In Sevilla, you’ll be in an ideal place to attend one of our summer programs in Spain for high school students. You won’t just be in Spain; you’ll be in the culturally vibrant, historically deep-rooted, and architecturally beautiful capital city of the country’s southern region—the birthplace of flamenco, tapas, bullfighting, and other iconic Spanish traditions. Here, you’ll be surrounded by 2,200 years of Spanish history, 10 palaces, three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and numerous other attractions, all of which are set into relief by a picturesque backdrop of cobblestone streets, charming old buildings, fragrant orange trees, lively plazas, and tranquil gardens. Highlights include the largest gothic cathedral in the world and one of Spain’s most historic neighborhoods, both of which are within a mere five-minute walk from the classrooms where our high school Spanish programs take place in the summer.
The Sevilla Cathedral
Dating back to the 12th century, this magnificent building is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world, the burial site of Christopher Columbus, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated right in the heart of Sevilla’s historic city center, it’s just a five-minute walk from the classrooms where the Spanish classes for our summer programs for high school students take place. Inside, you will find a massive nave (or central hall) that’s lined with 80 side chapels, featuring a variety of artwork, tombs, carvings, and altarpieces.
Soaring more than 340 feet above Sevilla’s historic district, this dramatic bell tower is one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. It was originally built as a minaret near the end of the 12th century, as part of the immense mosque on which the Sevilla Cathedral was built. From the top of the tower, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the city below.
The Royal Alcazar
Dating back to the 14th century, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is both a majestic palace and a fairy tale-like complex of royal gardens. In the palace, you will see one of the world’s finest examples of Mudéjar-style architecture, which combines Moorish and Renaissance-erainfluences. In the gardens, you will stroll through a peaceful array of courtyards, fountains, pools, and paths lined with orange trees, flowers, and hedges—along with the occasional peacock!
Barrio de Santa Cruz
Situated just a three-minute walk from the classrooms in which Centro MundoLengua’s summer Spanish high school program classes take place, this historic neighborhood is full of narrow, winding, cobblestone streets that weave through enchanting old buildings and orange tree-dotted plazas, where you will find charming little shops selling handicrafts, ceramics, tea, and other local goods. Also known as the Old Jewish Quarter, the neighborhood used to be the part of the city where Sevilla’s Jewish inhabitants lived. Today, it’s the perfect place to walk around, soak up the ambiance, and feel like you’ve stepped back in time!
The Plaza de España
Providing a picturesque filming location for one of the Star Wars movies, this massive, semi-circular, palace-like building is surrounded by a wide-open plaza, a spectacular fountain, and a scenic canal that is spanned by arched bridges and traversed by rowboats. Right next to the Plaza, you will also find Parque de María Luisa—a 100-acre park that features beautiful gardens, elegant fountains, horse-drawn carriages, and peaceful ponds that are home to a variety of birds. Here, we and our students often go on bike rides and scavenger hunts!
Built atop an underground archeological site that preserves the ruins of an ancient Roman settlement, this modern landmark is the largest wooden structure in the entire world. Because of its uncanny resemblance to a bunch of giant mushrooms, the structure is also known as Las Setas de Sevilla (the Mushrooms of Sevilla). After seeing the underground ruins, you can visit the top of the structure, where you’ll enjoy breathtaking, panoramic views of the surrounding city.
The above list only scratches the surface of Sevilla’s many attractions. Other highlights include the following:
- Plaza de Toros: one of Spain’s most famous bullfighting rings
- Archivo de Indias: a UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses some of Spain’s most important historical archives
- Torre del Oro: a 13th-century, riverside watchtower that provides Sevilla with another iconic landmark.
- Palacio de las Dueñas: a gorgeous, 15th-century palace that was the birthplace of the famous Spanish poet Antonio Machado and features a flower-covered façade, an enchanting garden, and an eclectic mixture of Gothic and Moorish architectural influences.
- Museums: the Sevilla Museum of Fine Arts, the Flamenco Museum, the Archeological Museum of Sevilla, the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions—the list of museums in Sevilla goes on and on!
