My husband and I have just returned from 6 days in Seville and so covered most of the things to do and see in the beatiful city. We just loved Plaza de Espana! It is so beautiful and huge! There's boats you can hire to go round the little lake and it is right on the edge of Park Luisa.... More

A gorgeous must see and the park is a relaxing retreat from the warm sun. Don't forget to walk around the plaza and take a look at all the cities and their mosaics. Stunning.

It was amazing and certainly very popular with tourists. We all learnt a lot about Spain and its different areas. Lots to see for all ages.

I loved Plaza de España and its impressive architecture. I loved the little tiled pavillions dedicated to each of Spain's provinces, full of little details and history. Tiled bridges, rowing boats, it was a heavenly, relaxing, beautiful place. Totally surprised me as you do not expect something like this when talking about a "plaza".

One of the prettiest squares we've seen! We took a carriage ride from the Alcazar to this plaza and through Maria Luisa Park; it was one of the best ideas, as we didn't have to walk all the way there, and could stop at any time to get a closer look or photos. This is one of the "must see's"... More

Though I found it was getting a little tatty. Quite a few missing tiles which considering it was only built in the 20s I feel they should have replaced. It was also a bit dirty which may have been down to the large numbers of birds flying in and out. The boats looked fun but we didn't try them as... More

Worth the visit, but the building is not actually that old. Not sure why people hire the boats to row round the small amount of water. Liked the tiled balustrade.

The Plaza was directly across from our hotel, so it was the first thing we decided to tour on our trip. The weather was beautiful, and I can see why students and others just enjoy sitting and reading, or people watching! I was expecting more of a "tour" like the Alcazar or Cathedral, but the Plaza was more of a... More

Beautiful grand plaza, busy with Andalucian horse carriages, gorgeous Moorish architecture. Of course it's touristy, but you can't go to Sevilla without a stop to appreciate it.

Relatively new (1929) compared to the rest of Seville but worth a visit - very grand! Walk over to Triana (across the river) after your visit here
