Metropol Parasol is the largest wooden structure in the world, and is located in La Encarnacion Square. You should seriously go there and enjoy the amazing structure. I took so many pictures and yet I still think 30 was still not enough to capture its beauty. Also, it was completed in 2011 and is known locally as Las Setas de la Encarnación (Encarnacion’s Mushrooms).
General Archive Of The Indies
The General Archive of the Indies is located next to Seville Cathedral and contains important documents relating to the history of the Spanish Empire in the Americas and the Philippines. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A lot of tourist visit this site and I can now understand why! Simply breathtaking.
Plaza De San Lorenzo Church
This church has a statue of San Lorenzo on the main altarpiece. San Lorenzo (Lawrence of Rome) was martyred in 258. The church stands next to a beautiful square that’s filled with orange trees.
Hospital De La Caridad
Hospital de la Caridad has been around since 1674, and still cares for elderly patients. The hospital’s chapel is open to the public. So go ahead and pass by to check it out! (or check in).
Real Alcazar is the oldest royal palace in Europe that’s still in use. It is the official Seville residence of the royal family. The palace is said to be one of the most beautiful in Spain. Part of the fifth season of Game of Thrones was filmed in Real Alcazar.
