Situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville has a rich Moorish heritage and used to be a prosperous port that carried out the trade with the Americas.
The streets and squares in the historic quarter of the capital of Andalusia are lively and busy. They treasure many constructions that have the World Heritage designation, and many districts are full of traditional culture, like Triana and La Macarena.
Seville is a prominent business and service center in the south of Spain and has many hotels distributed all over the city which enables visitors to discover endless attractions. Museums and art centers, theme parks, cinemas, theatres, and clubs are some of the many leisure options that a great city like Seville holds. Without forgetting, of course, the numerous terraces, inns, and bars where visitors can practice one of the most deeply-rooted and tasty traditions in the city: «Going out for tapas».
The visitor will also discover the immense natural wealth of this region, which sits halfway between two continents, in natural treasures such as the Doñana Nature Reserve, declared a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, and the Sierra Norte Nature Reserve. They will be the ideal setting for practicing outdoor sports, including hiking, horse riding, and cycling routes.
