A day in Seville
Seville is a municipality and a city of Spain, capital of the province of the same name and autonomous community of Andalusia.
Its historic center is the largest in Spain and one of the three largest in Europe along with those of Venice and Genoa, with 3.94 square kilometers.
Its historical and monumental heritage and its various scenic and cultural spaces constitute it as a recipient of national and international tourism, in fact it is the third most visited capital in Spain, after Barcelona and Madrid. Among its most representative monuments are the cathedral (which includes the Giralda), the Alcazar, the Archivo de Indias and the Torre del Oro, of which the first three were declared World Heritage by UNESCO together in 1987 .
The port of Seville, located about 70 km from the Atlantic Ocean, is the only seaport of Spain in an inland city, as the Guadalquivir river is navigable from its mouth in Sanlucar de Barrameda to the Spanish capital.
With the celebration of the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, the city experienced a great urban development characterized by the creation of parks and the construction of buildings designed for this event, such as the María Luisa Park or Plaza de España. The 1992 universal exposition left a significant improvement in infrastructure as a legacy in the city, such as the enclosure in which the exhibition took place and which today houses the Isla Mágica theme and recreational park.
In 2014 important projects were carried out in the city, such as the Torre Cajasol, the Puerto Delicias project or the Nuevo Mundo Aquarium.
The University of Seville, founded in 1505. Seville has awakened from ancient times, and especially during the era of Romanticism, the evocation of European artists, who see it as a picturesque and wonderful place. After the last studies, a total of 150 works have been identified set in this city, such as La Forza del Destino, Carmen, The Barber of Seville, Don Giovanni or The Marriage of Figaro.
