Location & Culture

Famous for Flamenco dancing, Seville also features a rare fusion of Christian, Jewish and Muslim influences.

Old-world charm, quirky buildings, and cobblestone streets give Seville a flavor all its own. Here’s a unique opportunity to live in a historic, traditional Spanish city without tons of tourists. Although large enough to support lots of business, culture and art, it still retains a small-town community feel. It’s pedestrian-friendly and easy to navigate.

What can you do for fun? Bike along the scenic Guadalquivir River. People-watch in sidewalk cafés. Stroll through grand outdoor plazas. Visit exotic food markets and artisan fairs. Catch some shade — or perhaps a siesta? — under groves of orange trees in the lush Parque de María Luisa gardens. Tour historic landmarks with classmates and in your free time.

Striking architecture is all around, but certain landmarks anchor with city center. The Real Alcázar is the real deal — a royal palace complete with fountains and fancy gardens. Built in the 7th century, it still hosts the royal family when they’re in town. The sprawling landmark has been built up over the ages, with architectural styles ranging from Gothic to Baroque to Mudéjar, a fusion of Muslim and Christian artistic embellishments unique to Andalusia.

Hosting a range of popular activities from the Flamenco Biennial to the European Film Festival, Seville lives up to its reputation as a cultural mecca.
