to him and ordered him to ask priests to dig at the site of the apparition (Marian apparition). Excavating priests rediscovered the hidden statue and built a small shrine around it which evolved into the great Guadalupe monastery. At the outbreak of the Civil War in 1936 Tella, a Major, commanded a column of General Juan Yagüe's Army of Africa (Spanish Army of Africa) in its drive north from Seville. His outstanding success was the Battle of Mérida, on August 11, in which his defence of the city enabled the bulk of Yagüe's army to move against (Battle of Badajoz (1936)) Badajoz without being outflanked. He then took part in the Siege of Madrid. On February 26, 1585 Philip named him viceroy of New Spain to succeed Pedro Moya de Contreras. At this time Manrique de Zúñiga had lived for several years in Seville, where he had gained indirect experience with the Indies. In his case, the king made the choice personally, rather than relying on the recommendation of the Council of the Indies, as was the case ordinarily. He remained in Spain for a few months before leaving for the New World. He arrived in San Juan de Ulúa (Veracruz) on September 7, 1585, with his wife. Shortly thereafter he made his formal entry into Mexico City to take up his office. Koestler had taken an ill-considered decision to stay at Málaga in southern Spain when the Republican forces withdrew from it. He had only narrowly escaped arrest by Franco (Francisco Franco)’s army on his previous sojourn into rebel territory, when on his second day in rebel-held Seville he was recognised by a former colleague of his from Ullstein (Ullstein-Verlag)’s in Berlin, who knew that Koestler was a Communist. ''The Invisible Writing,'' pp. 389-90, (‘Danube’ edition, ISBN 0090980301) This time he was less fortunate and was arrested, summarily sentenced to death and sent off to imprisonment in Seville. Career Ribeiro started working for Charles V (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) in 1518, as a cartographer at the ''Casa de Contratación'' in Seville. He adopted Spanish citizenship in 1519, and took part in the development of the maps used in the First Circumnavigation of the Earth (Ferdinand Magellan). '''Luis de Velasco, marqués de Salinas''' (known as ''Luis de Velasco, hijo'' to distinguish him from his father) (c. 1534, Carrión de los Condes, Spain—September 7, 1617, Seville), Spanish nobleman, son of the second viceroy (Luis de Velasco) of New Spain, and himself the eighth viceroy. He governed from January 27, 1590 to November 4, 1595, and again from July 2, 1607 to June 10, 1611. In between he was viceroy of Peru for eight years (July 24, 1596 to January 18, 1604). Depictions A central feature of Cervantes' story ''Rinconete y Cortadillo (:es:Rinconete y Cortadillo)'', set in 16th Century Seville, is the city's strong and well-organized thieves' guild built to the model of the medieval guild. As in any other profession, a young thief must start as an apprentice and slowly work his way to become a master craftsman—in this case, a master thief. No one could come into a city and start on a career as a thief without belonging to the local guild (as Cervantes' protagonists soon find out), which would have been in many cases true also for a medieval tailor or carpenter wandering into a strange city. And the thieves have their own church (church (building)) where they go to pray (shared with prostitutes)—which indeed was often the case with respectable professions in a medieval city.

frequent depictions

that in its frequent depictions of smoky taverns and smelly back alleys, sword and sorcery draws upon the picaresque genre; for example, Fritz Leiber's city of Lankhmar bears considerable similarity to 16th Century Seville as depicted in Cervantes' tale ''Rinconete y Cortadillo''. During the latter's domination the city declined, the role of the capital of Muslim al-Andalus having been given to Seville. On 29 June 1236, after a siege of several months, it was captured

'''Seville''' ( from the Atlantic Ocean, is the only river port in Spain. Seville is also the hottest major metropolitan area in Europe, with summer average high temperatures of above 35 °C.

Seville was founded as the Roman city of ''Hispalis'', and was known as ''Ishbiliya'' After the discovery of the Americas, Seville became one of the economic centres of the Spanish Empire as its port monopolised the trans-oceanic trade and the Casa de Contratación (House of Trade) wielded its power, opening a Golden Age (Golden Age of Spain) of arts and literature. In 1519, Ferdinand Magellan departed from Seville for the first circumnavigation of the Earth. Coinciding with the Baroque period of European history, the 17th century in Seville represented the most brilliant flowering of the city's culture; then began a gradual economic and demographic decline as silting in the Guadalquivir forced the trade monopoly to relocate to the nearby port of Cádiz.

The 20th century in Seville saw the horrors of the Spanish Civil War, decisive cultural milestones such as the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 and Expo '92 (Seville Expo '92), and the city's election as the capital of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia (Andalusian Autonomous Government).
