CIEE-Seville: Summer Language and Culture

Seville is the political, religious, cultural and intellectual capital of Andalucia. The city's cathedral and the royal Alcazar Palace, located in the historic city center, exhibit the influences of the Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures that flourished in Sevilla until the late 15th century. Ferdinand and Isabella sent Columbus, Magellan and Vespucci to the new world from the banks of the Guadalquivir River.
