Seville Alcazar

A cold, cold morning and no sun for my last day in Seville. I spent the morning visiting the Alcazar (though first thing I took a parcel weighing 2 kilos to send Poste Restante to Zamora). Seville is now busy with preparations for the Holy Week processions, with barricades up everywhere near the Cathedral. Trams have stopped running and the tramlines are being filled up with soil so that the bearers of the floats will not trip up. Think a Royal Wedding in London, with raised seating along the route. I will be gone from here, but might catch a procession in Caceres next week.
