The Plaza de España is a spectacle of light and majesty. Framed in the María Luisa Park, this plaza was designed by the great Seville architect Aníbal González as an emblematic space for the 1929 Ibero-American Expo. The result was a plaza-palace unique in the world. Its proportions are lavish.
It has a total area of 50,000 square metres, without a doubt one of the most imposing plazas in Spain.
Along the entire perimeter of the plaza, there is a canal of 515 metres in length, which you can travel by boat, a truly romantic experience.
Throughout this embrace, from one end of the plaza to the other, we recommend admiring the banks of tiles that represent the provinces of Spain. This has become a frequent “ritual” for Spanish visitors looing to take photographs in front of the space dedicated to their province.
The four beautiful bridges that cross the canal represent the ancient kingdoms of Spain.
Two tall towers stand at the ends of the Plaza, providing the area with perfect balance. These towers can be seen from all over Seville.
The porticoed gallery that separates the open space of the Plaza with respect to the buildings longs to be explored. Admire the impressive coffered ceiling…
Several film directors have fallen in love with the Plaza de España. This monument has been seen in famous films such as “Lawrence of Arabia” or Episode II of “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones”.
