  About Seville Print

Seville is the capital of the Andalucian region and one of the largest Spanish cities. Nestled next to the Guadalquivir River, Seville’s unique landscape boasts scattered ‘white villages’ which bear innumerable architectural and artistic treasures. This region was the grandiose setting of the most brilliant centuries of Spain's history and whether you come from afar or nearby, you will certainly be enchanted by your journey into its past.

Seville‘s city center has been preserved to human scale, with no high rise buildings and architectural gems throughout. The list of great things to see is endless but a few must-sees include Seville Cathedral, La Giralda Tower and Real Alcazar of Seville which is the oldest European royal residence.

The cuisine, like that of the rest of Andalusia, is light and simple in accordance with the climate. Apart from the famous Sevillian tapas, one should not overlook the other fine regional dishes and possibly the best-known of these is gazpacho, the basis of every summer menu. Of the heavier fare is menudo (Andalusian-style tripe), spinach with chick peas, and vegetable stews. Fried fish is as also very popular and one to try is the local variant known as Soldaditos de Pavia, made with either cod or hake.
