We sailed into Cadiz, Spain early this Sunday morning and set directly off for Sevilla. I am glad we did so.
What an incredibly beautiful town.
We managed to sneak into the Cathedral there despite Mass being celebrated. I think there were more lookers than worshipers in this biggest Gothic church in Europe.
It is the third biggest in all the world. Outdone by only St. Peter’s Bascilica and St. Paul’s.
The visit to the Alcazar was breathtaking.
It stands up against anything we saw in Istanbul as far as Moorish architecture and art. This tribute to the Moors was actually built by a Christian King. Go figure!
The Plaza de Espana at the sight of the 1929 International Exhibition was massive and beautiful.
