History of Seville

Seville is a beautiful historic city situated in Andalucía, with the River Guadalquivir going through it, in the southwest Iberian Peninsula. It has 3 UNESCO world heritage sites – The Alcázar palace complex, The Cathedral & The General Archive of the Indies. 

Seville holds the only river port in Spain, The Seville Harbour is situated around 80km from the Atlantic Ocean. 

Seville was conquered by the Moors, during 712 in the conquest of Hispalis. You can find many Moorish urban influences present in Seville, with the custom of decorating with small fountains in the courtyards and plants around the houses. However, most of the buildings of the Moorish aesthetic belong to the Múdejar style of Islamic art, inspired by the Arabic style and developed under the Christian Rule. 

The Seville Cathedral was built during the 15th Century with Gothic Architecture.

The Bridge of Isabel II or Bridge of Triana, runs along the River Guadalquivir connecting the Triana neighbourhood; this metal arch bridge was beautifully built and completed in 1852.  

Unlike many other areas in Spain, Seville is very flat with barely any mountains. The city has orange trees planted throughout, although we would not recommend you eat one as they are very sour, these oranges are used to make marmalade.

One of the most famous landmarks ¨the Giralda¨, which is the bell tower of the Seville Cathedral, was the tallest building in Seville until they built the Pelli Tower, this upset many Sevillians when it was finished in 2015.
