“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. Robert Louis Stevenson
It was a wise choice to visit Spain and Tangier, Morocco in late May and early June. It was quiet calm before the storm of crowds at the major attractions. We passed through Sevilla, Ronda, Granada, Marbella and then Tangier before heading back to New York. This post begins a three-part series on this extraordinary trip. First up, Sevilla & Ronda, Spain
The gothic Sevilla Cathedral is enormous, considered the third largest in floor space in the Christian world after St. Peter’s in the Vatican and St. Paul’s in London.
A photograph from the Giralda, which is accessed from inside the Cathedral. It’s wonderful to view the Alcazar and the pinnacles of the Cathedral.
