About Seville

Seville is the centre of one of Spain’s most interesting and authentic provinces, Andalucía. It is the birthplace of spectacular bullfighting and fiery flamenco. The very spirit of the Spanish south lives here and the ancient traditions of its ancestors are carefully preserved.

Seville was founded by the Phoenicians in the III millennium BC, then for a long time the city was a Roman colony. In the Middle Ages it was under the protectorate of the Caliphate of Cordoba. Many unique architectural monuments have survived from those times. Tourists can admire Catholic temples built on the site of Moorish mosques, walk through the historic neighbourhoods and see the Arab towers on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. In the 17th century, Seville was the main port of the Spanish Empire. Expeditions to the New World sailed from here. In many respects, the modern architectural appearance of the city was formed at that time.

Santa Cruz, Seville

A historic quarter that starts right at the walls of the Alcázar of Seville. It was originally inhabited by Jews, but in the 14th century all the local synagogues were converted into Catholic churches. Santa Cruz is a tangle of narrow stone streets, brightly coloured houses, lush Mediterranean vegetation and a lingering spirit of the past. The city’s most important sights are located here.


A former gypsy neighbourhood behind the Guadalquivir River, where flamenco dancers mostly settled. The neighbourhood is characterised by a somewhat chaotic, noisy and cheerful atmosphere. There are many traditional tablao bars where talented guitarists, singers and dancers perform. One of the neighbourhood’s central historical structures is the Cartesian Monastery.

Seville Museum of Fine Arts

An art gallery that is considered one of the most important in Spain. Here you can admire the paintings of E. Murillo, J. Roelas, F. Surbaran, and G. Martinez.

The basis of the museum collection is made up of works of art from churches and other religious institutions, so the exposition is dominated by divine themes.

Tablao Flamenco Los Gallos

1299 reviews
A unique art combining dance, singing and acting that originated in southern Spain and has become its national treasure. The origins of flamenco go back to the ancient Moorish musical culture. They also absorbed the colourful Gypsy style (it is the Gypsies that many researchers consider the founders of flamenco). In the 18th century, the dance emerged from the darkness of semi-underground bars and firmly won the official stages and hearts of Spaniards, and later the rest of the world.
