Seville by a local Architect
Half Day Private Tour
A three-hour walking exploration with a Historical Heritage expert!
An open-air private urban journey through the city's rich heritage, to admire famous and less known architectural gems.
I designed this walk to get Seville's whole picture by focusing on the exterior and visiting various neighbourhoods through their alleyways while passing by some of the most iconic facades.
Having lived in many parts of the city gave me a greater insight of the different identities of these quarters. This is what I share with you to savor; key districts with different styles that shaped the urban landscape (Roman, Moorish, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, Baroque, Eclecticism & Regionalism). Latest contemporary additions will capture our interest as well; such as the stop at the Mushrooms (Setas).
But Seville also bears treasures of landscape architecture that can't be missed such as the Maria Luisa Park & the Guadalquivir riverfront. A series of historic squares such as the Plaza de España will captivate us as well!
