Why Do So Many Operas Choose Seville As A Background?

Why Do So Many Operas Choose Seville As A Background?

Sevilla is a beautiful city and it gave many famous writers and composers inspiration for their operas and plays. Sevilla is a great location, with great myths and the city is very romantic... With its beautiful houses and squares, romantic balconies and impressive monuments, like the Maestranza bullring and the old Tabaco Factory, it is easy to imagine the equally comic and tragic action of operas taking place around its streets.

How was The Netherlands a part of the Spanish Empire?

How was The Netherlands a part of the Spanish Empire?

Hello everyone! Did you know that in the past, The Netherlands was a part of the Spanish Empire? Most people have no idea that this was the case, as it seems highly unlikely that a European country that had such a rich and lucrative past was once part of another, a much bigger country situated at the other end of Europe. I have looked into it and I hope to teach you something, with this blog, about how The Netherlands was part of the Spanish Empire.

Catholicism in Sevilla

Religion in Sevilla

Something that stood out to me when I moved to Sevilla was that religion still plays a big role in this city. Roman Catholicism is the largest Christian religion in the world, and also the most popular religion in Spain. It is one of the oldest religious institutions in the world, and it follows the Old and New Testament of the Bible. There are about 200 Roman Catholic churches in Sevilla, so you can say it's quite popular here. But why is it so important in this city? And will it stay like that in the future as...

Stereotypes

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to introduce you to the stereotype of the Sevillanos (the people who live in Sevilla). I will tell you a little bit about their habits in this blog. Enjoy reading this blog!

In General 

In general the people in Sevilla are happy people. They know how to live their life to the fullest and they enjoy every little thing. The Sevillianos are hard workers and they are really friendly. Of course there are also people in Sevilla who are the opposite, but this happens all around the worl...

santa cruz

Today's blog is about the Jewish quarter we have in Sevilla. One of the most charming areas of Sevilla if you ask me. Perfect to stroll around on a Sunday morning. But also, a lot of history in one area. Curious? In this blog will I tell you more about it.

 

History of Barrio de Santa Cruz

The Jewish quarter is near to the Real Alcazar, located in the centrum of Seville. The king Ferdinand III of Castille who conquered the city from Muslim rule, belonged this part of the city to the Jewish people who lived in Sev...

Rain in Spain

When you see this sentence, you are probably going to think "What a weird sentence!!" I agree, and in this blog, I will tell you what this sentence means, and I will tell you a little bit about the weather (mostly about the rain) in Sevilla.

Meaning

The sentence 'the rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain' was conceived, because people were irritated by the people speaking with a  Cockney accent (Cockney is a neighbourhood in London, England). People who did not have that accent or another accent were kind of irritated...

A new face: Mirthe joins our team!

So, I guess whatever you’ll find on the internet about ATD I probably have something to do with it. I’m going to make blogs, vlogs and many more! 

In my free time I like to play volleyball, go out for a run, watching movies or just being around friends! I also like it a lot to travel. So, when I had the chance to do my internship abroad, I immediately knew I had to go. This was my chance. 

Why Sevilla?

But why in Sevilla? It’s strange because I have no family or friends here (yet). Also, I do not speak a word...

Spanish siesta

 

When you think about Spain, you think about Siesta. It’s one of the most famous stereotypes about Spanish culture. But what does Siesta mean? A lot of people think that Siesta born in Spain but it’s false. Indeed, in the Romanian empire, people were already making siesta. Moreover, Siesta comes from the Romanian sixth hour. Currently, siesta is a bad topic about Spain because Spanish people are considered as lazy people, however, only 16 % of Spanish people make siesta, worst Spanish government want to delete it.
