The Spanish city of Seville dates back to the 8th century BC and is the capital of the county's southern region, Andalusia. The city was built on the River Guadalquvir's plain and is divided into 11 districts, home to a rich tapestry of history, cuisine, culture and architecture. Hiring a car from Seville Airport means you can tour Casco Antiguo, Seville's old quarter. Just 10 minutes away, this historic area is home to the city's most iconic landmarks. The city's royal palace, the Alcázar, is a glorious piece of Mudéjar architecture and is still the official Seville residence for the monarchy. Seville Cathedral is the largest gothic structure in Europe, while the world's oldest tapas bar, Rinconcillo, is still going strong and well worth a visit.
