About the Region


According to legend, Sevilla was founded by Hercules and its origins are linked with the Tartessian civilisation. It was called Hispalis under the Romans and Isbiliya with the Moors. The high point in its history was following the discovery of America in 1492. For all its important monuments and fascinating history, Sevilla is universally famous for being a joyous town. While the Sevillians are known for their wit and sparkle, the city itself is striking for its vitality. It is the largest town in Southern Spain, the city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro.

In Seville, the streets and plazas are places that breathe wellness, a kind of outdoor comfort that make them an extension of the home. This is because the public spaces in Seville are used for meeting and gathering places: Sevillians, tourists and you will all feel a sense of togetherness, a vital celebration of life.

There is a certain collective euphoria that is fed by the beauty, the light and that smile everyone has on their faces!
