From biblical legend to legendary nightlife, Sevilla is a sophisticated city made for MICE.
According to legend Hercules founded Sevilla. While this may not be so Sevilla is a city that eats well, eats late and may party till dawn. And…. if the nightlife tires you what better way to restore yourself than a traditional Hamman in the Arab Baths followed by a wonderful massage.
Sevilla is a city that impresses with its history, parks, culture, cuisine, venues and modern outlook – no wonder Lamborghini held a car launch in the amazing Alfonso X111.
This is a city of religions – past Islamic, Jewish and Christian cultures have all left their historical mark on the buildings, in the music and food. It is also the city of Opera – Don Juan, Carmen and Figaro.
And, in Spring time no one can miss that wonderful scent of sun soaked orange blossom drifting in the breeze.
No wonder that Sevilla is universally renowned for being a joyous town while Sevillians are known for their wit and a vitality that matches that of the city. Even the city traffic, which flows so well, is a comparative pleasure and you can go from city centre to countryside calm in twenty minutes.
Sevilla is linked to the sea via the Guadalquivir river and forever linked to Europe’s discovery of the Americas. The discovery of the Americas made Sevilla a great and wealthy trading city and that wealth was reflected in the creation of many beautiful and elegant buildings; the most recent of which was the Hotel Alfonso X111 built because of the Americas discovery but almost five centuries afterwards.
The Alfonso X111 was built for the great American Exposition of 1929 – a wonderfully elegant emblematic hotel recently refurbished at a cost of 20 million Euros.
