Next up on the trip itinerary is a journey to Seville, a city in the south of Spain and the capital of Andalusia. From Nerja by car it is about a 3 hour drive. Our driver meets us at our Nerja hotel at 9:45 for the journey south (and west). The ride was pleasant as the mountains around Malaga gave way to the rolling hills of Andalusia.
We arrived at the hotel Gran Melia Colon around 12:30. This beautiful hotel is in the heart of Seville’s shopping area. It also provided an excellent jumping off point for our treks around the city.
