Geographic Features of Seville’s Landscape
Forest – The local university works with environmental conservation to preserve the natural wooded areas around Seville. Whilst the area is not heavily forested, trees natural to the area are oak such as cork and holly oaks. Pine also grows naturally.
Guadalquivir River – Andalusia’s longest river, the Guadalquivir River has a flat plain and river basin through which it runs. The length of the river is over 650 kilometres.
Hills – The town has some ridges and cliffs of clay and lime. Still, the river plain where Seville rests averages only 7 metres above sea level.
Mountains – The highest mountains of the country below the Pyrenees are in Andalusia. Some are as tall as nearly 3,500 metres. The mountains are to the north and east of Seville.
River Plain – The irrigated and rich, loamy soil is excellent for crops. West from the city are orange groves and an agricultural region in the fertile river plain.
