Inside the Alcazar royal palace

We ported in Cadiz today, but Jim and I went to Saville instead. It was good fun, we got off the boat, grabbed a cab and went the hour to Saville on a highway with nothing but farms on the sides of it. Sunflowers, olives and some root veggies like potatoes and radishes as far s the eye could see. When we got to Saville we stopped at a park with museums around the sides and a mob of white pigeons. Then we went to a plaza with a massive building that wrapped around it and was covered in hand painted tiles. There were bridges from the plaza to the building over what used to be a mote. It was super cool! From there we went to the Alcazar, which was once a royal palace and dates back to More times.

Alcazar garden
It's been added on to so it's a real mix. It's completely covered in hand painted tiles, carves scroll work and gold leafing, absolutely stunning! I loved it. The back of the walled in area were gardens that stretched out forever. They had archways, fountains, ceramic tiled benches, it was so pretty. But so bloody warm! Meh, we had a few bottles of water and chilled in the cafe for a bit to cool down then we went across the road to the largest Gothic cathedral... IN THE WORLD... (I say it in a loud booming voice). Anyway, it was super cool and we had a really good day out. The taxi driver took us to the bull ring to get a photo out front then we called it a day. Not so shabby. Now we're just waiting for the boat to set sail and we're off to Lisbon for tomorrow.
