Architectural Building Historic Site
Natives of Seville love to have their wedding photos taken at Plaza de Espana, while passing tourists enjoy taking a long breather at this historic square built for the 1929 Latin American Expo. Painstakingly restored to its original splendor after years of neglect, the plaza is one of the country’s finest examples of Renaissance Revival architecture. The square faces a large park, another city landmark built for the same international exposition. The entire area is surrounded by impressive buildings carefully designed to represent the city’s glorious past. Many of these structures blend elements of the region’s Moorish and Christian heritage, with the grandest mansions on the square now serving as museums and government offices.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.

  • This is a beautiful building with interesting architecture. The unique and distinct use of tiles makes it even more elegant and visit worthy. Certainly worth visiting when in Seville  more »

  • One of the must visit places in Sevilla. The plaza is huge and the architecture is fantastic. Make sure you have enough time in your hand because you will need at least 1 hour to cover the entire plaza. The small canal has boats that give people a good view of the place, however, the water is not that clean. Horse carriage ride in the area was fun. Tip: Great place to take photos.
  • This is a nice plaza to walk around and take some pictures. Right next to the Parque Maria Luisa, it is a good place to sit around for a while and take a break from walking the city. Beautiful architecture
  • A very beautiful plaza within a also very beautiful garden.. The architecture is absolutely stunning! Great photo op. One of the Star Wars episode actually had a scene shot here. Definitely worth visit, especially it's FOC.
  • Really nice place for night views. Around 9-10pm you can see all the lamps and the edificios light up. Pleasant atmosphere without sunshine at night.
  • Such an incredible work of architecture. The row boats are so romantic. The detail and grandness is quite breathtaking. Great market too. My favourite monument of Seville.
