We took a guided tour of the Barrio Santa Cruz before the Alcazar visit. This place has an amazing history of the people who have lived here over the ages - the Jews, the Moors and the Spanish. A must visit area of Seville.

This is a lovely area to wander through, with lots of shops and restaurants. It is right by the palace and the cathedral. Try not to get lost in the narrow streets!

Lanzarote is in the Canaries more than a 1000 miles from Andalusia` I have never been to the Canaries Don't bother planning tours to mainland Spain in such a short time-even by private jet you would be wasting your time
