Free Things To Do in Seville
Take a stroll in Seville--you'll see plenty of beautiful buildings for free.
The city of Don Giovanni and Carmen is a pretty romantic place to wander around, indeed. This is one of those southern Spanish towns with lots of magnificent Moorish architecture to show off as well as the natural beauty of orange trees and flower-filled patios.
Though admission to the Giralda Tower costs money, admission to the accompanying Catedral de Sevilla is free of charge. And, this just ain't any cathedral, folks. It's the largest Gothic building in the world and the third-largest church in Europe after St. Peter's in Rome and St. Paul's in London. Wow!
The treasure chest of delights includes amazing stained-glass windows, elaborate 15th-century choir stalls and the remains of Columbus.
West of Plaza de San Francisco and north of the Cathedral sits the Archivo General de Indias. Entrance is free for this headquarters of antique documents. The building was constructed from 1584 and 1646 adding texture to the words.
The Barrio de Santa Cruz is a gorgeous neighborhood for doing nothing in particular. Once a ghetto for Spanish Jews, today it is a cacophony of color and character. Winding streets open to tiny plazas. Flower-filled windows provide shade from the Andalusian sunshine. Wrought-iron gates protect patios of plants and fountains. Old world charm, here we are!
