Our Trip to Spain and Portugal: Sevilla Part 3

Good morning, Sevilla! Our second day there, we started the day with strong coffee and fried anchovies. And it was delicious.

After breakfast, we headed to the Alcazar palace, which I highly recommend you visit if you are going to Sevilla. It was one of our very favorite sights.

It's so beautiful. A popular place for wedding photos.

We ran into a number of couples having their wedding pictures taken.

The architecture at Alcazar is incredible.

Fabulous details everywhere you look.

Which is why I took so many pictures.

I could not stop myself.

Seth loved it, too.

We felt invigorated and inspired.

(And ready to take on more tapas.)

It was awesome to watch this peacock react to a lowly duck. He did the full show of feathers.

After all that excitement, we were ready for lunch. Ice cream!

(Well, Seth had paella; I had ice cream.)

Turrón ice cream — a classic in Spain, not to be missed! And a chilled glass of Sherry.

Then it was time for a siesta.

Stay tuned for the next installment — Evora, Portugal Part 1.

  1. Hi! Thank you for sharing! My husband is from Sevilla and we just got back from there after a month-long stay. We also love the Alcazar and now that I have seen the Alhambra in Granada, I would say that there is something about the eclectic mixture of architecture and garden-scape of the Alcazar that I find equally if not more beautiful and interesting. After much traveling, I agree that Sevilla is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, if not the most. And my husband agrees, hehe. And the food is wonderful! Your pictures are gorgeous; you have an amazing eye. I’m wondering what camera you are using, the colors are so brilliant. (?) I’m also on a Matt Stone diet-recovery journey thanks to you, having started in March with rrarfing and I feel amazing, so many positive changes. 🙂 So thank you again for sharing your experiences. Salud!

  2. Gorgeous photos, great compositions! THumbs up for paella…hubby and I spent a couple years studying the authentic varieties and how to make it. He bought one of the super-duper pans from a Spanish food dealer when we lived in SoCal. Both my younger kids fit in it! We were going to make it as a business for our local farmer’s market, but life took a detour…maybe next year. It was hard to convince even local people we knew that rabbit and seafood were awesome paella protein choices. They just wanted chicken. Go figure!

    I love the color of your turron ice cream! Can you describe the flavor? Will you attempt to make it at home?

      1. oh, creme brulee…anything carmel…is my favorite. when we were in new zealand a couple years ago, i think it was in nelson on the south island, there was this ice cream that was a “local” favorite and it had carmel chocolate bits in it. yum! i was willing to break my “no pasteurized dairy” rule for that treat.

  3. Those are great pics! I love the architecture, very artistic. Looking at them reminds me of my trip to Israel, the flowers and shrubs growing up around the buildings that you don’t see here, at least where I am. It’s nice to know you can get real food in other countries, if not here.
