Façade of the Admiral´s Hall

Seville City Council

Seville City Council
Sevilla, Spain

It owes its name to the Admiralty of Castilla Court, which had its headquarters here. The Admiral's Hall was a "House of Trade with the Indies" part, Institution founded in Seville in 1504 by Queen Isabel I after the discovery of America, to control the trade between Spain and the New World.

Sevilla was the harbor chosen by the Queen as it offered security against pirate attacks, turning the city into the Port and Door to America, and the European main commercial City during the sixteenth century. This is the hall where the Main Pilot Amerigo Vespucci, Magellan and El Cano planned the ßrst travel around the world, and Juan de la Cosa made the ßrst world map in History. The Admiral’s Hall is decorated with historical theme paintings from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Today is our Conference Room.
