lovely photos that really show the diverse character and beauty of the place. The tiles, oh my word, those tiles!!! Mmmm, I like... And the fourth photo there, with the almost religious light at the end of the green tunnel - wow, what a photo!

    Lots of love from Wiltshire to Devon!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful photos of your holiday. Just beautiful.

  5. What a wonderful place. I'm glad you had a good time. The 'mushroom' is unusual and quite modern but I like it. I also love all the pretty geometric tiling and intricate metalwork on the lamps.

  6. Hi Jill!
