However, if sports is not your thing, and you wish to visit Sevilla anyway, here are some facts about the beautiful city; where to go, what to do and see.
Seville is the capital and largest city of Andalusia and the province of Seville, Spain. It is situated on the banks of the smooth and slow River Guadalquivir. The location of Seville is roughly coincident with the point where the Guadalquivir stops being useful for navigation. It is at this point that the cereal producing region and Seville has acted as a sea-port for commerce of agricultural goods produced farther west.
Sevilla has some of the largest of medieval and Gothic cathedrals which are lavishly decorated and boast in both size and character, with lots of gold too!
Monuments and places to visit in Seville are countless, it’s a blooming city with a lot to see!
Its emblematic monument, La Giralda (one of the largest Christendom cathedrals) and the Alcázar Palace, with marvellous gardens and the Santa Cruz quarter, with cramped streets, flowered balconies, richly decorated facades, hidden patios… The list continues: Casa de Pilatos (a large sixtieth century mansion) and multiple other Palaces of Mudejar (Arabic), Gothic and Renaissance heritage.
Then there is Triana, a popular and lively quarter of charming narrow streets around the prestigious church of Santa Ana.
Some say that Sevilla to Spain is like Venice to Italy, a city with depict charisma, lots of character and full of life.
