The noble steeds that grace the streets of Seville are the real heroes of this blog post. There’s something truly magical about the rhythmic sound of horse hooves and the gentle sway of a carriage as it glides over the cobbled streets. Horses are renowned for their graceful demeanour and gentle disposition, and they look right at home taking you and your partner sight seeing in the most unique way, in one of the most beautiful cities!

Top Sightseeing Spots

We started this activity at the Cathedral or ‘Catedral de Santa Maria de la Sede de Sevilla’ for its full title. Seville Cathedral is one of the largest gothic Cathedrals in the world, incorporating elements of the Moorish architecture that once characterised the region. Did you know, Seville Cathedral is also Christopher Columbus’s final resting place!

From the Cathedral, we set off on our journey to The Plaza de España, passing popular spots like Torre del Oro and Jardines del Prado de San Sebastian. To anyone that has not yet heard of The Plaza de España in Seville, you are in for a treat. This semi-circular structure stands as a breath taking example of the city’s rich cultural heritage, with its ornate ceramic tiles, intricately carved bridges and majestic towers. The Plaza de España is a sight not to be missed.

History with Horses

Growing up surrounded by horses, these animals have been an integral part of my life from a young age. I experienced first-hand the beauty and thrill of carriage driving when I was a teenager, and one of the most captivating aspects of this sport is the undeniable connection between people and horses. As a former competitive groom, I experienced first-hand the beauty and thrill of navigating through scenic landscapes with these magnificent animals. The heart of each horse will warm you more than the Spanish sun, making the activity not only romantic but also very fulfilling on a personal level. There’s a strong sense of tranquillity that fills you as you set off on a one-of-a-kind carriage ride with your partner!
