See traditional bull fights in the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza or dance flamenco in the dance style's birthplace. Seville, as the capital of Andalusia, is situated in Spain's beautiful south lands. The city's stunning architecture is further highlighted by the winding Guadalquivir River that weaves in and out of its historic buildings. Seville is also famous for its festivals, and study abroaders over the spring semester will be delighted to participate in traditional celebrations of Semana Santa (holy week) and La Feria de Abril in April.
