Seville is the major city of Southern Spain, some 330 miles south of Madrid. It is a city thoroughly Spanish in its personality and mood. Seville was once the major seaport of the nation, through which were funneled the treasures of Spain’s huge 18th century empire in the New World. The city contains some of the most important architectural monuments in Spain.
Seville is at the center of Andalusia, a region synonymous with music, bullfights, and fiestas. To the north of Seville lies Córdoba, one of the most magnificent centers of Arab civilization; Cádiz is to the south and Granada is to the east. Today, Seville is a modern, progressive city of nearly one million people, with art galleries, museums, concert halls, libraries and athletic facilities.
