With a population of more than 700,000, Seville is the fourth largest city in Spain and capital of the Andalusia region. Straddling the Guadalquivir River, it features twisting streets and narrow lanes and an abundance of attractions. The Cathedral and Giralda Tower, the most visited site in Seville, is the third largest cathedral in the world, behind St. Peters in Rome and St. Paul's in England. Other attractions include the Parque Maria Luisa, a vast parkland, and the Plaza de España, the centerpiece of the city's famous 1929 Exposition.
