Sevilla is one of Spain’s major cities, both in terms of size and in terms of importance. It is the 4th largest city in the country, the undisputed capital of Andalusia (Spain’s most populous region), a major transport hub that connects the south with the rest of the country and it has over 2,000 years of recorded history written into its DNA. This is perhaps why Sevilla is the spiritual home of more Spanish traditions and customs than any other major city in the country. Horse riding and equestrian arts, passionate Flamenco folk music, Sevillanas dancing, La Feria, Semana Santa and bullfighting are all closely associated with Sevilla and its proud, local identity. And as you explore the city and discover its almost endless architectural delights in a super intensive Spanish course, you’ll really begin to appreciate just how the historical legacy of the various people who have settled here has influenced the culture and language of not just Sevilla, but of Spain itself.
There is no better place to start this list than at the Sevilla Cathedral. Built in the 12th century, the world’s largest Gothic cathedral fully deserves its UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Located only 5 minutes away from the Centro MundoLengua office, visitors are often equally amazed by its internal and external appearances. A grand central nave is lined with 80 side chapels, and the abundance of ecclesiastical artwork, including paintings, sculptures and carvings, is extremely impressive. And deep within the cathedral is the final resting place of none other than Christopher Columbus.
Adjoined to the cathedral is the single most iconic sight of the city. The 340 foot high bell tower, known fondly as “La Giralda”, was originally the minaret of the mosque built by the Moorish settlers prior to the Christian conquest of Sevilla that was subsequently incorporated into their designs for their cathedral. In this regard, La Giralda serves as a perfect visual representation of the history and culture of Sevilla, Andalusia and Spain. And anybody brave enough to climb right to the top is rewarded with some of the finest views available in the whole city.
The Real Alcázar is a 14th century palatial complex located close to the cathedral that is said to be the best place to encounter the “Mudéjar” architectural style that Andalusia is famous for. A day spent wandering along its patios, corridors, courtyards, pools, fountains and of course the palace itself is always an enjoyable affair. What’s more, this UNESCO World Heritage Site may be familiar to some visitors, as it was used as a filming location for the hit TV series “Game Of Thrones”.
Also known as Sevilla’s Old Jewish Quarter, this labyrinthine maze of cobbled streets, quaint plazas, narrow alleyways and high walls of solid stone is perhaps the most mysterious neighborhood of all Sevilla. Around every corner lies something new and unexpected, be it a live Flamenco performance, an elegantly tiled Arabic garden or an information plaque dedicated to the extraordinary lives of the residents of this Barrio through the centuries. And as you delve increasingly further into Santa Cruz, you may start to convince yourself that you are travelling back in time….
Situated opposite the 100-acre Parque de María Luisa, this giant semi-circular plaza built as recently as 1928 has quickly become one of Sevilla’s most popular landmarks. Used as a filming location for the Star Wars franchise, the Plaza de España is one of Sevilla’s most recognizable sights, and its soaring towers, arching fountain, shallow boating canals, sweeping, low bridges, cavernous archways and colorful tiled alcoves dedicated to each of Spain’s provinces offer an almost limitless amount of photo opportunities all-year round.
The curious Metropol Parasol elegantly combines both the modern and the ancient faces of Sevilla. Beneath ground lie the crumbling ruins of the Roman settlement built here two millennia ago that remain accessible to the public, and above ground sits the largest single wooden structure in the entire world. It is this structure that has earned the Metropol Parasol its nickname “Las Setas” thanks to its close resemblance to a giant mushroom, and visitors to the very top are able to enjoy the finest sunsets and nighttime views anywhere in the city.
But there is so much more. Other leading attractions and landmarks in Sevilla include:
· The Palacio de las Dueñas; a 15th century palace known for its flower-covered exterior façade, for its unusual yet attractive combination of Moorish and Gothic architectural styles and for being the birthplace of noted Spanish poet Antonio Machado.
· The Torre del Oro; a watchtower and fortification down on the banks of the Guadalquivir River built in the 13th century that glows a glorious shade of gold in the early evening.
· Plaza de Toros; the “cathedral of bullfighting” is one of the most famous bullfighting rings in the whole world.
· Archivo de Indias; yet another of Sevilla’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites located close to the cathedral that houses some of the country’s most important historical documents, archives and records
· And a huge array of fabulous museums, including, but not limited to, the Sevilla Museum of Fine Arts, the Flamenco Museum, the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions and the Archeological Museum of Sevilla.
