Seville city is one of Spain’s popular cities visited by millions of tourists every year. Together with over 700,000 inhabitants, this city welcomes visitors from every corner of the globe.

Seville is Andalusia’s capital at the south of Spain located close to River Guadalquivir at a valley. This city was made famous for its rich culture, colorful traditions, artistic heritage and historical ancient monuments.

This is where the colorful and inspiring Flamenco originates with orange blossoms found at every street corner.


Seville has many places and sights of attraction to captivate the tourists. Giralda tower impresses all who view it as the world’s third largest cathedral; magnificent palaces showcase exquisite various epochs’ architecture; the awesome bull ring for bull fights that pump the adrenalin; these and many other attractions draw the crowd to Seville throughout the year.

Many of these attractions are found along River Guadalquivir which is an easy landmark at Seville.

The huge cathedral is of Gothic structure which houses the grave of Christopher Columbus who was Spain’s most astounding explorer. The cathedral is standing at the spot of a Moorish mosque with certain Arabic elements seen on the back tower where the minarets are.

Also in Seville is the oldest royal palace in Europe; this is the Reales Alcázares. This amazing palace was built by the Christian kings of Castile; hence, it is a royal residence for visiting Spanish royalties. The amazing palace is made of different types of architectural designs such as Christian, Moorish and Mudejar constructions.

Cozy town

Seville city poses a most picturesque holiday attraction with its charming narrow cobbled streets with whitewashed homes that sport fresh flowers and iron grilles to give a most cozy ambience that is typical of an Andalusia home.

The town plaza, Plaza de España, was built in the year 1929 for a cultural exhibition; today it functions as a leisure spot with a vast space for strolls and meeting up with friends. Maria Luisa Park is just opposite the plaza with charming ceramic tiles, fountains and bridges. There are decorative arcades with lined benches for the comfort of the park visitors.

The town also has a quaint church called La Macarena church that is famous for the special statue of Virgin Mary used in every Easter procession. The local museum showcases more pieces of Virgin Mary. The 11th century Moorish city walls surround the town to give it a sense of security.
