Some people thought this was a bit 'Disney', but I loved it. There's plenty of shade in the gardens, the architecture is magnificent and the fountains are lovely. It looks like there's always plenty going on too, with stalls and boats and concerts and carriage rides...

The Plaza de Espana is a beautiful example of Spanish architecture. We enjoyed taking a carriage ride that went from the cathedral and ended at the Plaza. Pictures don't do the Plaza justice.

What a square. Fountains, water features, ornate bridges, set in a spacious square providing a peaceful atmosphere. And the Plaza is an amazing structure set as a crescent of palace like buildings now housing various local and regional government departments.

I had seen pictures of this in a guide book and of the Maria Luisa Park surrounding it so was keen to visit. We arrived from the City Discovery tour bus and a short walk through the relaxing , quiet park. The Plaza has been very successfully restored and I could not stop taking pictures of the amazing tiled structures... More

You must take a few hours to walk around Plaza de Espana. If you like to take photos this is a great place to get your picture taken. Nice to take a carriage ride through the park. Turned out to be a nice place to take a morning run. Lots of folks to run with and the views are amazing.

This is quite a sight and the building of it is remarkable.. Pity the building is too wide for a good photograph.

You should not leave Seville without seeing the Plaza de Espana! Everything from the detailed tile work to the beautiful garden that surrounds the plaza are absolutely stunning. My favourite part would have to be the outdoor tiled benches, flanked with mini tiled bookshelves, that are actually stocked with books! Would definitely recommend a visit.

Ended our free walking tour at this iconic site. Very nice to see the use of old styles in a fairly new building.

This is imperial Spain at it's height...a little bit off the main streets and a lovely walk through the park..it's a palatial vista with canals and rowing boats. Worth a look
