Went to have a look after reading all of the reviews. There is no doubt it is worth a visit and the place is wonderful to look at. However I couldn't help looking at it and thinking "why?". I know it's history etc but the lack of purpose for me spoiled it a little. Also we went on a quiet... More

We loved this area activity. It's filled with loads of people and is at the edge of the Mary Louisa Park. The building is amazing with most beautiful architecture and the Spanish tiles are beautiful. Loved the effect of the bridges and the little canal that people can take a small boat around in. Perfect activity on a beautiful day!

We love our walk through the Plaza de Espana, with the canal and bridges, as well as the lovely painted tile murals. the best time to go is just abou 30 minutes before sunset, to watch the lights come on in the plaza. There were fewer people around at that time as well.

I've loved Plaza de Espana from the first time I laid eyes on it in 1972-73, when it was starting to fall apart. It's been completely refurbished, and a total mind-blower if you love Spanish tiles.

We aproached this on foot and as we walked around the corner into the Plaza we were amazed at it's size & beauty; You can't actually enter the building as it's used as government offices but strolling around the terrace and by the huge pool is lovely. We took loads of photos and then had a coffee in one of... More

Built for the Indies exhibition of 1929. An extraordinary and beautiful monument to Seville, Spain and its achievement. Possibly, the last great building complex in 19th century style in Europe. Parks adjoining with archaeological museum and 'folk' museum. All stunning!

A beautiful plaza which deserves an hour or so of your time ... take camera and plenty of film. It was built to impress and it does.
