General information[edit]

The station logo depicts an aqueduct.[1] This is because above the station are the remains of a colonial era aqueduct, built in 1779, that ran between Chapultepec and Salto del Agua fountain.[1] It had 904 arches and a total length of some 3.7 kilometres (2.3 mi).[1] The station is named for the Province of Seville in Spain.[1] It opened on 5 September 1969.[3]

Metro Sevilla is located near some interesting points of the city, such as the elegant tree-lined boulevard that is Paseo de la Reforma, the U.S. embassy, the Zona Rosa shopping and entertainment district, and the Torre Mayor, one of Latin America's tallest buildings.
