Photographer's Note

The Guadalquivir river is the only great navigable river in Spain. Currently it is navigable from the Gulf of Cádiz to Seville, but in Roman times it was navigable to Córdoba.

The modern name of Guadalquivir comes from Arabic, meaning "the great valley".

There were a variety of names for the Guadalquivir in Classical and pre-Classical times. The native people of Tartessians or Turdetanians called the river by two names: Kertis/Certis and Rerkēs. The Romans called it by the name Baetis (that was the basis for name of the province of Hispania Baetica).
