Seville Cathedral

November 23, 2018

It was calling for rain in the afternoon, so we woke up early to take advantage of the sun while it was out.

Cobi found us a little cafe called Milk Away, that served juices and smoothies.

Cobi got avocado toast (of course), and I got an amazing apple pie smoothie bowl. It was so good. It had apples, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, honey and granola.

Our rooftop tour didn’t start until 12:30pm, so we wandered around town to get a feel for it, and see what else we wanted to do while we were there. We bought tickets to the Real Alcázar de Seville, which we planned on touring after the cathedral.

When we got to the cathedral, the guide immediately took us up some old, narrow staircases to start the tour.

First we were taken to the upper balconies, where we could see the whole cathedral from a great vantage point. Everything was so narrow and high up, I felt a little queasy as we were making our way along!

It was a bit rainy as we got to the roof, but it was very cool. The detail was insane for something that no one really sees!

It was cool seeing Seville from up here.

We made our way up even higher, and the spiral staircase leading up was pitch black! Really cool, but kinda freaky.

Heading down was almost as crazy, it made me dizzy and some sections were really dark. It was a great tour – definitely worth paying extra for the rooftop tour!

We went straight from the cathedral to the palace. It had started to rain a bit harder at this point, which was a shame as a majority of the palace tour was outside.

The inside was crazy, so elaborate and beautiful.

The Muslim and Christian influences were so cool.

We stopped in the food court for a bacon pizza flatbread thing, a brownie, a gin & tonic for Cobi and a beer for me. The gin was Tanqueray made with Seville oranges which was so good.

It was really pouring at this point, so after we finished in the palace we ran to a coffee shop for a little pick me up. Cobi got a cappuccino and I got a Caramel latte – there was so much caramel in it, it was insane. I loved it.

I was afraid of missing the Taiyaki place again, so we went for a pre-dinner snack!

I went with Dulce de Leche covered in Oreo bits.

It was the perfect rainy day treat.

We went back to the Airbnb to dry off and warm up, then went to a place called No Lugar for dinner.

It was such a cool place.

Really great vibe, and the service was lovely.

We ordered a few dishes to share, starting with the most incredible deep fried cauliflower. The pieces were enormous and the dipping sauce was so delicious.

We also ordered a Pork Katsu Curry which was amazing, too.

After dinner and too much wine, we made our way back to Garlochi to see if we had more luck.

 

IMG_4436

It was open! And just as weird as I was expecting…

We ordered their signature drink, the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ), which was grenadine, whisky and Cava.

We also got rum & cokes, at which point I was feeling very drunk and sleepy. We walked back to the Airbnb and fell into a lovely, deep sleep.
