Seville, according to the Sevillanos, is the envy of Spain. A city bursting with history, brimming with colour that surprises you at every corner with picture postcard scenes of archetypal Spanish life.
TOMA & COE, in just one day, can take you to the beating heart of Baroque Seville to witness first hand the remains of its glory days as the wealthiest city on the planet.
After the discoveries of the Americas, Seville became the only port of entry for all the wealth being poured into the Spanish coffers. A large tax was placed on all goods (15%) and much of it was spent on lavishing palaces and incredibly ornate churches, chapels and convents.
Seville became known as “The Cradle of the Baroque” and there are few better places in the world to see such testimony to this fascinating artistic movement.
Our day tour your takes you on a journey of discovery of the secret side of Seville, to uncover its past through religious institutions and private palaces.
Toma Tours will take you to a closed Convent to meet some of the cloistered nuns and buy the delicious jams that they produce. You will also see an incredible Roman Mosaic preserved by a local lady and housed in the family’s private palace. You will enjoy lunch in a typical Sevillano restaurant before strolling around the old Jewish Quarter and stopping in one of its beautiful squares for coffee before returning back to the Coast.
