Day visit to Sevilla

Sevilla, monumental and historical city. Port of America

The historical and monumental heritage of Sevilla and its diverse scenic and cultural spaces make of it the magnificent city that it is, receiving national and international tourism. In fact it is the third most visited capital of Spain, after Barcelona and Madrid. Among its most representative monuments there are the Giralda, the Alcazar, the Archives of the Indies and the ‘Torre del Oro’, of which the first three have been declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco jointly in 1987.

The port of Seville is located about 80 km from the Atlantic Ocean existent is the only seaport of Spain in an inland city, as the Guadalquivir River is navigable from its mouth in Sanlúcar de Barrameda to the Seville capital.  The city has also developed a great transportation network by road and rail, as well as the Seville International Airport.

Following the 1492 Christopher Columbus expedition to the New World (from the port of Palos de la Frontera), the results from his claiming territory and trade for the Crown of Castile (incipient Spain) in the West Indies began to profit the city, as all goods imported from the New World had to pass through the ‘Casa de Contratacion’ before being distributed throughout the rest of Spain. A ‘golden age of development’ commenced in Seville, due to its being the only port awarded the royal monopoly for trade with the growing Spanish colonies in the Americas and the influx of riches from them.

With the celebration of the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, the city underwent a great urban development marked by the creation of parks and the construction of buildings designed for such an event, such as the María Luisa Park or the Plaza de España. The 1992 World Exposition left behind a significant infrastructure improvement, mainly in terrestrial and aeronautical communications, notably the AVE railway access to Santa Justa station.

Likewise, the area of the 1992 Expo was adapted as the headquarters of the Parque Tecnológico Cartuja 93, headquarters of the University of Seville and the theme park and leisure Isla Mágica.
