Seville, beautiful and diverse

The Sierra de Montellano, also known as the Sierra de San Pablo, on whose slopes the town is located, is a limestone formation that reaches an altitude of up to 600 m, and which preserves natural vegetation of great interest for a town whose surrounding area is occupied largely by arable crops and olive groves.

The town of Gerena is built on a granite massif, an intrusive mass that also emerges in the lands located to the north of the urban area and is part of the great plutonic mass of Castilblanco de los Arroyos.

La Barranca is a clay soil ravine in which runoff water has carved out numerous gullies. This erosion was compounded by the extraction of local clay over the centuries to manufacture bricks in the nearby kilns.

The Loma del Aire occupies a privileged location on the northeastern edge of the Sierra Norte Natural Park. It offers panoramic views of the typical Seville’s Sierra Morena landscape from the 740-metre summit: hills and mountains of medium-altitude with valleys and rivers in some areas. The Canario and Quiruela hills and the ravines along the Rivera de Onza Stream can be easily identified.

Another well-preserved balcony is the one known by the name of Benamejí, since it was commissioned by the Marquis of this title, also in the 18th century.

In this planet, with two-thirds of it occupied by seas and oceans, shipping has served as a bridge between cultures, making our world a better known place.

Las Setas de Sevilla, also known as the Metropol Parasol project, executed by architect Jürgen Mayer, is the largest wooden structure in the world.
