Visit the Alcazar Place and the 15th Century cathedral (third largest of its kind after St Peter's in Rome and St Paul's in London) which is built on the ruins of a mosque. Adjoining the cathedral is the 320 foot high Giralda Tower, built by the Moors.

Don't miss the beautiful Plaza Espana built for the original Expo in 1929, with its hand painted tiles depicting Spanish Cities.
