Re: Seville-besides taking ferry, any day trip or 1 night tour to Morroco?

by puerto_lover

Day trip or one night tour to Morocco ? From Seville ? Quickest ferry is from Tarifa to Tangier using www.frs.es who have some tours. See web site.
You can fly from Seville airport into Morocco. I know www.ryanair.com has some schedule presently. Not sure about others.
You can currently fly from Seville on a Friday morning on Ryanair to Marrakech then return on a Monday.They also do flight to Fez.

Travel Tips for Sevilla

The Cathedral is FREE on Sundays!

by Hopkid

Because it still holds regular services on Sunday, the cathedral isn’t open to visitors until 2:30pm, but the nice thing is that admission is FREE! Usually the admission is 7 euros so this is a great deal! This was great for me because my camera batteries had died after a busy morning at the Alcazar so I didn’t have my camera with me when we visited at 2:30pm. But I was able to go back to our room, sufficiently charge my battery, and return to the Cathedral and La Giralda to get the photos I wanted without having to incur the admission fee.

Santa Cruz, a simple neighbourhood

by tompt

In this picture you can see an other example of the pilar in the corner of a building. This pillar, as said in the previous tip, is to protect the building from damage from carriages. Most of these pillars are reused materials. Maybe from ancient Roman buildings or monuments. In this picture you can see (you will probably have to enlarge it first) another example of reused material. Under the red paint, to the right of the pillar, one can find a circle. This is an old millstone.
The Santa Cruz was not a rich neighbourhood and they had to use recycled materials to built.

I enjoyed walking on the...

by Pegasus74

I enjoyed walking on the cobblestone streets networking the Old Town, that are just not too wide but good enough to pack a whole lot of people. The Sevillians are always heading to somewhere and I could notice occasionally someone in a crowd along Calle Sierpes sneaking into a miniature cathedral that sits at a tight Y-junction facing some boutique shops. I like the location of the cathedral; it is so good a resting-place especially when your legs are tired. Obviously I did not do that when I was there and will not suggest the idea to potential visitors. I thought it erects at a phenomenal yet lovely part of the town, perhaps for sinners of the day to conveniently confess at the altar. I should have taken down the name of the cathedral to ask you have a peep.

Above the many shops that populate the town, the flower-bedecked balconies and attractive patios are just so lovely to look at. And near Christmas when I was there, those pathways were glittered and filled with festive ambience. Near dusk, a trio would fill the streets with instrumental music pieces, of which “My Heart Will Go On” could especially be heard from a distance.

Street Performers

by acemj

For the most part, street performers are ignored in most cities I've ever visited. However, in Sevilla, people stop, listen and genuinely seem to appreciate the efforts of a talented street performer. These guys were playing classical Christmas tunes on Calle Sierpes, a main shopping street.

Watching Your Favorite Soccer Team In Action

by Krystynn

The world's most recognized sport - yes, football or soccer (to you - the American). If you're a fan of Sevilla Futbol Club S.A.D., you'd be happy to know that you can catch your favorite team compete for Spain's most coveted soccer trophy every weekend.

Me? Which team do I support?

Honestly speaking, I don't really support any teams in the La Liga. But when I do tune in to the La Liga matches, I normally cheer for the underdogs... I'm allergic to Real Madrid and Barcelona FC. I find these teams too cocky. Now, I'll surely be banned from visiting Madrid and Barcelona - ever again!

In the 2002/2003 football season when Real Sociedad was suddenly flying high in the La Liga, I was actually cheering on for them. Sadly, they lost their last match of the season and the multi-millionaire players of Real Madrid grabbed the trophy - AGAIN. :-( Will any Spanish team be game enough to beat Madrid? If Sevilla can beat Madrid, I'll support this team for sure! ;-))

For the 2003/2004 season, I'll be rooting for Valencia. :-D That's because Real Sociedad is doing so badly at the current moment. But then again, the results might change towards the final quarter!

Incidentally, I am an ardent supporter of AC Milan who plays in the Serie A (the Italian domestic league).
