"SEVILLA" Sevilla by Maggies

Sevilla Travel Guide: 2,254 reviews and 5,775 photos

My best friend Kasia, her boyfriend and I came here for one day trip from Granada. Only one day but that was enough to see how beautiful and charming the city is. I hope I'll be back here one day.
This city has been influenced by many different cultures: Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians were the first to live here. Romans conquered the city in 205 BC, soon later it became the Betica Capital. After many other dominations, in 712 the Muslims conquered Sevilla. They stayed in the city till 1248, when Fernando III of Castilla and Leon started ruling here. Then it became the capital of the "Castilla y León".

    Spain remains a destination missing from my passport. I really need to change that. Your Seville page is another look at a lovely and interesting land.
