Capital of Andalusia, Sevilla was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. Though the city preserves its past, modern Sevilla is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of about 700,000 Sevilla offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco to classical, pop, and jazz concerts.
