Seville, the beautiful capital of the Andalusia region of southern Spain, is more than 2,000 years old. After its period as an ancient Phoenician, Carthaginian and Roman city, Seville was conquered by the Vandals, Visigoths, and then the Moors, who held the city for more than 500 years. The influences of these various cultures provide Seville with a distinct personality and the city features a diverse, well-preserved historical centre. Its heritage includes the remains of a Roman aqueduct and many Moorish structures, including large sections of the city walls. In spite of - or perhaps because of - these disparate influences, Seville successfully blends its varied heritage into a pleasing composite of old and new. Discount travel to Seville is very popular and the city is one of the most visited of all Spanish holiday destinations.

At the very heart of Andalusian culture, Seville personifies all that comes to mind when one thinks of Spain: flamenco, bullfights, gypsies, classical guitar and more. Flamenco is a regional artform that combines music and dance, and Seville hosts the largest flamenco festival in the world. The city is also home to the Maestranza - one of Spain's most prestigious bullfighting arenas. Seville is a city for all seasons, where you can party into the night, visit numerous galleries, museums and monuments or witness a classic bullfight.
The gargantuan Cathedral of Seville is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third largest Christian church in the world. The interior is lavishly decorated with gold and carved scenes from the life of Christ. At one time its belltower was the highest tower in the world, and it still provides panoramic views of the city. Providing a nice contrast, the Alcázar is one of Seville's best remaining examples of Moorish architecture. Originally a fort, the upper levels of the Alcázar are now used by Spain's royal family as their residence while in Seville. The Torre del Oro (Gold Tower) is a Moorish military watchtower originally built to control access to Seville via the adjacent Guadalquivir River. During the age of exploration it was used to securely store the precious metals that were periodically brought to Spain by its fleet, but is now a naval museum that showcases a variety of engravings, models, instruments and historic documents. The illustrious Museum of Art used to be a convent but now features Spanish art and sculpture, including works by the notable Seville artists Goya, Murillo, Millan, Zurbaran and Ribera.
The Plaza de España is one of Seville's most easily recognised landmarks and the epitome of Spanish Moorish Revival architecture, a huge half-circle with a large fountain in the centre and buildings that are reached by means of numerous beautiful bridges over a moat. Travellers on holidays to Seville often view the buildings by renting out a rowing boat and drifting around the moat. Book your holiday now and get the best deals through Direct Flights.
