Seville has its origins in the trade routes controlled by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC. Romans, Goths, Muslims, and Christians established their capital here before it became the most important city in Southern Europe and gateway to the Americas in the 16th century. The commercial hub of its region, the city preserves many traces of its past and traditions. With fewer than 800,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Bienal of Flamenco and the European Film Festival to alternative theater venues and one of the most respected bullrings in the world.
