A Night Walk Around Old Town Sevilla

Definitely one of the advantages of staying in a hotel right in the middle of the city center is the ability to wander around and experience the city after the sun has gone down.
A Spanish city changes at night. Somehow it becomes even more vibrant and authentic as locals, offered a temporary respite from the hustle and bustle of the daily barrage of tourists, are now free to come out, dine, and socialize; the Spanish way of rewarding one's self for a hard day's work.

* And in Old Town Sevilla, the UNESCO World Heritage Site is wonderfully lit and conducive for romance.

Sevilla Cathedral: The Largest Cathedral in the World

In the medieval competition for recognition of the title of "Champion of Christianity", Spain certainly talked the talk and walked the walk. 
Not content with colonizing the Americas and the Philippine Islands in the name of Christ and waging a crusade to reconquer the Iberian peninsula from the Muslim Moors, Spain also built herself several iconic and unrivaled churches; among which is the Cathedral of Seville.
Also known as the largest cathedral in the world!

* And burial place of famed explorer, Christopher Columbus.
