Come to #Seville

Seville is one of the most important cities in southern Europe. Its geostrategic situation halfway across Africa and the Mediterranean and excellently connected by air, sea and land to Europe is a reference urban nucleus difficult to compare. Its air connections, the high-capacity highways that connect it with the capital of Spain and with the Costa del Sol, the high-speed railway lines and its modern airport, are important arguments for the development of the congresses.

 

History

 

Although the foundation of Seville is attributed to Hercules, it is believed that the Tartessos (specifically the Turdetan people) were founded around the ninth century BC. Later it is occupied by Phoenicians and Carthaginians, although it is the Romans who end up settled after arriving in 206 BC under the orders of General Scipio. It was the Muslims who gave it the name of Ishbiliya, which later derived in Shbiya to end up being as it is now known, Seville. The discovery of the New World in 1492 was very significant for the city, which would become the European port of departure for America and one of the most populated cities in Europe.

 

In Seville, in addition to visiting its magnificent monumental and artistic heritage, you can enjoy its cultural offer and its traditions.
