Area Guide: Seville

Seville is the Andalucian capital and Spain's fourth-largest city. Bathed near the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, Seville was the center of Spanish exploration and trade in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Seville has a strong identity all its own, while its popular quarters, such as Santa Cruz, are as interesting as its many monuments and old buildings. There is the Alcazar, the beautiful Moorish castle-palace and the Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold), an old bastion in the Moorish walls of the city. There is also a Gothic cathedral, the third largest in Europe. This is where the tomb of Christopher Columbus lays.

The newer of Seville's sights were built for Expo '92 with a new theme park, Isla Mágica. Holy Week processions and April festival in the Spring are when Seville really comes alive.
