Seville (traditionally, Sibília or Xibília) is an Andalusian municipality and city, capital of the homonymous province and of Andalusia. It has 702,355 inhabitants,  being the most populated city in Andalusia, the fourth in Spain after Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia, and the 31st in the European Union.
The municipality has an extension of 140.8 km², although the Metropolitan Area of Seville is composed of 46 municipalities and includes a population of 1,519,639 inhabitants (INE 2011), occupying a total surface of 4,900 km². Its old town is the most extensive in Spain.
Its historical and monumental heritage and its various scenic and cultural spaces make it a city that receives national and international tourism. Among its most representative monuments are the Cathedral (which includes the Giralda), the Alcázar, the Archives of the Indies and the Torre del Oro; the first three are jointly declared World Heritage by Unesco in 1987. The port of Seville, about 80 km from the Atlantic Ocean, is one of the few river ports in Spain, given that the Guadalquivir River is navigable from its mouth in Sanlúcar de Barrameda to the Seville capital.
Likewise, Seville has a developed road and rail transport network, as well as an international airport and a metro network. The historical presence of the aeronautical industry in the city, as well as the military industry, is noteworthy.
Her Roman name was Iulia Romula Hispal or Hispalis from which the Muslim name Ixbilis derives (His(Ix)pa(bi)). It was part of Hispania Ulterior (later Baetica) on the banks of the Betis (Guadalquivir) which was navigable up to the city.
Julius Caesar made it a Roman colony and although an attempt was made to favor the neighboring colony of Betis (Baetis), in the 1st century Hispalis was one of the main cities of Turdetania, surpassed only by Corduba and Gades, which get over; in the time of Claudius Ptolemy it bore the title of metropolis and under the Vandals and Visigoths it was the provincial capital, above Córdoba. It was also home to a juridical convent and bore the titles of Julia Romula and Colonia Romulensis.
