Ceramic tile covers many of the surfaces and is absolutely beautiful. Just a nice place to walk around, take a bike ride, or possibly even take a gondola ride around the pond!

It's a beautiful place. You don't have to be a professional photographer to take a good picture here every pic turns out to be more beautiful then the previous one without any effort.

With some spare time to walk, we tripped upon this place and found it very delightful. The large square, surrounding buildings, and the nearby park constitute what is left of the 1929 fair where the Spanish speaking countries of the world celebrated themselves. There is amazing tile work in a semi-circle in front of the largest building that shows historic... More

This is probably the most impressive site in the whole of Seville. Don't leave without seeing this magnificent area.

Great place to hangout, but the first impression is the overwhelming architecture, so symmetrically perfect, that light brown is wonderful at sunset with all the colorful tiles. We made a city bike tour and one of the pit stops was this place, nice to have lunch that you brought with you or just chill and enjoy. If you get bored,... More

Beautiful architecture and great place to visit. The entire plaza with the bridges, water, etc. is a site not to be missed while visiting Seville.

A simply amazing work of architecture. Do take the time to walk around to all the benches (each named after Spanish cities and/or provinces). Also, do the boat ride (5 euros for 35 minutes, but you can fit 2-3 people in a boat!) Be prepared for lots of pictures. Don't forget to explore the rest of Parque Maria Luisa!

A must see. There were two guys playing pan flutes that were very good. Many tour buses with lots of people but that is to be expected when you want to see this beautiful structure.
