Plaza de Espana, Seville

4.8
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.

  • I'm not sure if tours are done here, but if so, that could help provide more context to the sites. That said, it's a good place to just go, walk around and take some pictures.  more »

  • What a wonderful building. It has unique architect combining Renaissance and Moorish Spanish style. You can strolling around walking and even use your baby stroller. I walked my baby there. However, there is some places that needs a few steps of stairs. if you come here in the summer, it will be hot as hell.
  • What a beautiful place. It is a little bit far from the historical center, but it is a very nice place close to a different part of the city (more open, modern). The palace was built for the exposition and it is now a government building. All around the square there are ceramic drawings representing each Spanish province. During the summer it may be better to get there in the late afternoon, otherwise it is going to be hot.
  • Absolutely blown away by how beautiful this place was. I hadn't done loads of research into Seville so when we were taken here as part of a walking tour I was amazed! Amazingly beautiful! We walked all the way along spotting the costs of arms of all the places in Spain we had visited. The little details in the architecture were phenomenal.
  • Best things in life are free. The plaza is huge, and really nice to walk around in and chill near the fountain. There are also amazing flamenco performances at the central building stairs, which are free but you should tip a few euros. The horses and the boats add a lot to the atmosphere. No plaza in the world can compare to this.
  • We came to visit the Plaza one afternoon, and we weren't disappointed. It was incredibly hot that day, but we found shelter on the beautiful walkway along the front of the building. I was surprised that it wasn't busy, as I expected hordes of people. The stone-work is stunning, and the building itself is impressive and grand. To make it all even better, there was a group of 2 guitarists and 2 dancers performing some wonderful flamenco. Definitely recommended for anyone when visiting the city. And a part of Attack of the Clones was filmed there, for any Star Wars fans!
