Destination Seville is the capital city of the southern Spanish region of Andalusia. Located on the banks of the Gudalquivir River, its stunning beauty - with fantastic examples of Roman, Moorish, gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture - earned it a place on the historic Grand Tour of Europe and today it remains one of the most popular destinations in Spain. It is a city of rich tradition and heritage and is known for some of the most passionate festivals in the country. It is also the hottest large city on the entire continent - with summer temperatures of 40ºC not unheard of and daily highs in the mid to high thirties. Seville has its own international airport and is approximately three hours' flight from the United Kingdom.

Seville is the birthplace of many of Spain's great traditions and art forms - including flamenco and bullfighting - both of which are still performed at venues across the city. It is a gourmand's paradise - with a great selection of tapas restaurants - and has a fantastic nightlife scene. Visitors can spend their days wandering the narrow lanes of the city's medieval centre where such magnificent sites as the Seville Cathedral, the Real Alcazar Palace, the Giralda Bell tower and the Plaza de Espana town square are to be seen. Guided tours of the city are available and there is a great range of museums offering a fine insight into Seville's history. Seville is a great destination for romantic city breaks, cultural holidays and party trips.
