Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville, the capital city of Andalusia, has always been one of the favorite sites for tourist visiting Spain. The warm climate, which guarantees 3000 hours of sunshine a year, and the fertility of the land, had already attracted ancient peoples like the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, and the Tartessans, who named it Hispalis. Later, the Romans, and especially the Moors and Christians left their footprint as reflected in the great amount of monuments and historic buildings from different periods.

Despite its almost arrogant transformation into a modern trade center, the "Beauty of Andalusia" as Seville is also known, continues to be the heart and soul of Spain. Like no other place, it clings on to the old customs and the world-renowned stereotypes about Spain. Color, bullfighting, "real" Flamenco, and a happy go lucky way of life. The countless number of "fiestas", especially the Semana Santa (Holy Week), and the Feria de Abril (April Festival) are the most famous, but not the only examples of those traditions.

But the city is bewitched not only by the color of the "fiestas;" dancing, theater, music festivals, concerts, flamenco shows, as well as museums and art exhibitions, complete the almost endless cultural offerings in the city. A short stroll through the old town is, in itself, a new cultural experience. You can see for yourself just by taking a walk on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, towards the old town, passing the Torre del Oro (The Golden Tower), the Cathedral and the Giralda, symbol of the city. Get lost in the narrow streets of the old Jewish quarter of Santa Cruz, and go across the Reales Alcázares (Royal Fortresses), walk past the magnificent Alfonso XIII Hotel and the old "Royal Tobacco Factory" to the Plaza de España and the Parque María Luisa. While you are at it, visit the barrio de Triana, the neighborhood considered to be the birthplace of Flamenco.

The end of the day does not necessarily means the end of the "fiesta". On the contrary, Sevillians enjoy the night by having a cup of coffee, a drink, a glass of good wine or a soda and some "tapas" in some of the many taverns and wineries throughout the city. And whoever wants to make it a long night, the city has a large number of "pubs" and discos, which are open till dawn.

The school is located in the famous neighborhood of Santa Cruz, just a couple of minutes from the Cathedral and the Giralda, and within walking distance of any interesting site in the city. Bathed by light, our building is surrounded by orange trees and offers very nice views, among other things, of the picturesque horse pulled carriages, which are an integral part of the sevillian landscape.

The school organizes visits to other interesting places surrounding the city, such as Carmona, Itálica, or the Natural Park of Coto de Doñana. The weekends offer an excellent opportunity to visit other cities, such as Cadiz, Jerez, or Cordoba, or even the magnificent beaches at the Costa de la Luz approximately one hour drive away, either by car or using the well connected and affordable public transportation system.
