The seemingly effortless flamboyance of famous bullfighters, the flirtatious air of the flamenco and the flawless grace of the Moorish Alcazar Palace. This is Seville, the capital of Andalucia and cultural heart of southern Spain. Embark on a journey through the history, colours and flavours that abound this wondrous city.
Seville is the capital of Andalusia and cultural heart of southern Spain. The mighty Guadalquivir River embraces the historic centre of Seville, crossed by numerous bridges both new and old, the water provides the perfect setting for a scenic promenade, as well as the best starting point for a full exploration of the city. A wander through the narrow streets and open plazas will expose you to magnificent old buildings, monuments and churches, as well as delightful modern architecture that springs out of nowhere.
At the Remedios Bridge, head in through the huge park and arrive at Plaza de España. In the wide crescent wings of the building that surrounds the square, you’ll find various fascinating museums. Head north, through the park and past the University of Seville, until you reach Alcazar Palace. Originally built by Moorish kings, this UNESCO Heritage Site, with its stunning arches and romantic atria, is counted among one of the most beautiful places in the entire country. Stroll through the continuous gardens and see the Columbus Monument, before making your way to Seville’s two other UNESCO sites, the General Archive of the Indies and the city’s cathedral.
