Andalusia - Sevilla

Welcome to Sevilla
The first city that we went during our Andalusia working tour is Sevilla (pronounce as seˈβiʎa or se-vi-ya according to my system). This is the beginning of our tracking to the Islamic history in Spain. 

Walking in typical Spanish narrow passage

For example, this passage is the entrance to Postigo de Adb-el-Aziz

Palacio de Alcazar

The watch out tower, Torre del Oro, which erected after the Muslim during the invasion of Tariq bin Ziyad

The dome of this cathedral was once a dome of the main mosque in Sevilla in 7/8th century.

 Picture moment!

 We also found the shooting venue of Star Trek - Plaza Espana.

They removed the lamp-post, touched up the sky and of course the modern people..tada....Queen Amidala was walking with Anakin Skywalker

but if you leave the horses and its carriages it becomes the venue of classical Lawrence of Arabia. (this picture is taken from Wikipedia)
