You're Going to Love Seville

Seville is the capital of Spain's southern Andalusia region and the top tourist destination in the south. It has a population of 1.6 million in the metropolitan area and is Spain's fourth largest city.

The city sits on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, connecting the agricultural interior of the Guadalquivir valley with the sea. This position has led the city to act as an important trading port since Roman times, and increased Seville's importance through Moorish rule, especially after new trading routes opened up to the Americas.

Seville's rich history has contributed to its architecture and culture, which made the city an important stop for wealthy 19th-century travelers on their Grand Tour of Europe. Today it has some of the most impressive sights in Spain and an exciting culture of fiestas and fun.

Seville can get very hot in summer and temperatures can top 113 degrees Fahrenheit. It is perfectly possible to visit the city during these months but do take precautions in the powerful sun and keep well hydrated. March through to May is perhaps the best time to visit the city, with the major festivals of Semana Santa and Feria de Abril taking place back to back. Fall is quieter, with warm temperatures and winter is mild and even quieter.
