Plaza de Espana, Seville
(4.8/5 based on 20,000+ 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.

  • A huge place, very nice under the sun thanks to the warm colours of buildings. Mandatory to spend 1h min to feel the atmosphere.

  • Very nice place to visit. Can be very crowded with groups of tourists in the morning. When I was there the vendors selling fans were running away from the police. I was told by the guide to be aware of pickpockets. The canal shaped like open arms welcoming the people to come to the square. You can find 4 bridges representing the 4 ancient kingdoms of Spain. Nice to take pictures of the ceramic benches representing the various towns in alphabetical order.
  • . Fascinating view of Old Spain It's not often that you go around a town square trying to read the walls and admire the paintings on them. Here you can. The square was built in the 20's to show off Spain to the world, or at least to the Spanish-speaking world, as it was the centrepiece of the Ibero-American world fair of 1929. Basically, it's tiled. But your Corporation Lavatories have nothing on this. Until you've seen acres of multi-coloured tiling, with pictures, you couldn't believe it. Well worth a visit and loads of photos. And a second visit the next day! .
  • Well if you are in Seville this is certainly a must-see. The architecture is fantastic and you will be amazed by how many features are jammed into such a small area. There is a moat with several bridges and perfect for walking tours. Bring the kids along and take plenty of pictures at this iconic place. The location is actually inside a larger public park so wander around and get lost. The only drawback is that street vendors definitely take advantage of the geographic monopoly and charge tourists whatever they want. Everything from souvenirs to ice cream is expensive inside the park, so stock up before you enter.
  • It is offices and government buildings inside but the most beautiful public square in Seville. It's inside the park so no traffic once inside. Can hire a boat too and gently row under the little bridges.
  • this place is beautiful. I only had a short time in Sevilla and could only go at night but it was just stunning. Next time I'll definitely go during the day and spend some more time looking around.
