Sevilla part 2

sunny 34 °C

Our second day in Seville was just as hot, after breakfast we headed over to the area to catch the tourist bus to see the city. Lots of architecture and old buildings to see, you could immediately see the different influence in the architecture here than what we saw in Barcelona. A very moorish/islamic feel to the buildings here in Seville.

On our tour we saw the Plaza Del Torros where they still hold bullfights.

The tomb of Christopher Columbus resides here in Seville, but the contents of the tomb are open to debate. Popular belief says his remains are located in the Dominican Republic.

Seville was not my favorite part of this trip, while it is a beautiful city the very "maƱana" attitude of is citizen's was wearing thin on me. We did have great service at our hotel and at a couple restaurants, but basically service was very slow, food service was very slow. We did find the food quality to be less than what we had experienced in Barcelona, but cheaper as well.

Anyway tomorrow its was off to Cordoba and then to Granada. Miguel and I got to talking in the afternoon and decided to change things up a little bit. We cancelled our reservations in Cordoba and in Granada and decided to head to Malaga and the Costa Del Sol. Specifically we decided to go to Torremolinos.
