A bit of a flashback, from 2001, taken on my cheap Pentax film camera. Seville was my favourite city in Spain, it had an almost exotic charm, I felt as sense of North Africa and the Middle East with the wealth of Islamic architature and cultural flourishes that remain in Andalucia.
Here is a perfect example, a mixture of Islamic and Christian architecture. The tower was originally the minaret from the Mosque. The building begain life as far as back as 1198, when the original Mosque was completed. After the Reconquista, the Catholic Catherdral was complted by the early 1500's. It is the third largest Cathedral in the world.
The neighbourhoods around are full of narrow streets (Barrio Santa Cruz) and there were many street musicians, and at night, the bars hopped, and there was some real, raw flamenco to be seen.
