Seville - tapas and flamenco
It is said the only thing missing in Seville is the ocean. This beautiful city boasts a wealth of monuments, including the Mezquita, the most beautiful mosque built by the moors and the great Alcazar cathedral.
The historic centre of Seville is located on the left bank of the river in a spot previously protected by the Almohade wall, of which some ruins remain today. It contains some of the most famous neighbourhoods of the city such as Santa Cruz, San Bartolomé, San Vicente, San Lorenzo and El Arenal. On the right bank of the river stands the Arrabal suburb. These are the most interesting areas for the traveller to visit. The rest of the city is built around a series of expansion projects, the most important being that carried our for the Latin American Exhibition of 1929, built along the southern stretch of the Guadalquivir River. In 1992, near the Cartuja Monastery, a new area was developed to the west of the city where Expo 92 was held.
