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.

  • Gorgeous square, to visit. The climate is party. If you're lucky you'll find flamenco dancers.

  • Majestic and regal! An absolute treat! Spanish architecture at its best. It so elegant that it could have a royal palace easily. And the crowing glory, the coats of arms and maps of its various cities in sumptuous colors is a rare treat. Nothing compares.
  • Go when it’s not so hot so you can see the tiles and ceramics of the different parts of spain! It’s a beautiful place to walk around and spend a few hours; buskers, boat and horse rides, touristy but still totally authentic cos it’s so big that you will have space to roam about freely. We were there in the evening and there were beautiful rainbows on the fountains!
  • There's something about this place that's very relaxing! It is a huge space, but the closer you get to the buildings, the bridges, and the brick benches the more details of amazing ceramic work is revealed to you. You always have a rhythmic repetition of architectural elements but they're usually not the same.
  • This is a must see while in Seville. The intricacy of the architecture can be appreciated during the day and night. There is lots of room to walk around and explore as the park it is situated in is huge.
  • Beautiful landmark. Don’t recommend napping on the tile benches. They typically have some kind of flamenco show going on. It’s also very beautiful at night.

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.
