Superb! We thoroughly enjoyed this place and the gardens are amazing too. Just can't believe it was free - you can see why it's one of the most visited places in Seville. Well worth a visit

The plaza itself is a half circle wich was erased for de World Exhibition. Besides the building the scenes for every important city in spain in majolica are gorgeous. We enjoy especially the garden. Walk through, lot of space in the shade which is enjoyable in summer.

Fantastic day out for the whole family, friends or simply yourself. The plaza is breathtakingly beautiful and is like a scene out of a film. The Maria Luisa Park is stunning, and there is plenty to do once you've been in and seen the plaza. Bikes for hire, row boats to hire during the summer and vendors selling drinks, ice... More

This place is a breathtaking site. There is even a free museum. I think they could make lots of money from this site as its a beautiful area with great views of the plaza. It's a great place for photographers who love to photograph architecture as well!

Built for an expo in 1929. You will be able to take some great photos here and there is a free museum to visit. Watch out for beggars and street pedlars not intimidating more nuisance value although they duck and dive when the police come in and patrol.You can hire a rowing boat or launch which runs just in front...
