Lamaignere Shipping initiated collaboration with the port of Seville to increase the visits of mega yachts and cruises at the port by the reinitiation of the Belle de Cadix trips and welcoming the arrival of the Kaos megayacht.
The first week of September is beginning with great news for the cruise ship traffic in Andalusia. For starters, last Saturday September 4, the ‘Belle de Cadix‘ of the Croisierupe company, which is based in the Port of Seville, made its first stopover in Seville and which will later make stops in the Ports of Huelva and Cádiz before returning to Seville again on Tuesday, September 7. Also, next Wednesday September 8, we will be receiving at the Seville port the megayacht ‘Kaos’, a luxury boat of 110 meters in length, valued at almost 300 million euros.
At Lamaignere Shipping we believe that these activities will serve as a great boosters for the high-end cruise and megayacht sector in Andalusia and will gradually help us reach pre-pandemic levels.
We also would like to thank the Diario de Huelva for mentioning Lamaignere Shipping as the consignees with regards to this news, and the Port of Huelva for their enthusiasm and collaboration on this project.

The “Costa del Sol“ is one of the most popular tourist destination in Spain. Approximately 35% of all tourists to this country choose to visit the Costa del Sol coastal area. But how did this area get its name?
The concept of Costa del Sol was coined by Rodolfo Lussning in 1928, owner of a hotel in Almeria, as a part of a promotional campaign presented in the newspaper ¨La Cronica Meridional¨. The goal of the campaign was to attract new foreign tourists to the 1929 expositions in Seville and Barcelona. The name was not adopted, as a mainstream concept and/or used in the different communication media, until 1947.
Today, the Costa del Sol zone stretches along 185km of the coast of Malaga starting at the municipality of La Linea de la Conception all the way to Nerja; although sometimes some municipalities of the coast of Granada up until Motril may also be included.
Another coined name for the Costa del Sol is Costa del Golf. This name was given to this area owing to the high number of golf courses found in the region. In fact, Andalusia takes first place, in all of Spain and Europe, for the number of golf courses it has. Therefore it is a fantastic zone and an ideal place to do this sport if you decide to visit Andalusia by yacht.read more

In this blog post we share with you 4 things you can do in this beautiful city:
1.Discover the historical centre which houses 3 important Unesco World Heritage sites
The Cathedral of Seville, with its Giralda, the Royal Alcazar and the General Archives of the Indies are must see monuments. Our recommendation is to meander the streets enjoying all the sights and sounds of the centre. This area of Seville can be enjoyed without a car as many of its streets are pedestrian zones only.
2. Other interesting areas outside the historical centre that are worth a visit
If you visit the famous Spain square (Plaza España) you will immediately experience a sense of harmony and peace as you enjoy the Renaissance Revival architecture style of the building that surrounds it. The superb plaza was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition. This complex has been immortalized in movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars and Game of Thrones. It is also special as it´s building is decorated with ceramic tiles representing all of the provinces of Spain. Also it is located next to the Maria Luisa Park; a green space that includes gardens of the San Telmo palace. Just a 15 – 20 minutes-walk from this area, you will find yourself in the neighbourhoods of Triana and Los Remedios or next to iconic places such as the Gold tower (Torre de Oro) near the river or the famous Santa Cruz neighbourhood.
3. Gastronomic experiences
Seville has an incredible number of restaurants at which any tourist can savour the main traditional dishes of Andalusia.
4. Enjoy cultural activities/experiences
As the capital of Andalusia, Seville has a lot to offer in terms of experiencing the rich Andalusian culture. It has many beautiful venues where you can see flamenco performances, concerts and other live music.
