Seville

We had a very full and fun day in Seville Thursday. We started in the Plaza de la Encarnación where we went up on top of the giant wood structure that the locals call the mushroom.

Underneath the giant mushroom are archaeological excavations and the remains of the Roman town.

After Butch and Myra visited the Cathedral we visited the Archives of the Indies. They are between exhibits so we only got to see the building itself.

Next we all went on a buggy ride around Seville.

It was wonderful. We saw things we hadn’t seen in our other visits to Seville. The Plaza de España was built for the 1929 world exhibition. It is colorful, big and beautiful.

Our final sightseeing stop of the day was the Royal Alcázar. It is a palace and gardens parts of which were originally built in the 10th century. This first picture is of the ceiling in the Hall of Ambassadors.

From the outside the Alcazar doesn’t seem that big but inside it is an enormous peaceful oasis. We

almost lost Butch and Duke in the maze.
