Seville city

Seville is the capital of Andalusia, the southern region of Spain. It's a beautiful and historic city and it's a great destination for your holidays where sun, light, culture, history, folclore and outdoor life are all to be found under an intense blue and mostly cloudless sky.

The excellent weather is the main reason for which important part of (daily) life in Seville traditionally takes place outside, generally on the street. This explains the great number of bars, restaurants and specially terraces all over the city.

Terraces, (tapa)bars and restaurants

If there is something not too little of in Seville, it's definitely (tapa)bars, terraces and restaurants. In the historic center there is probably no radius of a 100 meters that does not contain a public drinking or eating establishment. In some areas the concentration is so high you can see, in one glance, over a dozen, like on the Alameda de Hércules, in the Santa Cruz, Triana or Alfalfa districts.

Save the Cordoba Mosque:
please, sign the petition.

Salvemos la Mezquita de Córdoba · Por una Mezquita-Catedral de todos

The Catholic church in Spain has been exploiting to it's financial advantage the World Heritage Site of the Cordoba Mosque (Mezquita) for decades.

They now even pretend to turn this public site into church estate. They actually have already banned the term Mezquita (Mosque) to impose religious monopoly, while the Mezquita is actually one of the few great universal paradigms of harmony between cultures (main reason why it was declared World Heritage in the first place).

Public pressure is needed towards the government of Andalusia to keep this monument as public property instead of loosing it to private, christian dominion.
Save the Mezquita: please, sign the petition.
