Spanish Courses in Seville
Seville’s white-washed grace, jasmine balconies, and exotic parks will convince you that romantic cities still exist. The site of a small Roman acropolis built by Julius Caesar, a thriving seat of Moorish culture, the focal point of the Spanish Renaissance, and the guardian angel of traditional Andalusian culture, Seville has never failed to spark the imagination of newcomers, great composers and writers. The Cathedral and the Giralda tower, next to the “Barrio de Santa Cruz”, defines the city center. The Guadalquivir river flows through the town. The city has lost none of this charm. Today, skillful matadors outwit raging bulls every summer Sunday. Clapping, tapping, and flamenco strumming echo through the night air, and pilgrims, zealots, and parade enthusiasts gather annually, during Holy Week and the Feria de Abril. Most of the city, including the alleyways of the old Barrio de Santa Cruz, is on the east bank, while the Barrio de Triana is on the west bank. This is one of the oldest areas in the city, birthplace of many famous flamenco singers and bullfighters. Today it has many small flamenco bars, where late at night guests join in the fun singing and dancing. The people of Seville are very friendly and it will not be difficult to make acquaintances everywhere you go. Andalusians are known to be witty with a wry sense of humor. They truly enjoy life on a daily basis, which is illustrated by the fact that the city’s bars, cafes and restaurants are always full!. A great location to learn Spanish and experience southern Spain.
