    R��o Guadalquivir

    "Guadalquivir so green
    of ancient oil..."
    Gerardo Diego

    Guadalquivir is the river that goes through Sevilla, and it is absolutely beautiful.

    "Guadalquivir tan verde
    de aceite antiguo..."

    Guadalquivir, el río que atraviesa Sevilla, es absolutamente espectacular.

    Carmen Statue

    Carmen statue

    This is a statue of Carmen across the street from the Plaza de Toros along the river. She was the inspiration for Bizet's famous opera about the Spanish gypsy woman and her lover Don Jose in 1820's Seville.

    Rio Guadalquivir

    by acemj Updated Dec 21, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Guadalquivir River bends through Sevilla and links it with historically important trading partners like Cadiz to the south. Walk along the edge of the river in the morning for the best light and views across to Triana on the other side.

    Along the Río Guadalquivir

    by GeoDenia Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A short walk west from Avenida de la Constitución brings you to the bank of the Río Guadalquivir, a pleasant place for a stroll. The 13th-century Almohad Torre del Oro, just north of the Puente de San Telmo, once crowned a corner of the city wall that stretched here from the Alcázar. Supposedly it was originally covered in golden tiles, hence its name, and there's now a tiny maritime museum inside.
    A block back from the river, the Hospital de la Caridad hospice was founded in the 17th century. The hospital's church (1670s) holds an interesting collection of top-class art and sculpture on the theme of death and redemption by local artists. Two masterworks of painter Valdés Leal, chillingly illustrating the futility of worldly success in the face of death, are at the west end of the church.

    Puente de San Telmo Bridge

    by keeweechic Updated Oct 12, 2008

    The bridge was built in 1931 and crosses the Guadalquivir River to the Plaza de Cuba on the Triana side. In 1965 it was given a facelift when it was restored.

    Another good idea during your visit to Sevilla,it is take a ship at Guadalquivir River and make a small cruise.Also by nights you can have a dinner and music in some of these ships.
