Magnificent place to view. Really enjoyed sitting there and relaxing on the ceramic benches as the world went by.

So nice to visit at night, have a romantic stroll take a few photos but must be seen in the day as well followed by a walk through Maria Luisa Park. There's something special about this area and I don't think I will ever tire of visiting How can something so beautiful have a free entry. What a bonus. Spain,... More

Plaza is beautiful, and building around it is also beautiful. People rent a boat and enjoy rowing it. Some tourist, some locals, strangely everyone looks happy there. You can enjoy relaxing moments. You don't have to be careful with cars or trams, just walk slowly and see some tile decorations to represent each regions of Spain.

Superb architecture and tiled decoration so quintessentially Spanish. A must see stop on the city sight seeing bus tour. For the less energetic take a horse drawn carriage ride through the gardens if its too hot to walk. There are also rowing boats for hire on the Plaza lake although there isn't far you can go.

We wandered into this area by chance and loved it. The tile work, the waterways with boats to rent and paddle, the strollers, segways...you name it, its here. Beautiful building and grounds. Take the time to visit. Highly recommend.

My husband and I have travelled to Seville previously, around 5-6yrs ago. We didn't come across this location on our previous visit, which is somewhat astounding! I don't know how on earth we missed it, and we wouldn't want any other visitors to Seville to do the same. We were in actual fact lost and took a detour through The... More

Wow, what a beautiful place, truly a must see in Seville. They filmed some of Star Wars Episode 2 here and it is awe inspiring. They have a lazy river you can row on and lots of bridges akin to Venice. They also have a war museum, which is interesting too.
