About the City

Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River in the heart of Andalucía, this enchanting capital city has become one of the most popular study abroad destinations in Spain. After Columbus landed in the Americas in 1492, Sevilla served as the headquarters for all Spanish trade with the New World. The city’s importance throughout history is reflected in its monumental landmarks, including its cathedral and royal palaces. Sevilla is also famous for its colorful landscape, including many shades of green from the vast fields of olive trees, orange from the endless orange groves and brown from its Moorish palms. Its clear, deep blue sky and flat landscape has earned it the nickname The City of Reflections.
