Castle Tour (AKA I’m So Behind on Blogging)

Ok so sorry for the extended absence. Much has happened and been going on and as I’m getting ready to leave for five days to Austria for vacation with Semana Santa right on its heels (Vienna and Salzburg! AKA Many more pictures and blog posts to come!), I need to get caught up.

So. A few weeks ago now, Karishma and I (the terrible duo per usual) went on a tour of two towns near Sevilla to see the castles and experience small town life for a day. Alcala and Utrera were both super pretty and full of cool old stuff and I will apologise right now but as this was several weeks ago and I took next to no notes, I have very little information about the following pictures in my brain. Just enjoy!

This is called el Puente del Dragón also known as the guardian of Alcála. It was the first decorated bridge in Europe (i.e. one that wasn't just built for utilitarian purposes, but to also look nice)

You can still see the slits for the archers!

Utrera is a city known for its sweets. We spent forever trying to decide on a treat.

This tasted like sugar and apples and angels. Funny because its filling is called "angel hair"

Right beyond those trees is Sevilla ❤

These last two views are gorgeous but I have 0 memory of which belongs to which town.
