  • Stroll through the corners with more charm of the Centre of Seville, discovering the hidden treasures of its history, adds more strength if it is to the excitement of travel where the emblematic characters lived, loved, fought and was allowed through its good to take or their tragedies that the city acquired part of his fame. The guided tour lasts hour and a half and no sevillano should lose!
