As planned today we wanted to visit Seville and so took a walk into town to the bus stop where the bus ran into Seville every 30 minutes for a very reasonable €1.70 each for the 12 km journey. The bus stop in Seville was at the rear of Plaza Espana, as we got off the bus another British passenger said ‘Don’t be put off by the back of the plaza make sure you go round to the front’. So we took him at his word and were amazed at what we saw once we walked around to the front of the plaza.

We then took a 45 minute ride around Seville on one of the many horse and carriages that were available for hire, €45 for a 45 minute trip for four of us was very reasonable. We saw all the important buildings and received information about each of them from the carriage driver. After the ride we walked into the centre of town and found a restaurant that Mike and Sue had been to before for a snack lunch that was excellent. After lunch we continued our exploration of Seville, booked for a Flamenco show for the following day and also a late lunch at a restaurant. With all the walking we were pretty exhausted and so took the bus back to the campsite, it dropped us right to the door so that was good for the tired legs.
