BIKING IN SPAIN- SEVILLE

We have been back in the Colorado Mountains for over a month now, Christmas is over, the family has left and we are waiting for them to send new snow from California storms. Since I have taken few pictures here thus far this year, I decided to spend the next days/weeks posting some photos from our wonderful November trip with VBT "Biking under the Andalusian Sun" in Spain. We began our trip in Seville with 2 nights in the charmingly unusual "Hotel Las Casa De La Juderia".

The hotel as the name implies was near the old Jewish area of the city, and was composed of a group of houses or Casas, joined by an underground passageway.

This is a diagram of the underground passageway.

The passageways varied from unadorned tunnels, to ones that were elaborately tiled, to some columned with artwork, but all were interesting and beautiful.

Traveling along one would come upon beautiful little rest areas -

and then surface to lovely patios and courtyards.

In the evenings after dinner the piano bar was a great place to have a late night drink and listen the beautiful music.

And breakfast was a gourmet delight, with every kind of fruit and pastry imaginable in addition to the normal American fare.
