    Sevilha

    August 15, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Após nosso usual café da manha na van, pegamos o onibus para o centro de Sevilha. Era feriado e demorou muito, mas chegamos em tempo de nossa visita ao Real Alcazar, um conjuntos dr palacios e jardins muito bonitos, utilizamos em Game of Throne como Dorne. A visita é cheia de gente, e o sol de 40°C da Espanha nao ajudou, mas conseguimos conhecer todos os palacios.
    Na sequencia fomos até a catedral que fica ao lado do Alcazar, mas o calor, o cansaço e os 9 euros por pessoa para entrar nos afastaram.
    Decidimos ir a Plaza Espana e descansamos sob a sombra de uma árvore antes de entrar na praça, que serviu de set de filmagem para Naboo, no Ataque dos Clones. A praça é realmente muito bonita, e foi construida em um ano para a feira ibero americana de 1929.
    Após o sorvete mais caro da história, decidimos voltar para a van para sentar à beira do rio e tomar uma cerveja que compramos no Chino (é o nome do mercado) perto da marina para tentar amenizar o calor.

    Gastos:

    Onibus 3,20
    Mc Donalds 15,00
    Sorvete 6,00
    Onibus 3,20
    Cerveja e agua 4,50

    Real Alcázar de Sevilla

    October 25, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Aber jede Schlange hat ein Ende und so erreichen wir doch noch das Innere des Alcazars. Der Alcazar von Sevilla wurde urprünglich als maurisches Fort angelegt und später mehrfach zum Palast erweitert.
    Der heutige Alcazar entstand größtenteils ab 1364 erbaut von Peter I. auf maurischen Ruinen, ein Beispiel für maurische Bauten, die unter christlicher Herrschaft entstanden.
    Der Alcazar dient heute noch der spanischen Königsfamilie als Residenz in Sevilla.

    Salones de Carlos V

    October 25, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Frisch gestärkt gehts am Fischteich vorbei in den "moderneren" Teil des Alcazars, der ebenfalls unter Karl V. entstand. Der eigentliche Palast Karls V. enthält gotische Elemente und bricht mit der maurischen Architektur drumherum. Sehenswert aber ist der riesige Wandteppich der eine historische Landkarte zeigt.Read more

    Royal Alcazar

    January 15, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Now that we had a better idea of the lay of the land, it was just a 20 minute walk to this 10th century building that still functions as a royal palace. The residence was a separate fee so we didn’t see that section. All of the sites we have been to offer a significant “pensioners discount”. In this case, for example, we paid €4 instead of €9,50. Once again, this palace was decorated in the Mudejar style...a mix of Islamic and Christian. It was beautiful and ornate. The royal gardens were dormant but I can only imagine how beautiful they would be in bloom. This is actually a public garden and free to locals since it was once owned by the citizens when the king was exiled in 1931.

    We then walked to the bus station to buy the bus tickets for our next destination. From all my research, it is possible to arrive an hour early and buy same-day bus and train tickets. But I learned my lesson in Segovia and don’t want to risk a sell-out!
