SEVILLE HAS THE X FACTOR
A historic yet modern, cosmopolitan capital, Seville is much more than simply a city you should visit. It offers visitors the ideal setting for vacational tourism - with its pleasant Mediterranean climate - in addition to commercial and business tourism.
Seville is its meandering, legendary old quarter, which is one of the largest in Europe. It is brimming with monuments that are direct legacies of the different cultures who decided to live in the city through history. The city's impressive Gothic cathedral , coupled with its inseparable minaret (the Giralda), has been an impassable watchman through history.
Seville is its long-standing, unmoveable Guadalquivir River, which reflects the radiance of the city, while it gives rein its seafaring elements, with the unmistakable Albarrana tower, the Torre del Oro, observing it from the left.
Seville is the happy, friendly nature of its people who are eager to adapt this traditional legacy they live with every day through the celebration of the city's famous, popular "fiestas", Holy Week and the "Feria de Abril" (April Fair), which are capable of attracting thousands of visitors from around the world each year.
Seville is its rich gastronomy, seasoned with a wide range of cultural activities available to all those who decide to immerse themselves in its hospitality. The city has a plethora of theatres, with the Teatro de La Maestranza and the Lope de Vega standing out, and museums that are home to some of the most well-known works of various, excellent painters who were born in the city, with the Museo de Bellas Artes being a particular highlight. Here, you can contemplate notable collections, such as that dedicated to the school of "sevillana" painting from the 17th Century, which is of great importance in the history of Spanish culture and includes paintings by essential artists like Murillo, Velázquez, Zurbarán and Valdés Leal. You will encounter wonderful spaces of past legacies, such as the resplendent Plaza de España, which is an architectural monument of incomparable patrimonial value that emerged from the "Exposición Iberoamericana" of the year 1929. There are avant-garde structures as well, including the Metropol Parasol Structure, which is more popularly known as the "Setas de la Encarnación" (the Mushrooms of Incarnation in English), and others that present a completely renovated aspect, such as the Alameda de Hércules. The city also boasts fully established business centres within both the Spanish and European spheres, monopolised by the splendid, recently extended Congress and Exhibition Centre, Fibes Sevilla.
Over and above everything the city has to offer, we should highlight the Seville's excellent transport infrastructure which was constructed and renovated mainly for the celebration of the World's Fair in 1992, during which the Fifth Centenary of the Discovery of America was commemorated. These improvements completely transformed the transport system from an urban point of view, making the city easily accessible from different ring roads and motorways that converge nearby, in addition to providing multiple high-speed train links, with the Santa Justa AVE Station being very close to this historic centre. Seville's San Pablo Airport also provides the city and region with excellent national and international air links, providing direct flights to other region capitals on the Iberian Peninsula and important European capitals.
