It was the only city in Spain on the edge of a navigable river but far enough away from the threat of pirates on the coast.
It became the jewel in the Spanish crown after Christopher Columbus sailed from the port in 1492 to discover America. The first sailor to sight America and shout 'land ahoy", was from Seville. After two months at sea Juan Rodriguez Bermejo was excited to see the land of San Salvador. Amerigo Vespucci was another explorer from Seville who drew maps of his voyages to the new continent. His maps were so important to spreading the news about the new continent, it was named after him.
Seville is home to cultures of the past. They bring with them their own art and view of the world.
The Spanish guitar compliments the passionate voice and graceful movements.
