Flights to/ from Seville
Seville is approximately 2,200 years old. The passage of the various civilisations instrumental in its growth has left the city with a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical centre.
The city was known from Roman times as Hispalis. Important archaeological remains also exist in the nearby towns of Santiponce (Italica) and Carmona.
Seville was taken by the Moors, Muslims from North of Africa, during the conquest of Hispalis in 712. It was the capital for the kings of the Umayyad Caliphate, the Almoravid dynasty first and after the Almohad dynasty from the 8th to 13th centuries.
The Moorish urban influences continued and are present in contemporary Seville, for instance in the custom of decorating with herbaje and small fountains the courtyards of the houses.
In 1247, the Christian King Ferdinand III of Castile and Leon began the conquest of Andalusia. He seized Seville for fifteen months. The city surrendered on 23 November 1248.
Following the 1492 Christopher Columbus expedition to the New World trade in the West Indies began to profit the city, as all goods imported from the New World had to pass through Seville before being distributed throughout the rest of Spain.
A 'golden age of development' commenced in Seville, due to its being the only port awarded the royal monopoly for trade with the growing Spanish colonies in the Americas and the influx of riches from them.
Today, Seville is the capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia. It hosts the Spanish Institute for Fat Research and is located in the middle of the Olive growing areas of Spain.
