Welcome to Seville, the capital of Andalusia and Spain's fourth-largest city. The city lies on both banks of the Guadalquivir River, southwest of the Iberian Peninsula, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from the Atlantic Ocean. Founded as a Roman town, Seville is approximately 2,200 years old. Its historical center, famous for the Alcázar Royal Palace, the Cathedral, and the General Archive of the Indies – UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is the largest in Spain and, along with Venice and Genoa's, one of the largest in Europe.
