    What to say... nothing! No imagination or talent in this place, empty of meaning and thought. In summary: a pitiful scam! Only positive: the air conditioning in the face of the 41 degrees outside.

  • The monastery of Santa Maria de Las Cuevas, also known as the Carthusian monastery, located on the island of La Cartuja in Seville, Spain. The Monastery founded in the 14th century and is a monument of architecture of Mudéjar style, combining Christian and Muslim elements. Before becoming a monk's dwelling on the island in the 12th century were craft workshops for production of ceramic tiles, since the island is very much the caves from which was mined clay.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
