Thank you for your prayers. :)
Enjoyed the weekend traveling with my CEA program to Seville and Córdoba & thought I'd share a few photos ;) . Since we don´t have classes on Fridays (¡Olé!) we left early Friday morning and got back to Granada Sunday night. It was a nice long weekend! Really enjoyed touring Córdoba and experiencing all their ancient historical monuments, I still can´t believe how OLD Europe is! Seville was super fun to see again too, we toured different things than I had with my aunts so that was great to get to know Seville even better. I hope you enjoy these pictures from the weekend, I seriously can't believe my eyes here in Europe- so many beautiful places to see!
Córdoba. Isn't this bridge just gorgeous? Made by the Romans.
How cool is that?!
We toured the famous Mosque of Córdoba, built by the Moors in the 600s.
It was absolutely amazing, so massive & ornate!
Then when the Christians came to Spain during the Reconquista they added this cathedral to the Mosque. Problem solved. Seriously though, It was crazy to see 2 strikingly different cultures combined in one building. Only in Europe!
On to Seville...
And here we are touring yet another ornate palace in Seville. Honestly, I forget the significance of this one... Someone really rich & important decided he needed a palace a LONG time ago. ;) Europe's definitely not lacking in beautiful cathedrals, palaces, fortresses, etc.
In front of Seville's grand Cathedral. Too bad it's not more ornate...
Gotta love that Baroque arquitecture!
From the top of the bell tower. I was standing in that plaza below in the previous picture.
Great panoramic view of Seville!
On to the Plaza de España, by far my favorite place in Seville.
The CEA group in front of the Granada section of the Plaza.
Things got silly...
Before heading to Granada, we stopped at some Roman ruins on the outskirts of Seville.
Don't we look like Romans?!
