The route has been specially designed to take you to the rooftop terraces with the most spectacular views. Departing from City Hall at Plaza Nueva, wander into the old city center to see the immense cathedral, once the tallest building in the world and still one of the largest cathedrals. Marvel at The Giralda, a former Arabic minaret that was converted to the cathedral’s bell tower. Get privileged views of the old city walls, and go to the Alcázar, the exquisite royal palace and former Moorish fort. Stroll down medieval alleys to the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz. Gaze across at the bell towers of more than 60 churches, and see some of the city’s contrasting modern architecture, including bridges over the River Guadalquivir.
To top off your tour, your guide will take you to the famous Metrosolparasol or the “Mushrooms”, one of the most avant-garde spaces right in the heart of the old city. From there you can go up by yourself and enjoy the beautiful panorama. The order of this visit can change depending on the time of the year.
