Spain Life in Photos: Reales Alcazares, Seville

Cities like Paris and Dubai and Florence are all about indulgences. Smaller cities like Sevilla are all about sharing them. I had another language assistant in to visit Sevilla for the first time this weekend, and my mission was to convince her to move to Sevilla instead of Granada.

Sure, the Alhambra and free tapas in Granada are pure overindulgence, but little else is. Sevilla, on the other hand, has so many small pleasures that make this city a great one to live in as an expat. Cheap food, a variety of nightlife and three UNESCO world-heritage sites in less than one block.
The Reales Alcazares, the royal palaces constructed at the city gates by Muslim conquerors, is a simple pleasure of the capital of AndalucĂ­a. Free to enter for students, residents or anyone born in Sevilla, the handiwork and bright colors stand out against AndalucĂ­a’s deep blue skies, and the palaces and extensive gardens are host to outdoors movies and concerts during the sweltering summer months.
Using Katie’s SLR Canon Rebel, I shot this picture to remind her that the best things in life are free.
