Sevilla-España

Seville is probably the classic heart of Spain, a place where you´ll find most of its famous typical traditions: sun, tapas, flamenco, colourful religious street processions, bullfights, siesta, night life and impressive architecture… Andalusia´s capital, with more than 700.000 inhabitants, is the fourth biggest city in Spain by population. Sevilla is a fantastic place to enjoy a vivid night life and a rich historic and artistic heritage, a perfect place to go shopping and, of course, to eat “tapas” in one of its numerous restaurants or have some drinks in terraces and bars that are all over the city. In Seville it is impossible to get bored! Its great location in the heart of Andalusia allows visitors to discover its beauty and explore a vast list of enchanting places all around the region.

Seville origins go back to the Tartessos civilization around 3000 B.C. Since then Seville has been Roman, Visigoth, Muslim and Christian. When Seville was part of the Roman Empire, the city was called Hispalis: in fact it was the Romans who established the legend that the Greek hero Hercules founded the city. Not one but two emperors of this huge civilization were born in Andalusia: Trajan and Adrian. It is during the Muslim period, when Arabs arrive to the south of the Iberian Peninsula in the beginning of the 8th Century that the whole of Andalusia became the cultural, commercial and political heart of Al-Andalus. A clear sign of the importance of this period is that the current name, Andalusia comes from its Muslim name. Córdoba, Granada and Seville were cities where arts, sciences, literature and architecture flourished leaving an astonishing monumental heritage: The Golden Tower, Royal Alcazar, La Giralda, just to mention a few. When the Christians reconquered Andalusia and the Arabs were expelled in 1492, Seville not only kept on growing but became the heart of the New World discovery. Seville was then the economic centre of the Spanish Empire, the door to the large wealth that arrived from America along the Guadalquivir River, connecting Seville with the Atlantic Ocean, and therefore, the Old World with the New World. The city offers an extraordinary mix of customs, traditions and styles that combine themselves with no effort along its streets, monuments and daily life. The strong gypsy presence in Andalusia brought flamenco and its musical instruments: nowadays, it would not be possible to understand Spanish Culture without them. Muslims left behind their monumental architecture with its bright colours and decorative motifs, which still dominate the whole region. Christians and the Catholic Church, promote their saints and iconography establishing the Holy Week that gives the city a singular spiritualism very difficult to find anywhere else. An icon of this artistic and cultural melting pot is with no doubt Seville´s Cathedral: a church built over the old mosque, its old minaret now converted into the famous bell tower La Giralda, probably the most breath-taking and well-known monument in Seville.
