The city of Seville is located on the plains of the River Guadalquivir. The inhabitants of this city are known as Sevillanos or Sevillanas. It is the 4th largest city in Spain and is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sights namely, the Alcazar Palace Complex, the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies. It is a city that has both looks and personality which it gets from the civilizations that have had a hand in shaping it into the city it is today, be it the Roman ruins, memories of the Moorish era or the colonial period. The city of Seville is said to be about 2,200 years old and is a well preserved historical center. The climate in Seville is very much like the usual Mediterranean climates with dry summers and wet winters.
