Province of Seville travel guide

Historic Sites · Churches · Gardens
Relatively few tourists venture beyond the urban tourist attractions of the Province of Seville, thus missing the charms of a region noted for its imposing religious buildings and countryside of dense oak forests. It’s also home to culinary treats rare anywhere else in the world, including cured sausages and aniseed liquor. The Guadalquivir, one of Spain’s most important rivers, dominates the region’s landscape, creating a fertile valley filled with an endless patchwork of colorful wheat fields and olive groves. Much of this land was once in the hands of a few very wealthy landowners. Today the area remains divided up into large farm estates and thriving towns abundant with places to visit, such as ornate palaces, medieval cathedrals, and modern flamenco clubs.
