The Spanish saying says: ‘If you haven’t  seen Seville, you have seen nothing‘ (‘Quien no ha visto Sevilla, no ha visto maravilla’). The capital of Andalucia, Seville, is the fourth biggest city in Spain with more than 660 thousand inhabitants. The river Guadalquivir flows through the city and 85 km later enters the Atlantic. It is also the capital of  the Spanish flamenco and corrida.
