Over 2,200 years Seville has built up an eclectic history of conquests, rulers, and clashing cultures. As this free tour takes you through the narrow streets of Santa Cruz, it takes you back, through Christian, Muslim, Roman and even Phoenician cultures.
Free tour of Sevilla
Leaving from the Church of El Divino Salvador, over two and a half hours this tour takes you back in time: through its golden age as imperial Spain's major entrepôt, the medinas of Muslim Seville, and the dusty streets pounded by the sandals of Roman legionaries.
Seville today mixes its eclectic past with a healthy dose of modernity, being one of the largest cities in Spain, and home to world-famous cultural exports such as flamenco. The free tour will take in sights such as the Royal Tobacco Factory (built in a renaissance style it is surely one of the most beautiful factories you could hope to see, inspiring the famous opera 'Carmen') the bust of 'Cruel’ King Peter (an effigy he erected of himself, but why?), the La Giralda bell tower (symbol of Seville) and the remains of the Roman Temple (where statues of Julius Caesar and Hercules top two columns from the era).
Seville is a vibrant, pulsing city, and as well as such rich history you'll see the contemporary art, food, and design which sets the city apart today: all hand in hand with an expert guide who will leave no stone unturned in showing you the very best of the Andalusian capital.
