A city of rich Moorish heritage, Seville is the cultural and financial center of southern Spain, and the site of numerous festivals throughout the year.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Barrio Santa Cruz and Plaza de España. Shop till you drop at Un Gato en Bicicleta and Antiguedades el Museo. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Royal Alcázar of Seville, get great views at Catedral de Sevilla, view the masterpieces at La Galeria Roja, and brush up on your military savvy at Torre del Oro.
