Who can fail to fall for the charm of this capital city on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, especially when its hundreds of orange trees are in flower and the nights are full of magic.
Now a prosperous hub of commercial and industrial activity and the center of the agricultural region, Seville is steeped in beauty and impressive monuments dating back many centuries. The Moors are to thank for many marvelous examples of architecture including the gothic Cathedral with the Giralda, an Arabic minaret transformed into a Christian bell tower.
Seville is a historical masterpiece full of Islamic monuments, gardens and flamenco festivals – you can’t miss the large Cathedral – look for the weathervane on its top that represents Faith, symbol of this lovely city.
