Granada Video Journal

Seville Video Journal

The historical southern Spanish city of Seville will beguile you with the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, the visually delightful Mudejar-style Alcazar, the Gold Tower where the treasures brought from the Americas were unloaded from ships and stored, the passion of flamenco and SO much more. Sit back and enjoy the visuals in this video journal.

Note: I’ll also be posting a photo journal on Seville shortly.
