Seville, the capital city of Andalusia, is one of the world’s favorite destinations among tourists and students. Our city is located in southern Spain and you can enjoy more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year. Being the cradle of flamenco and famous thanks to its historical tradition, heritage, festivals and gastronomy, Seville offers to students an unique environment to learn Spanish by meeting its people and living immersed in its culture.
Seville has become a reference in tradition and Spanish popular culture thanks to its worldwide-known festivals such as the Feria de Abril (April’s Fair), Easter or Bullfighting. However, many other cultural events offer an attractive leisure and nightlife agenda in Seville (the Seville European Film Festival, the Flamenco Biennial, or Territorios Sevilla International Music Festival are just a few examples).
A monumental city par excellence, Seville is famous due to its Cathedral, the Royal Alcazar and the Archive of the Indies, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Current highlights include its parks, squares, numerous churches, museums and so on, where visitors can walk around while learning more about its history. Seville is a flat city where distances are not so great, so it’s very easy to get around and invites visitors to discover its beautiful neighborhoods full of narrow streets and to liven up the trip by tasting the famous “tapas”.
Just an hour’s drive from Seville are the Cadiz and Huelva beaches, Doñana Nature Reserve, and many other good options for excursions to nearby areas.
And best of all is that Seville, a happy and welcoming southern city, is known for the familiarity of its people in their daily affairs, the perfect city to feel like at home!
