Sevilla, Spain's fourth-largest city, chief town of its area and capital of Andalusia, the see of an archbishop and a university town, lies in a fertile plain on the left bank of the Río Guadalquivir.

Here the Guadalquivir emerges into the Andalusian lowlands, and at high tide - The consequence of which is felt for more than 100km/60mi up the river - it is possible for seagoing vessels of some size to reach the river port of Seville, 87km/54mi from the sea, using a channel which bypasses the last bend on the river before the town.
