Seville is badass part 1

There is so much in Seville I have to divide the pictures into 2 or 3 segments.

semi-overcast 20 °C
View Spain/Portugal 2007 on therook's travel map.

Here is the first. The Cathedral. And some stuff around there.

So, on the way to the cathedral, very nice colorful buildings.

In the first rooms I went in was like a museum more or less. With artifacts and paintings and such.

This was a little of the Alcazar. I didnt go in because the line was around the block.

And Okay, I decided that Seville is the most badass city in spain. This is the door to the Alcazar. Tell me thats not sweet.

And finally, at the days end, this was my dinner! It had whole shrimps in it. Legs, eyes, little unhappy faces. But it was good.
