Seville A City Of Small Mysteries

Seville, Spain

The city of Seville is the artistic, cultural and financial capital of southern Spain. Being over 2,000 years old, the city has a distinct character with a well-preserved historical centre.

The old quarter of the ambient city contains Moorish and Gothic buildings that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One such treasure is the distinctive Cathedral of Seville, which is one of the largest of all the Gothic cathedrals in the world. The landmark contains quirky features such as ramps rather than stairs that would allow the Muezzin to ride to the top on horseback, and the cathedral is filled with carved scenes from the life of Christ.

Whilst in Seville a trip to the museums is a must, as the City boasts artworks by famous masters such as Velázquez, Murillo and Valdés Leal Museum of FiA. The Museum of Fine Arts of Seville has an important collection by artists from the Baroque period, and has been named the most important Spanish art gallery after the Prado Museum in Madrid.




Whilst staying in Seville don't miss out on the local tapas. The city is famous for this tradition and has more than a thousand bars where the choice and quality of food is invariably superb. Tucked away in side alleys you can move from bar to bar to get a broad selection of seafood, ham, sausage, and cheese.


At Easter time the City of Seville comes alive with celebrations for the Semana Santa and La Feria de Sevilla. The two festivals are well known for their beautiful processions during Holy Week and the colourful and lively fair held two weeks after. Casetas and marquees are set up by local families and businesses, ready for a week of dancing, drinking, and socialising! The people wear costumes and dance to flamenco music- putting you at the very heart of Andalusian culture.
