After reading the other reviews I figured I'd better not miss the place. Yes, the building is quite impressive, gorgeous tiles and unique architecture, but there wasn't anything else to do there, except rent a silly row boat to go around a mote-like water feature. Nice park adjacent to the main building area, but it felt a bit seedy to... More

Stunning place. It looks better than it does in the photos. The boat rides are just a few Euros and worth doing if the weather isn't too hot.

A grand and welcoming plaza. Best explored on foot up and down stairs, over arched bridges, through the extensive park and along the historic building's promenade. Some prefer a carriage ride, others a boat. Many ways to enjoy and plenty of room for all.

Really nice to see, esp for strolls (in combination with the parc). Not as amazing as alcazar or some other monuments in Sevilla. Looks a little like a giant opera stage. Still, definitely worth enjoying as eyecandy.

Right next to Maria Luisa Park, this architectural masterpiece is certainly well worth a visit. There is a massive reflection pond. The bridge, fences that surround the pond, and the building exterior all feature beautiful tile work. The stairs to upper floors feature Moorish designs. Be sure to check out the ceramic benches around the front of the semi-circular building,... More

It looks like a place on another planet! It is simply not logical for such a large and magnificent structure to be constructed for practically no rhyme or reason! Perhaps that is why this plaza appeared in Star wars II (or 5 if you are counting sequentially according to the releases). Take a romantic horse carriage ride from this Plaza... More
