Tourism in Seville
Seville is a charming city that moves to the rhythm of flamenco, in fact, a popular Spanish song claims that "Seville has a special colour", and you can't help but notice this as soon as you arrive. Located in the south of Spain, it is the capital of Andalusia, and one of the most populated cities in Spain after Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.
Lying on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville became a highly important city and a prosperous trading centre thanks to the river linking it to "the Americas".
The Andalucian capital has incredible sights such as the Cathedral, the Torre del Oro, Plaza España and the Giralda. Although sometimes all you need is to wander around the beautiful streets in the Triana and Santa Cruz neighbourhoods, or enjoy a peaceful walk through the stunning María Luisa Park, to connect with the city's traditions and Andalusian energy.
