Seville, the capital of the Spanish community of Andalusia, is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Its architecture is a reflection of its tumultuous history with long spells of occupation by the Romans and later the Moors.
In the 16th century, after the reconquista by the Christians the city reached its Golden Age thanks to a monopoly on trade with the New World. Many of the city's magnificent landmarks such as the Cathedral, the Royal Alcazar and Golden Tower were built earlier, in the 13th and 14th centuries.
Random Seville Highlights
The Museo de Belles Artes in Seville is one of the most important museums of fine arts in Spain. Its collection of mostly Spanish paintings and sculptures is housed in a former 17th century monastery.
The Giralda, the bell tower of the cathedral of Seville, was originally erected at the end of the 12th century as the minaret of a mosque built by the Moors. The beautiful belfry was added in the mid 16th century.
In the 12th century Seville was considered Europe's best fortified city thanks to a 6km long wall that encircled the whole of Seville. A 400 meter long section of this historic wall survived.
