It was the most wonderful trip. We toured the Seville Cathedral where Christopher Columbus is buried. We dined alfresco in street cafes. We saw the Roman ruins of the city of Italica. We ate tapas and listened to Mariachi bands. We strolled through Maria Luisa Park and smelled the orange tree blossoms. I swooned over the architecture and tile at the Plaza de Espana. It was amazing.

There was beautiful tile work everywhere including the bridge.
Seville is known for its ceramics. I had the opportunity to visit several tile and plate manufacturers in the section of the city called Triana. I picked up a few plates to add to the dining room plate gallery.
It really was a trip of a lifetime and I feel blessed to have been able to visit Seville.
