The Province of Seville is nestled in western Andalusia in southern Spain. The provincial capital, Seville, draws millions of visitors each year with its glorious architecture, riverside nightlife and typical Andalusian ambience. In addition to the bustling city of Seville, the province is home to Sierra Norte de Sevilla Natural Park and shares Parque Nacional de Doñana with neighbouring Huelva Province.
This region of Andalusia has a warm Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and temperate winters. The thriving city of Seville is the most tempting of all the provincial gems. Seville has everything a traveller could ask for. Located on the banks of the River Guadalquivir, a boat trip is an ideal way to get to know the city. View the Spanish Renaissance style minaret tower La Giralda and Torre del Oro while gliding along the river. Stroll ancient cobbled streets discovering Seville Cathedral, Museum of Flamenco Dance, Alcázar of Seville and its UNESCO heritage treasures.
