Transcript of "Sevilla Aaron 1 E"

  1. 1. SEVILLA: "Alegría, gracia y encanto"
  2. 2. La catedral • Seville's cathedral, the thirdlargest in the world, has a long and moving history: over an original Roman foundation base Goths built a temple, of which today is only conserved a small fountain in the Patio de los Naranjos the "courtyard of the orange trees", which itself is together with the mighty tower, Giralda, a rest of the Moorish mosque that was built here lateron.
  3. 3. La Giralda • The minaret of the old Moorish mosque, today the tower of the cathedral, is this city's landmark. In the time when it was built it was the highest building in the world. Today, including some additions made by the Christians with a huge bronze statue at its top, the Giralda measures 97,5 meters. You may enjoy from here a fantastic view over all the city.
  4. 4. La torre del oro • The octagonal Moorish "Gold-Tower" was originally part of the townwalls along Guadalquivir river. Its name comes from the golden ceramic tiles which originally covered its front. In the Christian epoch the tower served as seat of the marine's administration. Today it is used as Museum of Navigation.
  5. 5. Puente de Triana • The "Bridge of Triana" was built from 1845 to 1852 by French architects Steinacher and Bernadet. At one of its extremes is located a modernist chapel of Hannibal Gonzalez
  6. 6. Antigua estacion • This former train-station, built in 1889, is considered a milestone of Sevillian architecture. It combines traditional elements of Moorish and Mudejar styles (the architects were concretely inspired by the Alhambra of Granada and the Mosque of Tanger) with modernist influences, mainly of French origins.
  7. 7. Plaza España • An impressive work of Seville's best known modernist style architect, Hannibal Gonzalez. It was made for the "IberoAmerican Exposition 1929" and is located in the center of "Maria-Luisa-Park", forming a semi-circle around an artificial lake. The two highly individual towers at its both extremes and the great ceramic ornaments which symbolize the provinces of Spain make it one of the most characteristical buildings in town.
  8. 8. La maestranza • Seville's famous bullring with its 116 asymmetrical balconies dates of 18th century. It has also a Bullfight-Museum. Located in Seville's bullring, this museum shows dresses of famous bullfighters, trophies, photos and other objects of the world of bullfighting.
  9. 9. Feria de Abril “ole” • Originally this was just a cattlemarket, but through the years it turned out to be one of the greatest popular festivities in Spain. You will have the opportunity to see the typical flamenco dresses which almost all women never mind their age wear. Innumerable "casetas" or provisional houses are built on the terrain and decorated with colorful lamps. In the morning the landowners get to the Feria on horses or in horse-coaches
