The Andalusian capital is connected with the rest of the region by a wide communication network that makes it very close from Cadiz, Cordoba and Málaga. Sevilla also has its own airport “Sevilla San Pablo” at 10 km away from the city, which is the second Andalusian airport behind Málaga. Designed by the architect Rafael Moneo, it constitutes one of the most prominent examples in the contemporaneous architecture of the city. It is well-connected to the main Spanish cities and receives about 20% of international passengers. Then, you can take the bus line called “Especial Aeropuerto” that connects the arrivals hall with the city centre.

The airport of Sevilla is mainly served by companies from France, Italy, Holland and England.

Seville is also one of the first high speed line that was built in Spain after Madrid. The train station, Sevilla-Santa Justa, is connected with high-speed lines to Cordoba, Madrid, Zaragoza, Barcelona and Malaga.

Andalusia was occupied by Moors for about 800 years and has been a cultural centre long before. Its favorised climate made Phoenicians and Carthaginians settle here. Later came Romans, and two of their emperors, Trajan and Hadrian, were born here.
