Seville: Day 3

On Saturday, October 29 we wandered around Barrio Santa Cruz and found a charming restaurant for lunch, La Cueva (The Cave). We had an excellent lunch there. Food in Spain is inexpensive. We had a meal of salad, paella, and dessert for 13.50 € each.

The streets in Seville are narrow, which keeps them in shade and provides many quiet zones despite bustling traffic just a short distance away. One street was so narrow that I could touch both sides with outstretched arms.

At the end of the day we visited the Archivo General de Indias, a library of original documents illustrating the history of the Spanish Empire in the Americas and the Philippines. They had an exhibition of documents and maps from the early years of the Spanish Empire in the New World.
