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.

  • Just get, impress you! Better not come at Easter because there are days when cut you the step and you stay with the desire to enjoy of this monument without equal

  • Spectacular monument. Work of art. Few monuments there in Spain so beautiful as this square. Even more beautiful at night lit

  • Beautiful (Star Wars connection helps). Avoid going in main heat of the day if possible. Go from here to park Marie Louise  more »

  • Beautiful place that must be visited on any visit to Seville. Fantastic photo opportunities with the fountains and buildings as a backdrop. Spend a few minutes too in the lovely park next to it. Hardly any tourists made it there and we had a quiet walk amongst the beautiful orange trees before having a cool drink in the nearly empty outdoor cafe in the park away from the hustle of the nearby main road.
  • You can’t come to Seville and not visit the Plaza!! Absolutely beautiful and magical. People can spend hours here. Sitting down reading a book or taking a boat and just rowing slowly around. Or just sitting down and admiring the architecture while listening to Spanish guitar or seeing flamenco dancers. Absolutely beautiful and a must see
  • Lovely place to chill while in Seville. The place is really huge and you can enjoy the Andalusian architecture. There were flamenco dancers when we visited the place and it was really great. Staying late will give you a view of the colorful fountain plus well lighted plaza. Perfect for photographers who love night shots.
  • This is a MUST-SEE!!! One of the highlights of my entire trip! Incredible architecture and design full of history. It is huge! There is a little canal that goes around the plaza and you can rent boats. There were amazing street performer musicians there that were honestly really talented. I could’ve stayed there all day relaxing in the sun listening to their music. There are people blowing bubbles, everyone smiling having fun, and time just seems to fade away. So perfect.
  • Cool photo opportunity and if you like history you can see some blending between Spanish and American history. Definitely worth the visit if you are already in Seville. You can also choose to make it a day trip by hitting all the other parks along the way and further beyond that park. I would recommend the museum's nearby as they sometimes have free admission hours during the weekdays. Not much to do around until the night scene but until that time you'll be walking through these historic sites!
