Seville, Spain

January 17, 2006
This Landsat Thematic Mapper image shows Seville, Spain's fourth largest city, as it was in 1984. At that time it was home to some 670,000 people.

The Santa Justa railway station is clearly visible at the center of the city. The runways of the San Pablo Airport can be seen to the northeast. The Isla de la Cartuja, just west of the center of the city, is surrounded by the east and west branches of the Guadalquivir River prior to the changes that took place as a result of the Universal Exposition of 1992. Here it is still an area mainly composed of parks and cultivated agricultural land.

The six bridges that cross over the Guadalquivir are visible on the west branch of the river and five over the eastern branch.
