Travelogue: Sevilla, the most enchanting city of all (part I)

If you know me, you’ll already know my passion for Sevilla; it had been on my wish list for years and when we first visited I fell instantly in love, even though we spent a good proportion of the week getting lost!  We’ve been back quite a few times since and every time I love it a little bit more.  It was my birthday last month, so no prizes for guessing where I chose for my celebration trip.

Because we’ve been a few times before and have lots of photos, I thought I’d challenge myself a bit more this time.  I took only one lens and focused more on people and general life.  I had a lot of dud photos, as I only got the lens a couple of days before we travelled and I hadn’t had a chance to play around with it but becoming more adept with my camera is one of my goals, so I’m treating it as a learning process.

We were staying on Jesus del Gran Poder, at Plaza del Duque, which is a great location bang in the centre of town.

On the second day of the holiday it was my birthday and I was delighted to discover there was a small procession that evening, close to where we were staying.  I’ve always really fancied going in Semana Santa just to experience it once, but Stu thinks the crowds would drive him insane.  This one had a Cristo and Virgen.  The statues are stunningly beautiful and it’s quite a sight to see them floating down the street.

Some other images from the crowd:


After all the excitement, we needed a drink.  I love these mannequins watching over the wine.

Well that was Day 1 and 2, more to follow.  Hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a bit of the city.

’til next time.
