Regreso a Sevilla

Scenes on the road from Ronda to Seville

From Ronda, we made a direct beeline north-west for Seville to catch our afternoon flight out to Barcelona.

After a concerted drive we made it there with only three hours until our flight, so we raced to the city centre to try to get a quick look at a few of the key sights.

However the one-way traffic system and the difficult parking conditions keep us bottled up for a full 40 minutes leaving me only a 20 minute margin to stump over the the Alcazar and cathedral and take a few critical shots outside, having already photographed the great exhibition hall and a few other sights on the way. I've made up for this by selecting a representative set of shots of the interiors of the Alcazar and cathedral to complete the urban experience as much as possible. There is a high quality photo blog of the Alcazar and Cathedral here.
