4.8/5 based on 19,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Very impressive building with great vibrant atmosphere. People walk in and out, get married or just row a small boat over the canal. Great history class for Spanisch nationals, with important and/or heroic events from every Spanish region throughout the ages.
  • My favorite landmark in Sevilla. The grand scope makes it impressive and magnificent to behold, but the attention to detail is what sets it apart. It was built as part of the Ibero-American exposition in 1929 to represent Spain, and you'll notice going around the plaza that there are bright ceramic tile murals representing each of the 50 different provinces of Spain. The plaza is truly a gorgeous place, and is a must-see for anyone visiting Sevilla.
  • The best landmark in all of Seville. I can't believe this is their city hall. You can really see the muslim influence in the design. It was so scenic and beautiful, we did not want to leave.
  • This is a beautiful plaza. I'd say it comes #3 after the Alcazar and the Geralda of the places in Seville. Make sure to time your visit near the sunset, you'll be pleased ! It would've been perfect if some dinning spots are around.
  • The fountain in the summer is awesome, with a bit of wind you get a great mist-cool down. The architecture and canal / bridges are well worth seeing
