Some time off

Last week I had some days off and it was boiling hot in Sevilla, so I wanted to escape the heat and relax a bit.

This was really easy, because if you go by train from the Santa Justa train st...

Equestrian show in Spain

Some of you might have heard of the Andalusian horse breed. It is also known as the PRE, the Pure Spanish Horse. This centuries old breed derives from the area around Sevilla in Andalusia. Because the Moors ruled the south of Spain from the 8th until the 13th century, this breed has both Spanish and Arabian roots. In 1570 king Felipe II, a lover of horses, founded the Royal S...

Tot aan de 18e eeuw is er nog door verschillende architecten aan toegevoegd, en dat maakt de kathedraal een...
