The Legacy of Ferdinand

ITINERARY 1: Seville - Espartinas - Santiponce - La Algaba - Cazalla de la Sierra.

ITINERARY 2: Carmona - Alcalá de Guadaira - Los Morales - El Coronil - Montellano.

Of its defences, Seville maintains the Alcázar - a magnificent palace that combines both Islamic and Christian art -, some towers - of Abdalajís, of Silver, of Gold -, and a bit of the walls in the Macarena area, with Islamic features of the 12-13th c. There still remains a part of the old Carthusian monastery of Las Cuevas, founded in 1400 and for a time Christopher Columbus' residence and burial ground there are also remains of the Hieronymite monastery of San Jerónimo.

The first itinerary covers other monasteries: near Espartinas we have the 18th c. Loreto, built over a previous 14th c. Frnaciscan shrine and on the outskirts of Santiponce, there is monastery of San Isidoro del Campo, Hieronymite from 1431, with a Gothic church, tombs and a loverly altarpiece by Martínez Montañés and two mudéjar cloisters with traces of frescoes. After a look at the 15th c. mudejar Torre de los Guzmanes at La Algaba the tour might end with a visit to the Carthusian monastery at Cazalla.

The other itinerary is for castles: Carmona has remains of Roman and Moorish defences in the Seville and Cordova Gates, Alcázares de Abajo and de Arriba; Alcalá has the ruins of a castle and in the neighbourhood, there is the 14th c. Marchenilla castle; after taking a look at the shrine of La Consolación, (church of an old 16th c. Franciscan convent) near Utrera we come to three splendid castles in the plains: 14th c. Los Morales, 15th c., Las Aguzaderas castle near El Coronil and the 14th c. castle of Cote, on further side of Montellano.
