Being the capital of Andalusia, Seville is a city full of life, and historical and cultural heritage, which captivates visitors who walk through its streets full of color and surprises in its corners.
Since its founding by the “Turdetanos” almost 3000 years ago, this city has been closely linked to its river, the Guadalquivir, and it is perhaps because of this that many cultures chose to settle and develop where the city is located today. Romans and Arabs have left their mark on it as they are responsible for the greatest monuments that overwhelm the visitor, such as the Giralda or the Alcazar, where the Christian kings set his royal residence after the reconquest, still retaining this use today.
With the discovery of America in the sixteenth century, Seville became the most important city in the Western world, since wealth from the new continent discovered on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean arrived at its port, which is situated at the foot of the Gold Tower. The traffic of goods and riches from America, as well as the fact that it became the point of departure of missionaries, evangelists and nobles who traveled to the New World, made the city grow as many wealthy families and religious orders fixed their residence in the city. This is reflected in the large number of mansions, convents and churches in Seville nowadays, which are part of its great tourist attraction.
In the twentieth century, Seville is once again center of attention with the Ibero-American Exhibition, which was held in the area of Parque de María Luisa in 1929. In this park, you will find those which are possibly the two most beautiful squares in the city and must see for all visitors: Spain Square and America Square. Later, in 1992, another Universal Exhibition to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America transformed the city and gave it great infrastructures that have given wings to the city to become one of the great capitals of Spain.
The warmth of its people, the good weather and gastronomy are other important part of the heritage of the city, and they will surely make your visit completely unforgettable.
