Plaza de Espana Seville Spain

1. March 2017. I’ve been living and traveling around the world for over fifteen years now, but I’ve never seen anything quite like the incredible Plaza de España in Seville.

My 5: Seville Cathedral, Spain.

Exterior Seville Cathedral Spain

1. Entrance Gate, April 2017. “Seen one cathedral, seen them all!” I overheard an American tourist say as I strolled through the historical centre in Seville. I’m not sure I agree.

My 5: Córdoba, Spain.

Kairouan Cordoba Spain

1. Kairouan, March 2017. I really have been spoilt here recently in the south of Spain. Camino Del Rey is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen, Ronda has that amazing gorge and Granada boasts The Alhambra. Although ever so slightly in the shadow of its neighbors, Córdoba’s main draw is The Mezquita, […]

My 5: Ronda, Spain.

El Tajo Gorge Ronda Spain

1. El Tajo Gorge, February 2017. I felt like Ronda really had a lot to live up to! After all, I’d arrived on the back of some breathtaking trips around Southern Spain. Thankfully though Ronda’s reputation as “the most beautiful city in Andalusia” has not been exaggerated!
