Why queue to climb the Giralda tower on the cathedral, when you can go to a spa and admire the city from the rooftop? As a special treat for Mother’s Day, I took my mamma for a couple of hours relaxation in the underground baths in Seville. There is a steam room, scented with herbs and several pools, hot and cold, and iced tea ready if you get thirsty. All in ornate surroundings, based on traditional Arabian Baths (baños arabes) in keeping with Seville’s history. After our massages, we were briefly allowed into the rooftop pool to see the city spread out before us.
