Seville, a city of queens, nuns, prostitutes and witches
Experience a totally different side of Seville on a themed walking tour that explores the city’s history from a female point of view. Discover some of the powerful women, and some who weren’t so powerful, who made Seville what it is today.
Discover Seville through its historical female figures on a 2-hour guided walking tour. You’ll visit many of the top sites in the city, and others that are a bit more off the beaten track.
