The Guadalquivir is the second longest river in Spain after the Tagus, and the longest in Andalusia. The Guadalquivir is 657 kilometers long and begins at Cañada de las Fuentes in the Cazorla mountain range (Jaén), passes through Córdoba and Seville and flows into the Gulf of Cádiz, in the Atlantic Ocean.
Seville's history is intimately linked to that of the river Guadalquivir because from its most remote past the city has been both a river port and bridge between the Atlantic Ocean and the hinterland of Andalusia. Even as far back as the beginnings of the first millenium B.C. the area of Seville was destined to become the great market place of the Guadalquivir Valley. The original Seville was born where the river became no longer navigable for seagoing ships.
I would have never imagined to see such a rainy weather in Sevilla during the Holy Week (the well known Semana Santa): due to the heavy downpours it was the first time since the Civil War in 1933, that La Madruga, the processions involving several fellowships of believers (cofradias), had not taken place ... Great luck to be there just this year...

Ciao Dario, piacere di risentirti.
Attacco un commento letterario,parafrasando Maurice Blanchot: " La maledizione di una bella foto è il luogo in cui è stata scattata. Non si sa mai a chi va il merito".
Stavolta il merito lo dò a te, caro ingegnere!

What a view in Sevilla. I never imagined that it is possible to have such heavy clouds in a place with a well-known dry weather. I have just found your picture browsing for more photos of Sevilla, after I uploaded mine. The river seems to be green all year round.
