Our route: A 10-minute bus ride from Malága (see our post on Malága) centre to Alsa Bus terminal allows multiple possiblities to cheaply explore Spain by comfortable and reliable bus. We took the 3-hour bus to Sevilla and checked in at an apartment located in El Sevilla Arenal.
Although there is a tram along Avenida de la Constitución, it is best to explore the city the Sevillanos’ way: paseo (leisurely stroll); walk along Canal de Alfonso XIII to see the curious face on the Plaza de toros; cross over to Triana to explore little streets; find hand-painted pottery and little tapas bars with live music.
Sevilla is a vibrant city pulsating with the same energy and grace of a flamenco performance we saw at Casa de la Memoria.
The Alcazar in Seviila, built by the Moors, exemplifies Mudejar architecture. The Alcazar is still used by Spain’s royals today. We admired the beautiful tiles, the water pipe organ, and the underground swimming pool!
Tapas bars everywhere. We found the best and the least expensive at Antonio Romero. We were pleasantly surprised to see Farmacia Gaviño,” our own surname. Turron was a treat at La Campaña. We enjoyed paella and salad with baby romaine and seafood at La Salas.
It couldn’t get better.
