Seville (Sevilla) is the capital and biggest city of the autonomous Andalusia community (Seville province, Spain). The city is located on River Guadalquivir. Sevilla has population of around 700,000 (municipal, and around 1.5 million (metropolitan), making it Spain's 4th-largest city. The Old Town's area is sized 4 km2 (2 ml2) and has 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites: General Archive of the Indies, Alcázar palace complex and Seville Cathedral. Seville harbour is located some 50 ml (80 km) away from the Atlantic. Seville is Spain's only river port.
The city was established as the Roman city of Hispalis. Later it became known as Ishbiliya after the Muslim conquest (712). During the Muslim rule in Spain, Seville came under the jurisdiction of Caliphate of Cordoba before becoming independent Taifa of Seville. Ruled before by Muslim Almoravids and Almohads, it was incorporated into the Christian Kingdom of Castile under king Ferdinand III (1248). Seville became one of the Spanish Empire's economic centres after the discovery of the Americas, as the port was used for the Transatlantic trade. Ferdinand Magellan departed from Sevilla for the first circumnavigation of the Earth in 1519. After the 17th century, the city started a gradual economic decline as the Guadalquivir River traffic was relocated to the nearby port of Cadiz (today a cruise ship port to Seville).
