Full description
Discover Seville through its historical female figures on a 2-hour guided walking tour. You’ll visit many of the top sites in the city, and others that are a bit more off the beaten track. At the Old Tobacco Factory you’ll learn about the cigar girls. You’ll also discover the role of women at the Costurero de la Reina (the queen´s sewing box), and at Maria Luisa Park. You’ll end the tour at the square where a literary Don Juan laid his hands on a certain Doña Inés. The itinerary highlights one of the city’s most popular parks, the awe-inspiring architecture of Exposition 1929, and the narrow alleys of the Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz. You’ll enjoy a refreshing stop at an atmospheric local bar. Take a leisurely walk through the city and pass by some of the most interesting monuments that date from a variety of historical periods. At the same time, you’ll learn about Seville’s past from a female perspective. This unique tour is 100 per cent inspired by the women who played important roles in the history of Seville even if they don’t appear in all the history books.

    Seville: a wonder!

    Also for our trip to Seville we chose GYG tours. As always excellent preparation and organization. We visited small corners of the city and discovered interesting legends about the historical characters who lived in Seville. Very collaborative Filippo who, despite having chosen the tour in Spanish, in the absence of Italian, was available to do it in our language. Recommended!!!

    Tour-guide Alba was fanastic! Great English, profound knowledge of the history of Sevilla and of the women she introduced. And in addition, she's a wonderful storyteller! I deeply recommend this tour!
