SEVILLA IN MAY
May is the month of flowers and if you come to Seville you will notice it wherever you go. The orange trees of the city are flowered with their particular smell of orange blossom, the gypsies of the balconies are at their peak as well as palm trees, ficus, elms, jacarandas .... Strolling through the center of the city is a pleasure for the senses and that is why in this week's post we want to recommend 5 places or gardens that you can not miss and enjoy while you are in Seville.
Maria Luisa Park
It is the lung of the city and was a gift from the Dukes of Montpensier to Seville in 1893. Get lost in its gazebos, discover Monte Gurugú or the duck pond. Discover the gazebo dedicated to Bécquer and of course do not miss the Plaza de España, its most famous monument created for the Iberoamerican exhibition of 1929 or the Plaza de América, where you will find the Archaeological Museums or the Museum of Popular Arts and Customs.
Gardens of the Real Alcázar
These Hispanic-Muslim gardens have been cultivating for over a thousand years and, as its name indicates, it belongs to the Real Alcázar of Seville. It holds the title of World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In it you will find plants and trees from all continents without having to move from the enclosure. Let yourself be transported walking through those gardens to the Dorne Water Gardens of Game of Thrones.
We do not want to stop reminding you that from one of our establishments Suites Murillo Alcazar is right in front of the Alcazar of Seville.
Gardens of Murillo
For us this is very special, since it is next to our Hotel. They were old orchards of the Gardens of the Alcázar and they turned into garden of manners style in 1.911. It is dedicated to the Sevillian painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo. And our Hotel Murillo is next door.
Plaza del Cabildo
It is a beautiful square that usually goes unnoticed by visitors, very quiet with a circular floor and which belonged to the Cabildo de la Catedral. You will not imagine a beautiful square in the middle of buildings.
Alameda de Hércules In its beginnings it was a lagoon and it became the first public park in Europe. Now you can see it covered with poplars. Now it is one of the areas for tapas and the busiest march.
