This building is both beautiful and informative...and free to explore. It shows skilled design and Spanish passion for their county. Well worth a visit.

The representations of all the cities by azuleros representation is impressive. The central fontain is also making some rainbow when the sun shines. A kind of lake is allong the monument, and the bridges over this are a wonder of beauties.

I had expected Plaza Nueva to be livelier but when we went, there were a couple of horse carriages and a few people strolling in the morning. Probably wrong time of the year/day. But that said, its a magnificent structure with some history. Also, the adjoining park is a great place to unwind from the bustle of the city. They... More

The plaza is beautiful, set in lush gardens with a stunning fountain. We got a photo with a rainbow over the fountain, it was amazing. Not sure if there are tours available but we just had a wander around and soaked up the experience. A must visit.

Plaza de Espana is stunning. But make sure you also explore the rest of Maria Luisa park, including Plaza de America. It's a big park, so a bike is the best way to see it.

The use of ceramic tiles and decorations and the style of building summon a wow. Just a few minutes walk from the cathedral and alcazar.

The architecture is wonderful. The mosaics in front of the main building, depicting major cities and regions in Spain, are very interesting. It was good to see maintenance being carried out on some of the mosaics, as being 90 years old, some are starting to fade. It is worth spending some time wandering around the large, lovely park, in which... More
