Seville City of Angels 30TH Wedding Anniversary

A late afternoon flight took us to Seville with BA ,Carol had consumed some Champagne ,on arrival the luggage was last of the carousel,not quite a disaster darling.
Our taxi whisked us off to our hotel the Melia Colon in central Seville,after checking in we slipped out for some tapas.
The following morning we were having tea on our rooftop balcony overlooking Seville.
The Jacuzzi looked inviting as pallid and common swift flew overhead,around 1130 hrs we were
picked up by our guide for a tour of  the Cathedral and Alcazar.
First a small church called Hermanos Capuchinos ,inside it was very beautiful.
Next up the the great Cathedral of Seville yielded so much it was hard to take it all in.
Many jewells of the Christian period were on view but the cathedral held Moorish values as well.
So much to look at but Christopher Columbus tomb was something I wished to see as  we
have visited in his footsteps over the years.
Now we follow the path to the top of the Giralda this is not steps but ramps so horses could be ridden to the top.
Halfway up the view is still good as we progress at least 34 ramps to the top.
A great view of the city with the river in the distance ,next up part two the Alcazar .
