Sevilla is...

Seville is located in the Southeast of Spain. It is the provincial capital, seat of the government and parliament of the Comunidad Autónoma de Sevilla (Regional Government) and counts more than 700,000 inhabitants, nearly half the population of the whole province. The city of Seville is located on the plain of the Guadalquivir River which crosses the city from North to South. The river can be navigated from Seville all the way to its outlet near Sanlúcar de Barrameda, on the Atlantic coast.

In the past the port of Seville played an important role in commerce between Spain and the Americas and it remains today one of the most active river ports of the Iberian Peninsula. When you visit this city, you are in the very heart of Andalusian culture, the center of bullfighting and Flamenco music.

Take yourself time and take life easy, as Andalusians use to do, and interrupt sightseeing from time to time to have a few "tapas", those typical "small spanish dishes", and a glass of Sherry wine in one of the probably thousands of bars in this city, and consider a few of the hints on the following pages to make your stay a memorable one.

Don't miss out on the tapas. The city is credited with the invention and has more than a thousand bars where the choice of food, is virtually unlimited, from seafood to ham and sausage and from vegetable to cheese. The Sevillians actually make a meal of them, moving from bar to bar and trying one dish at a time.

Thanks to the Cruise Torre del Oro you will discover the river Guadalquivir: Millennium River, romantic and legendary, the river of the discoverers of America. It is the only navigable river in Spain.

The Guadalquivir springs from the Cazorla Mountains, in the province of Jaén. It crosses the provinces of Cordoba and Seville, and joins the Atlantic Ocean at Sanlucar de Barrameda in the province of Cadiz. The river is approximately 650 km long, and is navigable for 100 km from Seville to Sanlucar de Barrameda. The river has played an important part in the history of Seville. Guadalquivir is the Arabic name for the river, which means Big River. Its Roman name was Betis, which is the name of the street that runs parallel to the river on the Triana side. Seville was the departure point for Christopher Columbus’s fleet in his voyage to discover America. In fact, the explorer spent much time planning his trip in the Monastery of St. Mary of the Caves on the Cartuja Island.
