Discover the Arabic, Roman, Baroque and Renaissance architecture of Seville at your own pace with a round-trip transfer from the cruise ship terminal at Cadiz Port. Marvel at the colorful tiles of Plaza España, learn about the home of flamenco, and more.
What to Expect
Discover Seville at your own pace on a 7-hour, self-guided shore excursion from Cadiz. Learn how the city’s diverse civilizations, including the Romans, Moors, and Jews, have left their mark on the city by the Guadalquivir River. Following a pick-up from Cadiz Port, transfer to Seville, the capital of Andalusia and a hotbed of flamenco culture. Relax in air-conditioned comfort on the approximate 90-minute journey, and on arrival, explore at leisure.
Immerse yourself in Spanish art and architecture at cultural sites such as Plaza España in Maria Luisa Park, built for the 1929 Exposición Ibero-Americana. Sit in the shade of orange trees in delightful squares, and enjoy some typical Spanish tapas in the city where tapa culture was born.
Before you arrive in the historic city center, you will be provided with maps by your English-speaking host. The drop off is right by the immense cathedral (one of the largest Gothic churches in the world) and Real Alcazar (the former Moorish Palace), and within easy access of the neighboring Jewish Quarter. Admire the cathedral’s bell tower (Giralda), originally built as a minaret during the Moorish era. Climb to the top for breathtaking views of Seville.
Explore the maze-like Jewish Quarter (Barrio Santa Cruz), and stop for a café con leche in one of the enchanting cafés. Go to the Torre del Oro, built by the Almohad dynasty to control access to Seville via the Guadalquivir River. History lovers should visit the General Archives of the Indies, home to antique documents about the colonization of the New World, including the letters of Christopher Columbus and over 8,000 maps that show the discovery of the American continent.
Then it’s time to get back on the coach for the return transfer past olive groves and cotton fields to the cruise ship terminal at Cadiz at least an hour before your ship departs.
