... to use for Weapons. In the Counting room, the room which was formerly used for administrative purposes, is displaced Mary’s crown with the second largest pearl in the world.
Which was actually not that big at all. Leading towards the courtyard there was a wooden alligator on the wall which represents a present from the Egyptian pharaoh in order to gain the hand of marriage of a Spanish princess. The Giralda tower was ...
... but I ended up being the only english speaker on the entire time slot!! There was a group of 5 others at the start but they left!! So it was yet another chance to immerse myself in Spanish again and try, try, try ;) The horse show was interesting but also I felt sad as they used the crop in what seemed an excessive amount (they tried to assure me it doesn't hurt, but why does the horse flinch?). But the dancing was nice. The sherry was tasty...the dry sherry ...
... than its decoration) but it was absolutely crammed with other tourists and with huge tour groups - it's easily the most crowded church I've ever been to. The bell tower design was awesome - it was built by the Moors in a way that would allow a rider on horseback to ascend to the top to perform the call to prayer, which for us modern-day tourists means an easy walk up ramps with no stairs (until you get up to the top levels, which were added after the cathedral was taken back by ...

Well, that's all for now - we've slipped right into the lifestyle - getting up late and eating late. It's light until 9 o'clock so we can still walk and see the sights after dinner.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Anfiteatro Romano Seville
We only have good things to say about this hotel... we got in at 2am and the restaraunt still served us food after a long train ride & bus ride in. Beware that any spot in Santiponce is about a 15 - 20 minute bus ride to Seville, but once you get it all sorted with the timetables, it's not too difficult to get around... we got it by the second trip back and forth.
Our room was very clean and comfortable. The wireless worked pretty well in the room, but it was better downstairs.
ps. if you want to watch tv in spain and you don't speak english, bring a laptop... the tv was null of english, but that's okay, it got us outside that much more:)
We would definitely stay here again, DEFINITELY!
