History For centuries, analysts and scholars have claimed that Seville was founded by Hercules, the youngest son of Zeus(whose Roman equivalent was Jupiter) and mortal women in Greece. According to tradition, he marked the place where JuliusCaesar would found the city with six stone pillars. The great Roman general named the town Iulia Romula Hispalis - Iulia afterhimself, Romula after Rome, and Hispalis due to it being built on posts dug into the ground. Our establishment, the Hotel Sacristíade Santa Ana, located on the famous avenue named after the legendary hero, La Alameda de Hércules, has recreated situations,landscapes, episodes and characters, related with his famous twelve labours in each of its twenty-five bedrooms. Hercules was thename in Roman mythology of the Greek hero Heracles, which is a metathesis (where sounds change place within a word, attractedor repelled by each other) of the original. He was the son of the mortal Alcmena (the power of the moon), daughter of Electryon,and thanks to an unrepeatable list of feats he became a god. The Romans adopted the Greek version of his life and works withoutany major changes, but added some details of their own, some of which related the hero to the geography of the westernMediterranean. The details of his cult were also adapted to Rome. The twelve labours of Hercules or Heracles are a series of archaicstories that are interrelated by a subsequent continuous narrative, of the penance done by the hero. Struggles with ferociousanimals and beasts give the story an epic aspect. The establishment of a fixed cycle of twelve labours was attributed by the Greeksto an epic poem (lost today) written by Peisandros of Rhodes, perhaps 600 before Christ. As they are passed down to us, the laboursof Hercules are not narrated in a single place, but are instead taken from many sources. There is no single way of interpreting thelabours, but six were certainly located in the Peloponnese culminating with the rededication of Olympia, and the other six, part ofthe same sequence, took the hero much further away. In each case, the pattern was the same - Heracles or Hercules was sent to killor conquer, or search for a magic plant or animal for Heras representative: Eurystheus. All selected places where previouslyGoddess Hera’s Bastions and Entrances to the Other World.In his labours, Heracles was often accompanied by his friend (an eromenos). According to some this was Licymnius, and to othershis nephew Iolaus. Although he was only supposed to perform ten labours, this assistance led to him having to undertake two more.Eurystheus did not count slaying the Hydra, because Iolaus helped him, or cleaning the Augean stables, as he received payment forhis work or - in other versions - because rivers did the work), and ordered him to complete two more, making a total of twelve. As aresult, a stay at the Hotel Sacristía de Santa Ana is an immersion in the legendary depths of fantastic Greek and Roman mythology…
