UK to Seville, Spain
Once the centre of the entire Moorish kingdom, Seville is a city famous for its vibrant flamenco, fiestas, gypsies, bullfighting and of course, oranges. The capital of Andalusia, it lies on the banks of the Guadalquivir River in Spain's south-west corner. Attractions include the magnificent Gothic cathedral which stands on the site of an 11th-century mosque, and also the famed Alcázar, an ornate royal palace which is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Other treasures include the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz, a delightful network of whitewashed alleyways and patios, and possibly the most picturesque part of the city. Many visitors are drawn to the Plaza de Espana, one of the most impressive squares in the whole of Spain, complete with a moat, bridges, fountains and intricate tilework which depicts each of the country’s provinces.
