What to see in Seville

Seville is known for its many cultural spaces and rich variety of landmarks. We can start by talking about the Cathedral, which boasts one of the city's emblems: the Giralda. This is what Sevillians call the 100-metre (328 ft) tall bell tower of the Cathedral of Santa María, which includes the Giraldillo weather vane that crowns the monument.

Alongside the Cathedral lies the General Archive of the Indies, one of the greatest examples of Spanish renaissance architecture, housing a huge and valuable collection of historical documents on the expeditions of the Spanish Empire to the Americas.

Another symbol of Seville is the Torre del Oro situated on the banks of the River Guadalquivir. Built in the 13th century, it originally belonged to a wall that joined it to the Torre de la Plata.

The navigable River Guadalquivir deserves a mention of its own, making Seville the only inland port in Spain. Thanks to the world expositions held in 1929 and 1992, the city has experienced some important urban development, such as the María Luisa Park and the Plaza de España in the first expo, and Isla de La Cartuja (Island of the Carthusians) in the more recent one.
