Seville is the main artistic, cultural, commercial and financial centre of Spain, and the capital of Andalusia. The city has a friendly and warm atmosphere, and boasts old and rooted traditions. Colourful and fascinating, Seville lies on the banks of river Guadalquivir, and should be ideally visited on foot, thanks to its romantic and narrow lanes, most of which are reserved to pedestrians.
The climate is characterised by moderate temperatures that are never too rigid, something which allows to fully enjoy the numerous and wonderful parks and gardens, offering a refreshing break during the hot summer months.
In order to discover the real soul of this city, you’ll have to walk slowly through the cobbled streets, not forgetting to admire the charming facades of the old and majestic palaces and the baroque churches, and losing yourselves in the meanders of lovely flowered cloisters protected by decorated iron gates.
Yet in ancient times it was the fertility of the ground and the pleasant climate of this land, with winters never too rigid, that favoured human settlements (Phoenicians and Cartagens in the first place). Afterwards the Romans settled down in the towns of Seville and Italica. Two Roman emperors, Traiano and Adriano, were born here. After the fall of the Roman empire the Visigoths and the Muslims conquered Seville, with the latest remaining for more than 500 years, until 1248, when Ferdinand III, king of Castile and Leon, conquered the town.
