Day 5 - Sevilla - Alcazar

Updated: Jun 25, 2020

Finally got a good night's rest and feel like we are on Spain time. We wake to the sounds of breakfast being prepared and are ready to start exploring.

Breakfast is included in our room rate and it is quite a spread with a coffee bar, tea, fresh squeezed juices of orange, pineapple and peach even Cava! There are scrambled eggs, bacon, mini sausages, Spanish cheeses, Iberico ham, pastries, toast, fresh fruit and some other local items I don't recognize. You will not leave hungry that's for sure.

After sufficiently gorging on breakfast we roll out for the day. We are walking the famed "Mushroom of Sevilla" or as it is officially named Metropol Parasol.

This structure was constructed for both tourist and locals to enjoy. Allowing for a panoramic view of the city from atop and shopping and restaurants underground. It is well worth the 3 euro to walk the top.

After taking in the views we head out for some shopping only to discover that on Sundays all of the shops are closed. We stroll along looking in through store windows and find ourselves at a bar known for there superior preparation of Sangria and Mojitos. We order one of each to give them a try and add a few tapas to our order.

Grilled artichokes with truffle oil.

Tomato, cheese and basil with a sundried tomato dressing,

Sauteed scallops wit
