Sevilla, one of three of Andalucia's landlocked provinces, is world-famous for one place. That is the city of Sevilla, the capital of both the province and the autonomous region of Andalucia. It has an illustrious history - assisted by being the only inland port in Spain, with many ancient monuments, connections to the Americas, and a style, elegance and beauty that is unmatched in Spain. At any time of the year it is a delight to visit, but especially so during the famed Feria de Abril when the streets come alive with color and sound. Men in their country outfits, women in those glorious flamenco-style dresses, and horses and horse-drawn carriages everywhere. All-in-all, an eclectic experience in this otherwise modern world. Besides Sevilla, nearby Santiponce has the ruins of the Roman city of Italica, Carmona has an even more ancient history, and Ecija boasts more than its fair share of mansions, churches and convents. This guide contains all the details you will need to prepare for a visit, with the best hotels and restaurants, the walks and hikes, sights to see, the history and culture. Plus many, many photos of all the attractions here.
