It’s the birthplace of Baroque painter Diego Velazquez, celebrated sculptor Luis Roldán, and the city where Ferdinand and Isabella ruled Spain in the late 15th century – not to mention, home of the ingenious barber of Seville and tempestuous Carmen. For a city of about 700,000 residents, it offers a rich array of cultural activities that includes everything from flamenco to pop concerts.
