Seville is the center of one of the most interesting and authentic Spanish provinces — Andalusia. Spectacular bullfighting and incendiary flamenco were born here. The very spirit of the Spanish south lives here and the ancient traditions of our 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 Cordoba Caliphate. Many unique architectural monuments have been preserved since those times. Tourists can admire Catholic churches built on the site of Moorish mosques, walk through historical neighborhoods and inspect Arab towers on the banks of the Guadalquivir River. In the XVII century, Seville was the main port of the Spanish Empire. Expeditions to the New World sailed from here. In many ways, the modern architectural appearance of the city was formed at that time.
