Seville City Guide
Seville is the major city of proud Andalusia and is famous for
its bullfighters and Flamenco artists. The Moorish
influence pervading Spanish culture is esp. visible here. Seville's
immense Roman Catholic cathedral was built on top of pulled down
mosque. 'La Giralda', the mosque's remaining minaret, is
proof of this double-tracked tradition. 'Torre del Oro' (Golden
Tower) once was covered with gold. 'Archivo de las Indias'
is the main data source of Spain's involvement in the Americas complete
with original manuscripts by Columbus, Cortéz and Pizarro.
Ancient 'Alcazar' is fortified to await Armageddon and tells
tales of Seville's contested history. 'Museo del Bella Arte'
displays a fine selection of Spain's golden age. The city's 'Plaza
del Torres' is the oldest and most famous bullfighting location
in the country.
The city inspired Mozart, Rossini and Bizet
to compose operas like: "El Barbero de Sevilla" (barber
of Seville) and "Carmen".
The climate of Seville is warm and visits are worthwhile all year
round. However, a special highlight is Seville's dramatic 'Semana
Santa' (holy week) and exuberant 'Feria de Abril', a
religious celebration with processions, bull fighting and the country's
best Flamenco artists.
