Seville is the southern-most of the three biggest Andalusian cities.
Sevilla represents all that is Andalucian: flamenco, horses, and toros. Once a port, this is now one of the most important cultural centers of Spain.
Seville is connected to Madrid by an excellent high speed train link (AVE) as well as by its own airport and a good road system.
The 1992 World Expo has left the city with a good infrastructure while preserving the beautiful buildings and streets and quiet alleys of the old town.
Seville was the choice of the first royal wedding of the current generation of Spanish royal family.
