Seville - Sunny Spain

The spirit of Spain

Seville, with its 715,000 inhabitants, is the fourth largest city in Spain and one of the most important industry and trade centers in the country. The Andalusian capital is known for its Mediterranean weather, and the distance to the Atlantic coast is about 100 km.

Nighlife in Spain

The inhabitants, known as Sevillanos, love life and social gatherings, such as the "Semana Santa" at Easter, the most famous Catholic celebration in Spain which turns the Old Town of Seville into a unique street festival. Seville has much to offer for night owls: favorite meeting places are the many bars and clubs along the Guadalquivir river. If you enjoy barbecues and the Mediterranean cuisine then the Restaurant Modesto is perfect for you; during summer it is pleasant to stay on the terrace and enjoy the view of the Old Town.
When it comes to shopping, Seville is pure pleasure: You can find both bargains and designer shops in the many shopping streets (e.g. Sierpes and Tetuán). The Calle Cordoba is perfect for shoe lovers.

FIRST AID City tip

Seville's landmark, the cathedral "Maria de la Sede", is located in the city center. It is the largest Gothic church in the world and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since the end of the 1980ies. Next to the Cathedral is the Giralda, the former minaret of Seville's main mosque: you can enjoy an overwhelming view across the city from the approx. 100 m high tower. One of the best known squares in Seville is the Plaza de España: the semicircular square is meant to symbolize the embrace of the South American colonies and impresses with its architecture in the Renaissance and Baroque style. Architecture enthusiasts will find many interesting buildings from different eras along the numerous twisty alleyways.
