LOCATION: Seville is located in the southern region of Spain, one hour away from the Atlantic Ocean, two hours away from Portugal, and three hours away from Africa. 

MORE THAN 10,000 YEARS OF HISTORY: Our culture has been influenced by the Tartessians, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims and lastly by the Christians.

CLIMATE: We enjoy a Mediterranean climate: a very hot and dry summer, and a very mild winter. Our average temperature throughout the year goes from 78 F to 55 F. 

TRADITIONS: Flamenco dancing, Feria de Sevilla, Holy Week (Semana Santa), Tapas, Siestas, etc. 

MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE:  Olive oil is the base and essential ingredient to our cuisine, vegetables are a must with our meals, our deserts are mostly fresh fruit, fresh oranges every day of the year, we love our wine and finally, we can't live without our "Jamón Serrano".

SEVILLE HAS UNESCO'S WORLD HERITAGE SITES: the Cathedral of Seville (it is the third largest cathedral in the world and the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world), the Alcázar Royal Palace (still in use by the King and Queen of Spain), and the Archive of Indies (where the original documents of the ships going to America when it was first discovered). 

SEVILLE HAS BEEN AN INSPIRATION TO FAMOUS WRITERS AND ARTISTS: Such as Orson Wells, Ernest Hemingway, Murillo and Cervantes.
