The capital of Andalusia

Seville is located more inland compared to the other coastal towns. Seville is the fourth largest city in Spain and it is considered to be an Andalusian metropolis. One of the longest rivers in the country called the ‘Guadalquivir’ runs right through the city and it can coincidentally serve as a guide to you. UNESCO has identified 3 main World Heritage Sites in Seville to include the Alcazar, the world’s largest Gothic Cathedral and the Archivo de Indias. Most of the sights in this city are located on the east bank of this river such as the Santa Maria de la Sede cathedral with its Giralda tower (coincidentally the largest gothic building in the world), the Reales Alcazar de Sevilla palace with its vast gardens, and the buzzing Santa Cruz neighbourhood with its hidden patios and colourful balconies. Also visit the Plaza de Espana Square for a mind-blowing semi-circular fusion between Renaissance, Moorish and Spanish architectures. On the west bank of the river one can visit the former Expo 92 buildings and the Isla Magica theme park. Seville is most famous for its flamenco shows and its tapas bars, so try to pop into one of each during your visit. The modern design object called ‘Metropol Parasol’ is also recognised internationally for being the largest wooden structure in the world. It is said that the tapas-style food originates from the city with a variety of over a thousand different eateries. Sevillians make a meal of the small dishes, hopping from one bar to the next to try out the various specialities, one dish at a time.
