Seville is a collage of histories and stories. It is glowing and whimsical. It is the capital of Andalucía and it was almost the capital of Spain. It is the bridge that connects with the Americas and the meeting point with Africa. And even though it is so important, we should never forget that its strength comes from the hearts of the people.
Antonio Gala once said that “it’s not so bad that the Sevillians think that they have the most beautiful city in the world. The worst thing is that they might be right”. With this simple statement the well-known author – Cordovan by adoption – defined the personality of Seville and its inhabitants, the Sevillians.
The author of The Turkish Passion probably has a point. The capital of Andalusia is charming and fragrant, amusing and luminous, religious and festive at the same time. A city where spring is brighter than the Sun, and the orange blossom hypnotises even the most jaded traveller. Which captivates with its beauty and irresistible allure A pretty and dainty place, sometimes vain, which is capable of defeating the most courageous. An old saying claimed that "even the rain in Seville is wonderful", and it is true.
The city of the Guadalquivir also epitomises the typical stereotypes of the “Spanish” and “Andalusian” like no other place, while also offering so many artistic, cultural, leisure and tourist attractions that it would take too long to list them all. However, you can’t miss the Tower of Gold and the Muslim walls; the Reales Alcázares, the oldest royal palace in Europe; Seville Cathedral, the largest in the word; the famous Giralda, which is the bell tower of the Cathedral, and, of course, a ride in a horse-drawn carriage in María Luisa Park and the iconic Plaza España, a tribute to the art and lands of Spain.
The Guardian once published an article on the ancient Hispalis: “Seville is a city that defies literature. It is simply one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with a history that spans centuries and wonderful monuments and buildings beside lush parks near the serene Guadalquivir river, which flows through the city centre”.
‘Seville, where I still am, is pagan, Nietzschean, Apollonian, Dionysian, Gioconda; it’s even socialist (which shows that nothing and no one is perfect) and it offers so much.’
