Full description
Once upon a time, Seville was hailed as an important port of America, because everything going to the New World had to be loaded through this port. Not to mention the fact that everything coming from America (gold, silver, tobacco, cacao, vanilla, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, turkeys) had to be taxed here as well.

Seville thus became a de facto capital of the world, with people from all over the world sustaining this cultural hearth: living and trading here, exchanging goods, books, ideas, techniques, art and customs with one another.

This cultural intermingling still influences the city, although remnants of this seedier time are not always easy to find. Let the tour take you to the red light district of the 16th and 17th centuries and learn about the rogues, the local myth of El Arenal and more.  

Head over the Triana Bridge to discover an enchanting suburb. Lose yourself in the festivals and traditions of the town while you marvel at flamenco dancers and local pottery. Then take a riverside stroll as you ponder the Saint Inquisition that made a home here for over 3 centuries.
