Travel Blogs from Seville
... Catholic Church in the world, Seville Cathedral, a truly spectacular building with an amazing bell tower. We took a harbour cruise which was nice but very windy and cold.

Our last day in Granada was just so relaxed. We checked out but we were still able to use everything including showers right up until our overnight train.
