Hi all 👋🏻
As I saw several post from friends popping up each Friday for the #MarketFriday by @dswigle I looked further into it, at what the rules are, and decided I would love to join in 🤩 So here is my first Post!
I take you today through some streets of Sevilla in Spain.
A beautiful city with loads to see and experience.
We went there for a long weekend end of October 2021. So not that long ago.
Let me show you what we found first in the covered food market: as it did surprise us.
We were walking over this long bridge “Puente de Triana” going over the Guadalquivir river.
Heading to the local covered Food Market: Mercado de Triana.
The market is on the right.
Entering the covered market, we see fruits, vegetables, meat and fish.
In Spain almost all covered markets are historic and are dressed up with beautiful tiles around the stalls. The name displaying from the owners of the stalls. And it tells you what you can get there.
It is always such a pretty sight. If we are visiting other areas we do tend to check out the local markets. Even if it is just to wander around.
Fruit and vegetables nicely presented.
Not always displaying prices. So there can be differences in what you would pay 😉
After we walked passed here we saw an escalator going down in a corner and asked what was there.
A local told us, there are ruins under this market and you can enter them from the side street.
So of course we walked to the entrance to check out.
There was a woman sitting behind a table giving us some information about the ruins and we could enter for free after we showed we lived in Spain.
Going down a corridor and some steps we found the ruins.
Imagine the market is above us here…
Let me tell you a little bit about the ruins.
It is part of:
Museo Del Castillo De San Jorge - Museum Of The Castle Of San Jorge, Sevilla.
More information can be found In this website in English!
”The Castle of San Jorge was a medieval fortress built on the west bank of the Guadalquivir river in the Spanish city of Seville (Spain). It was also used as headquarters and prison for the Spanish Inquisition. It was demolished in the 19th century and made into a food market. A museum in the underground ruins focuses on the history of the castle, the Spanish Inquisition and of religious repression.”
The escalator going up at the end of the tour.
It truly is a hidden gem.
I don’t have more photographs of the ruins itself, it’s larger than I show you today. Don’t miss it if you visit Sevilla.
But I have more photographs for you to enjoy, as we walked further through Sevilla city, what I show you next.
Outside the Market we see this statue.
Crossing another bridge going into the historic centre of Sevilla we decided it was time for lunch first.
We entered this cute little bar.
The interior around us.
It’s name is “Toby eats the world”
Located at, Google maps:
We had some delicious tapas and cappuccino’s. Even the owner came up to the table to ask if all was ok.
Wonderful service and truly delicious food.
The menu from their website: Source!
Our bill would have been.
2 cappuccinos €2,90 each
Patatas fritas con Ali Oli €3,50
Lagrimitas de Pollo €3,90
Ensalada Full Green €9,-
Total bill: €22,20
That’s not bad for lunch for 2 people.
Up to our next findings:
Walking through the small streets you do see a lot of tiles, displaying the most wonderful scenes, on corners and on shop fronts.
The oldest bar in Sevilla, we had a quick peak in.
Passing by cute cafés, I was attracted by the lights and many picture frames in the back.
Another very popular little cafe. Serving also Tapas.
In the back streets we find little touristy shops.
More beautiful tiles on restaurants around us.
Some have beautiful displays in the door openings to attract visitors. I liked the painted cabinet and it’s images on the side.
More cafés we pass by.
This building is entirely covered with beautiful ceramic tiles. It was tall and hard to capture with the sun, but hope it succeeded.
A restaurant on the ground floor.
We walked by a sweets shop, had to take a peak inside as the display was rather unique. Don’t you think?
No I didn’t buy any hahaha 🤣
And to finish this post… we passed by these colourful buildings with a flower shop.
It displayed many flowers on the street under a beautiful ceramic tiled wall.
What a pretty sight this shop is.
A quick look back.
That’s all for todays #MarketFriday post. Until the next one! 👋🏻😎
