A City like a Drawing
Anyone who has been to Sevilla is sure to admire this magnet souvenir from Spain with affection as it features some easily recognizable landmarks that have made this a real tourist city. It also seems like a drawing you would find in a literary book from the 19th century. In this way, it seems pretty introspective as it uses depth of field and perspective in an interesting way. It makes you think about civil development as well as the meaning of prominently constructed buildings and how they can serve as symbols for a group of local citizens.
Sevilla in Focus
If visiting Sevilla, you can't miss its most emblematic landmarks, three of which have been included by UNESCO in the list of World Heritage Sites. The Archive of Indias, the Alcazar Palace and the Cathedral are not only architectural jewels but also talk of the different moments and influences that create the Spanish history and identity. The Cathedral of Saint Mary dates from the Fifteenth century when the Christians regained Spain after more than seven centuries under the Moors rule. Interestingly, it was built on the site of the most important mosque in the city. The Alcazar of Sevilla is a multi styled complex that blends Mudejar and Renaissance styles. It is a the complex that many view as a small city within Seville. Meanwhile, the Archive of Indias houses all the documentation that registers the conquest and colonization of the Americas. It is intensively visited by scholars researching topics related to the relationship that Spain maintained with the so called New World. Other places worth visiting include the Palace of san Telmo, the Torre del Oro, the Plaza Espana and the famous neighborhoods of La Macarena and Triana. By all means, this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
