Plaza de España, Seville

4.8
Natives of Seville love to have their wedding photos taken at Plaza de España, 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.

  • Lovely to see but no internal access. The widespread use of ceramics is fascinating. There is a 'moat' but when we visited it was dry and the little boats all marooned. Nearby park is a splendid place...  more »
  • When you stand right in the middle, it's a great spectacle and therefore worth a visit. We experienced street flamingo dancing on the stairs in the middle, where there was nice shade for a break and a great acoustics-a really good experience. You can also see the many tourists and spanishpeople try themselves in rowing boats on the small Lake Canal on one side. It's just as entertaining as seeing tourists on rental bicycles in Copenhagen.
