At the beginning of the 16th century, Seville became an epicenter of the Spanish Empire due to its connecting link between the peninsula and the discovered territories of America. Seville became the most important city of the Golden Age. The city has continued to thrive because of its enormous artistic, historical and cultural legacy.
Seville is known for its three treasures, The Cathedral, the Royal Alcazars, and the Archive of the Indies. All of these places are considered World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. They can be found only minutes from the luxury hotel.
The Giralda is one of the best-known sites in the city. The bell tower of the third largest cathedral in the world, is without a doubt one that especially stands out. From the highest point, you will be able to soak in one of the greatest views of Seville.
Another one of the three constructions that form the Cathedral is the Royal Chapel. This is where the remains of King San Fernando, Alfonso X the Wise, and Christopher Columbus rest, as well as a magnificent collection of paintings by Murillo.
Within the Cathedral, one can find themselves in the Patio de los Naranjos, a place where one can become surrounded by the aroma of orange blossom and see the city’s history on its walls.
Along with the Barrio de Santa Cruz, Triana is one of the most traditional neighbourhoods in Seville. Situated on the eastern shore of the Guadalquivir River, Triana relies on its own identity and spirit. Aside from emblematic buildings and monuments, we can find insights into the artesian culture that has always characterised the neighbourhood streets.
When Alfonso XII considered the Plaza de España of Seville finished, he could do nothing more but to state, “Gentlemen, I knew that this was beautiful… But not this much.”
This immense neo-Mudejar architectural complex was constructed between 1914 and 1926 with the aim of housing the Ibero-american Exhibition of 1929.
The square is flanked by 48 benches that represent the Spanish provinces through rich illustrations in tiles.
Commonly known as the Mushrooms of Incarnation, this avant-garde monument, situated in the Plaza de la Encarnación and designed by German architect Jürgen Mayer, takes its inspirations from the vaults of the Cathedral of Seville.
It houses a restaurant, an antiquarium containing the archeological remains found there, as well as numerous events in the areas covered by the sun shades.
