3 RD DAY: CÓRDOBA - SEVILLA   

Morning southwest drive towards Sevilla. The city of Seville is located on the plain of the Guadalquivir river which crosses the city from North to South. In the past the port of Seville played an important role in commerce between Spain and the Americas and remains today one of the most active river ports of the Iberian peninsula. The Tartessians were the original founders of Hispalis. Next to this settlement, in 207 B.C., the Romans built Itálica. It was the centre of their Western Mediterranean dominions for seven centuries until the Roman empire was overrun by Northern barbarians at the beginning of the 10th century. The long Moorish occupation of the Iberian peninsula, from 711 A.D. to 1248 A.D., left indelible traces in Seville as in all of Al-Andalus. La Giralda, the tower of an important mosque, is the most well-known of the remaining Islamic monuments.

In 1492 Seville played an important role in the discovery and conquest of America.
The 17th century was a period of artistic splendour in Seville. Painters such as Velázquez, Murillo and Valdés Leal, and sculptors like Martínez Montañés were born in Seville and left behind important works. The city also assumed an important role in world literature and was the birthplace of the myth of Don Juan. On two occasions in the 20th century Seville has been in the spotlight of the world's attention. In 1929, it hosted the Latin American Exhibition, which left important urban improvements in the city. More recently, Expo 92 reinforced the image of Seville as a modern and dynamic city.

After the evening dinner planned for the choir, see a fiery flamenco show in Triana the gypsy quarters of the city.

Tour Cost: the tour especified above is a sample of a concert tour that can be made to measure for the choir. This concert tour can be enhanced, for example, by adding 2 nights on Spain's famous Costa del Sol at the end of the tour or, 2 nights in Madrid which would give the choir the chance of visiting Toledo also.
