Seville is the capital of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, and the cultural and financial centre of southern Spain. A city of just over 700,000 inhabitants (1.6 million in the metropolitan area, making it Spain’s 4th largest city), Seville is Andalucia’s top destination, with much to offer the traveler.
Climate: Its excellent situation gives Seville the privilege of an enviable year-round covenant with the climate. Defined by its Mediterranean essence, Seville is characterised by mild average annual temperatures, dry autumns and one of the highest number of sunny days per year in the whole of Europe. With average minimum temperatures of 12.2°C and an annual average temperature of 18.6°C, the city is one of the warmest in Europe. The climate of Seville has, without doubt, been one of the factors that have conditioned its history down the centuries and that of those who came and stayed here.
History: The history of the city goes back to the eighth century BC, to the biblical kingdom of Tartessos, which developed an extraordinary civilisation. Its ships sailed as far as the British Isles and ventured down the West African coast. Trade with Greeks and Phoenicians flourished and they founded prosperous factories. The Battle of Ilipa in 206 BC marked the triumph of Rome over Carthage and the Roman presence for the following seven centuries left a profound mark on the personality of Seville.
