Seville is a beautiful city offering tourists a huge variety of things to do and place to see, from the many museums, markets, local landmarks and parks including the Cathedral of Seville, possibly the largest church in the world and resting place of the remains of Christopher Columbus. There is an old tradition here of buying sweets at a closed convent, you ring the bell and a nun will say ‘Ave Maria Purisima’ and you say ‘Sin pecado concebido’, then you ask and pay for your treats! When planning a trip to Seville, remember that all of Southern Spain is accessible from here, so you plan some of your time in the city and some of your time to explore places like Granada, Cordoba and Ronda.
