Seville is the capital of the Autonomous Region of Andalusia and the province of Seville, located in the South-West of Spain. Seville is located in the valley of the Guadalquivir river, which crosses the city from North to South. The port of Seville played an important historical role in trade relations with America. And today it is one of the largest river ports of the Iberian Peninsula.
According to legend, Seville was founded by the Greek hero Hercules. But it is known that in 207 BC on the site of today’s Seville, the Romans built the city of Italica. For seven centuries, Italica was the center of their possessions in the Western part of the Mediterranean sea, however, its power began to fall after the incursions of the Northern barbarian peoples at the beginning of the V century Long presence of Muslims (from 711 on 1248г.) left an indelible imprint in Seville and throughout Andalusia (Arabic al-Andalus). Since 1492 Seville has played a major role in the discovery and conquest of America. It was from here that Columbus went on his travels, here he returned, here, after a long journey through the world, his remains were reburied.
XVII century – is the era of artistic splendor of the city. In Seville were born artists (Murillo and Valdes Leal) and sculptures (martínez Montañés), who created extraordinary work. Seville also played an outstanding role in literature: in this city was born the undying myth of don Juan.
Twice in the XX century, Seville became the scene of world events. In 1929, the Ibero-American exhibition was held here, which gave impetus to the modernization of the city, and in 1992, the international exhibition EXPO-92, which strengthened the importance of Seville as a modern city and gave dynamism to its development.
The old town of Seville is located on the left bank of the river, in a place surrounded by a wall under the Arabs, the remains of which are still preserved. Here are the most famous neighborhoods of the city: Santa Cruz, San Bartolome, San Vincent, San Lorenzo, and El Arenal. On the right bank of the river is the historic suburb of Triana, which together with the Old town is the most interesting object for tourists.
In the Cathedral Maria de La Cede, built-in 1401—1519gg. on the former site of the mosque, there are five ships, many works of art (paintings of Murillo, Velazquez, Zurbaran, de), as well as a giant organ and burial of historical and famous personalities. Nearby is the so-called Giralda – bell tower height of 114 meters with rich patterns and ornaments, one of the symbols of Seville.
Worthy of mention also the Alcazar Palace with luxurious rooms and a garden; the exchange with the famous American archive; the building was founded by Christopher Columbus ‘ son of the College of San Telmo (the former sea school, now the residence of the Duke of Montpensier); Golden tower – 12-cipollini tower on the banks of the Guadalquivir, where once stored the gold brought from America by Christopher Columbus; and the theatre St. Francis and Archbishop’s Palace.
The main entertainment in Seville, of course, is a visit to a party with a flamenco performance, the birthplace of which is just Andalusia. Another traditional Seville entertainment is connected with horses. Horse-drawn carriages are considered a full-fledged urban mode of transport.
With the exception of Madrid, nowhere in Spain does not pass as many fights with bulls as in Seville. The largest and most famous arena rises above the Plaza de Toros de La Maestranza.
