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.
