Seville Spain, the capital city of Andalusia, and Spain's 4th largest city. The city's Christian Gothic and Baroque style 'Catedral de Santa María de la Sede', is the largest in Spain,and the symbol of the city, it's Islamic style bell tower 'La Giralda', one of the best known towers in the world. A converted minaret, the tower is 70 meters high and provides a splendid viewpoint over the city.

Complimenting the cathedral is the splendor of the Almohade Alcázar, a palace still in use by members of the Spanish royal family, Plaza de España located in the Parque de María Luisa, and The Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza de Caballería de Sevilla the oldest bullring in Spain. To the east of the Alcázar lies the picturesque Barrio de Santa Cruz, which in Arab times was the Jewish quarter (Judería). It is now a district of flower-decked squares and streets, with many attractive patios, bars and restaurants.

As a major city Seville is fairly crowded but still maintains a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. April sees The Plaza de Toros become the site of the most well-known bullfighting festival in the world, the annual Feria de Abril, and the Seville river, is the venue for Velá (night) of Santa Ana, held in the Triana neighborhood from the 24th, to the 26th of July.
