Seville is the capital of the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. More than 700 years of Moorish rule in Andalusia have left their mark - primarily in the form of magnificent buildings. The most important landmarks include the ornate Alcázar Palace, built under the Moorish Almohad dynasty, and the bullring Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza from the 18th century. Seville's Gothic cathedral houses the tomb of Christopher Columbus and the Giralda, a minaret converted into a bell tower.

Seville, the city of joy and flamenco

Seville is famous as the “cradle of flamenco”, which is mainly practiced in the Triana district.

It is also called “la Ciudad de la Alegría”: the city of joy and that is perfectly justified. In Seville, life takes place in colorful alleys, courtyards decorated with flowers, on historic plazas and in tapas bars.

Attractions in Seville

The Alcázar is a royal palace and is still used today by the Spanish royal family as an official residence. It is the oldest royal palace in Europe. This Arab-Moorish palace represents the Mudéjar art. Every room is decorated to the last centimeter with geometric patterns, plants and azulejos.

The Plaza de España was built in 1928 for the 1929 Ibero-American Exhibition to celebrate the discovery of America by Spanish conquerors. The square was designed in a semicircle to receive incoming ships from America. There you can admire canals that reflect the wonderful architecture of the palace, 4 bridges that symbolize the 4 ancient Spanish kingdoms and arcades, fountains and the famous 52 benches made of azulejos; each represents a Spanish province.

The Metropol Parasol is 150 meters long, 70 meters wide and 26 meters high and is currently the largest wooden structure in the world.

The Torre del Oro or "Gold Tower" was built on the banks of the Guadalquivir River in the early 13th century to strengthen the city's military defence.

Museums and cultural institutions

But Seville also has a lot to offer for passionate museum visitors. The bullring of Seville, Plaza de toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla in Spanish, was built in the 18th century and the bloody competitions still take place here today. Most of all, the building now serves as a museum.

The Archivo General de Indias (India Archives) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Both the collection and the building were granted status by the International Organization for Education, Science and Culture in 1987.
