About the tour

In the 16th century, almost overnight, Seville became one of the greatest cities in the world. A flood of gold and silver arrived to this town every year from the Americas, funding the global expansion of the Hispanic Monarchy. This made Seville a multicultural metropolis and a bustling trade centre, but also a notorious city of sin and temptation, full of schemes and trickery that offered hope to the hopeless and the opportunity of getting rich quickly, or die trying. Join your local guide Nicolas in a walk from the Cathedral to the Arenal neighbourhood and travel back in time to the Golden Age of the Spanish Empire, enjoying the magnificent views of the Guadalquivir River!


Meet Nicolas

Nicolas

In Seville was he born, a pleasant city, Famous for oranges and women—he Who has not seen it will be much to pity, So says the proverb—and I quite agree Well pity no more, for Nicolas is here to show the wonders of Seville. Like Byron’s Don Juan, he was born and raised by the mighty Guadalquivir, under the shadow of the Giralda. A life-long lover of old books and obscure maps, he traveled the world from Lisbon to Philippines in his younger years, studying the history of the Spanish empire in the Pacific Ocean. He then came back home to sunny Seville and took up the ancient art of story-telling, entertaining travelers from all around the world with tales about poet-kings and honey thieves, orange trees and Manila shawls, lost libraries and wayward nuns. Join him as he guides you through the narrow streets of Seville’s Old Quarter and discover the light and music of this unforgettable city!
