Discovering Seville in all the small details

Discovering Seville in all the small details

 

Any street you walk down in the old center of Seville brings you immediately to a part of Spain that oozes Andalucía and historic Islamic character called Mudejar (Spanish rule with Islamic design and influence), only few places in Spain can live up to in this area of Southern Spain. A walk through many of the old neighborhoods of the historic center overwhelms the first time visitor with so much luxurious detail, vivid colors and intense graphic designs.

In order that you do not get overloaded and burnt out with the multitude of architectural wonders and ornate design, I am showing you the smaller details that draws so much awe and inspiration to the overall magnificence and design of this Unesco World Heritage site.

Here are some of the stunning details of Seville to savor:

It seems like every attraction and historic site one visits in Seville is so filled with amazing art and craftsmanship in the monuments and landmarks. It is an endless array of beautiful architecture, gardens, palaces, cathedrals and enormous plazas for everyone to stroll through. Seville is grand and magnificent, just how one would dream of an Andalucian experience in Southern Spain.

    Beautiful city…

    Love the beautiful scenes of Seville and the detail you’ve shown in the art and architecture shots. I’d love to experience any place that “oozes Andalucia”.

    Makes me want to return to Seville. Beautiful shots (as always), Noel.

    I love your pics, Noel! I’ve visited Spain several times, but still have not had the pleasure of visiting Seville. Hopefully … sometime soon!

    so many wonderful places to travel around the world. I should have been born a millionaire to see them all!
    Have a wonderful week.

    I had a Spanish teacher in high school who used to rave about Seville and at 15 I did not understand, now I see your photos and I would to see it in person. I really love the ceramics, they remind me of Istanbul

  8. Suzanne Stavert July 21, 2014 at 4:41 pm #

    Stunning! I love the architecture. I need to visit! I have only been to Barcelona and Madrid. Thank you for the lovely virtual trip!

  9. Carole Terwilliger Meyers July 21, 2014 at 2:35 pm #

    Beautiful images of Seville! Such a gorgeous city.

  10. Johanna July 21, 2014 at 2:19 pm #

    Love the architecture, love your photos – and want to visit 🙂

  11. Dale July 21, 2014 at 10:06 am #

    Really wanted to like Seville, but the place just didn’t connect with me at all which is probably a shame considering the love for the city it receives.

    You’ve captured it pretty well in these pictures though.

  12. Betsy Wuebker | PassingThru July 21, 2014 at 9:15 am #

    Aloha – Can’t wait to get to Spain (perhaps in 2015)! Your photos are so compelling! Love the Moorish influences in the architecture.

  13. jesh StG July 21, 2014 at 8:11 am #

    One of the first pieces of classical musi I came in contact with as a teen was “the Barber of Sevilla” -now I see it through your lens, it makes a perfect backdrop for that opera (operette?) – ornate is the right description!

  14. Shelley July 21, 2014 at 8:06 am #

    Seville is one of my favorite cities in the world. Your photos make me want to go back soon!

  15. Anita @ No Particular Place To Go July 21, 2014 at 6:26 am #

    We’ve pretty much decided to start our European travels in Spain next year and, thanks to your gorgeous photos, Seville will have to be at the top of the list! And you’re so right to focus on the details to avoid becoming totally overwhelmed by the beauty … absolutely stunning!

  16. Kathy July 21, 2014 at 5:44 am #

    Ohhhhh those colors! Fabulous!

  17. Chanel | Cultural Xplorer July 21, 2014 at 3:46 am #

    What rich colors in your photographs of Seville! Happy TPMonday!

  18. Anne July 21, 2014 at 3:22 am #

    Fabulous photos – makes me eager to return to Sevilla!

  19. Michele Peterson July 21, 2014 at 2:50 am #

    Some truly beautiful shots of my husband’s all-time favourite city! When we were in Seville it rained the whole time with torrential winds so I didn’t get any good exterior shots. Worth a return visit for sure!

  20. Molly S July 20, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

    Beautiful photos, Noel! I’ve visited the south of Spain, but I didn’t get to Seville unfortunately – it’s been on my list to go back to ever since! The colours here look so vivid.

  21. Catherine July 20, 2014 at 9:00 pm #

    Oh Seville looks magical… love all the tiling and ornate architecture. Beautiful photos Noel!

  22. santafetraveler July 20, 2014 at 6:29 pm #

    Ole! Ab fab Seville photos. I love the view through the arches- but they’re all wonderful. So evocative of place.

  23. Amy @ Ms. Toody Goo Shoes July 20, 2014 at 6:08 pm #

    Beautiful photos that make me want to pack my bags and head right to Seville!

  24. A Cook Not Mad (Nat) July 20, 2014 at 6:08 pm #

    Beautiful photos but I’ve come to expect nothing less from you 🙂

  25. Suzanne Fluhr July 20, 2014 at 5:51 pm #

    I’m looking at your artful photos of beautiful Sevilla, with new Zentangled eyes. I am drawn in by the patterns of the mudejar architecture and design.

  26. Marie-France (a.k.a. BigTravelNut) July 20, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

    I should be in Seville in October. I’ll try to reproduce your first photo. 🙂 Thanks for these beautiful images.

  27. Marilyn Armstrong July 20, 2014 at 4:55 pm #

    The Moorish influence is so powerful in that area it reminds me of places I’ve visited in the middle east, the mosaics, arches, architecture. Great pictures!

  28. Rajlakshmi July 20, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    Beautiful monday post… loved the horse carriage 😀

  29. Donna Janke July 20, 2014 at 10:35 am #

  30. Anda @ Travel Notes & Beyond July 20, 2014 at 10:09 am #

    Beautiful photos, Noel. The Cathedral of Seville is the most beautiful and grandiose cathedral that I have ever seen.

  31. Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse July 20, 2014 at 9:41 am #

    The architecture really is amazing!

  32. Laura July 20, 2014 at 9:03 am #

    Noel! I love Sevilla, the heat, the colors, the tapas! I love it all. I was there not too long ago and recognize most of the places in your photos…so beautiful!

  34. Sand In My Suitcase July 20, 2014 at 6:44 am #

    Seville looks absolutely gorgeous! We’re seriously planning a visit to Seville and Spain next year. Your photos are an extra enticement :-).
