Location & Culture

Seville has its origins in the trade routes controlled by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC.  Romans, Goths, Muslims, and Christians established their capital here before it became the most important city in Southern Europe and gateway to the Americas in the 16th century.  The commercial hub of its region, the city preserves many traces of its past and traditions.  With 700,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Flamenco Biennial and the European Film Festival to alternative theater venues, bars with live music, beautiful streets, and open spaces and, of course, one of the most respected bullrings in the world.

CIEE wants all our students to feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to succeed while studying abroad. Local CIEE staff have provided details about conditions and cultural attitudes that students with specific identities might encounter in Seville.

The Culture


  • Join in flamenco lessons, take a bike tour, participate in language exchanges with Spanish university students, practice new sports in the Guadalquivir River, and more, with new local friends. New activities are offered all the time throughout the semester.
  • Get an insider’s view of iconic places like Parque de María Luisa, Plaza de España, Catedral de Sevilla, Archivo de Indias, Hospital de los Venerables Sacerdotes, and many more amazing locations spread all around the city.
  • Participate in excursions to other Spanish cities in the region of Andalucía. In the past, students have travelled to cities such as Córdoba, Cádiz, Malaga, Jerez, etc.
  • Explore and step back centuries in time with a tour of Roman ruins in Italica or the medieval city of Carmona.
