This beautiful space is a little out of the way (in the southern part of the city) but it is a historic site rich in beautiful little details. Rent a small boat (note that you will pay a deposit that you will get back if you return the boat in time!) to really get a sense of the majesty. Great... More

Plaza de España and the garden is a Nice Place to get away from all the people in the city. Here the children can run around. We also rented a 4-wheel bike, which was a great success for the children and adults in the group.

The place is absolutely stunning. Beautiful architecture and beautiful landscape. The only disadvantage is that the location is out of the way. Best location for photpshoot. And also u can rent a boat ride there!

We rode bikes from our hotel to the Plaza and spent so much time wandering around we had to go to the Alcazar the next day. Learned a lot about Spain from all the tile maps.

Took a long walk in the city and gardens Parque de Maria Luisa before arriving at the Plaza. My husband enjoyed the Military Museum, and it was free. I liked the way each area of the country was represent edin beautiful ceramic tiles. It is a place to watch your purse many vendors. Glad we made the visit.

It is what it is: A plaza surrounded by a semicircular building which still hosts offices of government and even a military museum (which we visited and was a complete hidden gem, a lot larger than it would appear). The plaza itself is laced with beautiful aquamarine and light blue tile and mosaic, with a small body of water following... More

The Plaza de Espana is one of the most beautiful plazas I've seen. It is a bit out of the way from central Seville sites but you should not give it a miss. I returned at night to take more photos.

An absolute structural marvel. The Plaza de Espana is stunning in its grandeur and beauty. But to be honest that's about all it is good for is to look at and go, "Wow!" Not much ease to do here. It's worth a trip to see the amazing architecture, but don't allot more than an hour or so for the visit.

Worth a visit but essentially it's just a monument with very little to do. The architecture is on a grand scale but in a city with a spectacular cathedral and the Alcazar this is a bit of a poor relation. Overpriced rowing boat around canal. Location is a bit far away from other attractions.

The Plaza de Espana is impressive, but you will not need a lot of time there. Combined with a walk through the beautiful Parque de Maria Luisa, it makes for a lovely outing.
