Why Visit Seville?
Seville is the capital city and largest of southern Spain’s Andalusia region, situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River.
The river, with 60 navigable kilometres, was an important harbour during the Spanish conquest of the American continent. Silver and gold from the New World arrived in Seville through the river and were distributed throughout the country from here.
The city of Seville is famous worldwide for its culture, monuments, traditions and artistic heritage. This is the birthplace of Flamenco and the city where the most amazing Easter processions take place. But Seville is also the neuralgic centre of the South of Spain, a city full of life and possibilities.
Andalucía’s capital embodies the spirit of traditional southern Spanish culture, from flamenco to bullfighting, to winding ancient cobblestone streets.
Seville is a must for travellers who want to completely immerse themselves in Andalusian culture and history.
