May 27, 2008
Seville, the capital city of Andalusia in the province of Sevilla is known as the artistic, cultural and financial capital of the South of Spain. It has a natural beauty, being found on the River Guadalquivir and a rich history of over two thousand years. It is a vibrant town with a reputation of being lively and colorful.

Seville is home to a number of monuments that reflect its long and rich history. It is home to the minaret of La Giralda, which is located in the Cathedral of Seville, one of the biggest cathedrals in the Christian world. The cathedral was built between the years 1401 and 1519. It contains the longest nave in Spain and is built in a medieval and Gothic style. It was built where the city's mosque was situated and it used parts of the mosque in its construction. It also features large amounts of gold in its extravagant decorations. It is a must-see from an architectural and historic point of view. The minaret is now the bell tower of the Cathedral and is a symbol of Seville.

The city also houses the Alcazar Palace which was a Moorish palace whose building began in the 14th century. It is worthwhile to visit the Casa de Pilatos, the beautiful 16th century palace; the Torro del Oro, the 13th century tower whose top, it is rumored was once covered in gold; the old Town Hall; the Archive of the Indies and the Museum of Fine Arts. One of the most charming areas of Seville is the old Jewish Quarter. Full of small winding streets, it surrounds the area of the Cathedral. The Parque Maria Luisa was built in 1929 and contains many delightful monuments and museums. There are many other monuments and beautiful buildings in Seville that are worthwhile to visit.

The nightlife in Seville is vibrant and fun. No other city in Europe has as many bars per capita, as Seville does. If you are visiting during the summer months, you should visit Isla Cartuja at night and you can find many open-air discos. There are a number of annual festivals and other entertainment that happens during the year in Seville.

Due to Seville's popularity as a tourist destination, there are many accommodation options available and tourists to the area can choose from a traditional hotel to a modernized palace. There are approximately 20,000 accommodation options for visitors so it is likely that you will find the ideal accommodation to suit your budget and style.

You can choose to stay in a five star luxury palace-style hotel or if you are traveling on a tighter budget, you can elect to sleep in a simple and affordable guest house. Many of these are townhouses in an Andalusian style that have been made into holiday accommodation rentals. They have charming courtyards and are a pleasure to stay in. As Seville is a popular all-round holiday destination, accommodation fills up relatively quickly; therefore, make sure that you book long in advance.
