By | 2 June, 2016 | 0 comments

Visit Seville from a unique position and enjoy privileged views: those that can be seen from the Guadalquivir river, large ancient river that go through Andalusia with over 700km of length and connects the capital, Seville, with the Atlantic Ocean. In fact its current name come from the Arabic “al-Wadi al-Kibir”, translated into our language as “big river”.

From the deck of one of our modern, spacious and safe boats you can take a breath while you see the Guadalquivir banks, where great works are built, such as the Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, the old bridges, the mythical Barrio de Triana, the pavilions of international exhibitions celebrated in Seville the towers of the Plaza de España and numerous buildings that, in the past, chose to settle on the banks of the big river, which became to Sevilla in a strategic point of vital importance to the New World. This was the place where the merchant ships berth, at the Port of Seville, loaded with gold, silver, tobacco and other valuable goods in high demand.

In the Monastery of Santa Maria de las Cuevas, located on a small island in the Guadalquivir known as Isla de la Cartuja, was where Christopher Columbus planned his trip across the ocean looking for India.

Feel the history of Seville from a magical perspective that not everyone can enjoy, go with the river current under the bridges and gaze at the beautiful skyline of an unique and inimitable city.
