My friend and I stumbled upon this place on our way back to our hotel one evening. As we were tired, and it was raining, we decided we would return a couple of days later.

It is a beautiful area, and despite the city being busy due to the fiesta taking place, it wasn't crowded. I can highly recommend it for a couple of hours, especially on a warm sunny day. Due to the river running though it, there are echoes of Venice. We saw a couple of Flamenco dancers here, which was interesting. I would say that this is a place not to miss if you are visiting Seville. When you have finished here, you should walk through the adjacent Maria Luisa Park.

Visited a couple of times during my stay in Sevilla, once early evening but it was too hot to stay long. Then another day when it was cloudier so much more bearable and was able to see the ad hoc flamenco performances taking place at the plaza. The hop on, hop off bus also stops here if you are using that. Such an amazing array of mosaic tiles and areas to walk around, can easily enjoy a couple of hours here chilling out.

The scale and well preserved nature of this elaborate building really have to been seen to be believed.
It looks to be a very well looked after building ie very well maintained with no real sense of faded glory.
In a way, at least in one regard, coronavirus did us a favour - we saw it a few years ago when it was moderately busy. However, in the early evening of 10th July 2020 it was incredibly quiet - and thereby all the more impressive.
For anyone who has seen the film Lawrence of Arabia, there will be the added interest of the fact that this building and the surrounding area were used, rather convincingly, to represent British Army HQ in Cairo in around 1916.
On both visits we only saw it from the outside - but didn’t feel that we had missed out!

Wikipedia states: 'It was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. It is a landmark example of Regionalism Architecture, mixing elements of the Baroque Revival, Renaissance Revival and Moorish Revival (Neo-Mudéjar) styles of Spanish architecture.'
I suppose, if you can't be bothered to visit the truly historic Sevilla, you could whip round this and the other 'revival' pavilions built for the Exposition and save yourself the trouble ....
Our guide seemed inordinately proud of this confection and I was just confused ....

Take the time to linger at the Plaza during the twilight hours and you will see the place transform and light up - from the imposing grandeur of the daytime to the surreal magical view at night, this is a place to spend an hour or two at least. We had fun just people watching and viewing a live flamenco performance, as well as just passing the time in the cool of the day. Don’t take this as a touch and go, but really sit and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere here.

Noticed this location whilst researching a trip to Seville for our 30th wedding anniversary. Located in some beautiful parkland is a collection of buildings and ceramics for the 1929 Spanish World Fair.

The buildings were also used for filming of the 2nd prequel Star Wars film, but even if you're not a fan of sci-fi there is much to be impressed by the sheer scale of the site.

Whilst wondering around the site, it was a beautiful sunny day, we were entertained by a travelling group of Flamenco dancers, who kept us entertained for about an hour. It was a hot day, but those dancers kept going, dancing to live guitar, percussion and singing, In my view as good as any show you can see in the evening!

Also around the site are such attractions as ice cream sellers and boat trips. The location is also frequented by dog walkers and other users. But it must be said the location is very clean and there is plenty of space to find a quiet corner to doze, have a picnic, read a book and relax. This site is well worth a look if visiting Seville, but allow about 2-3 hours to walk around the park, maybe longer if you wish to watch dancers or wish to spend some time admiring the beautiful architecture and ceramics.

Without being dramatic this beautiful park stole our hearts during our time in Seville. By daytime it offers beautiful views of the symmetrical Plaza with benches to stop and admire the view (or in our case have lunch).
The park itself has museums which are stunning buildings, alongside lovely gardens and ponds.
We did the cycle tour on a 2 pedal cart in the early evening which was both fun and romantic. We paid €24 for the hour but loved every minute as the sun started to set the park looked different again.
After our meal and in darkness we headed back to explore under the lights and again it was a beautiful experience.
The fact this park is free and so well maintained is really impressive. We seen flamemco dancers performing and a lone musician with violin.
Would recommend visiting and make aure you have room on your camera roll. Full video on our youtube channel.

Nice enough square made for Hispano-American exhibition in the 1920s. There are murals around the outside depicting Spanish cities with a famous moment in their history and the city’s crest. Most people seem to take a row boat around the little river (€6 for boat of up to four people for 45 minutes, €10 if you end up going over). You can also hire bikes or pedal cars to go around the park - a great place for a picnic. A few stalls selling drinks but not much in the way of eateries

Plaza de Espana is an amazing plaza that showcases fantastic architecture. There is no entry fee for this exhibit and it’s located within walking distance of Seville city centre. The only downside of the plaza is the sheer amount of tourists which makes taking good pictures difficult.

In a city with so many "must-see" places, it's hard to rate one above the other. Plaza de España is probably the most photographed location in Sevilla, and deservedly so; it's beautiful. Plaza de España certainly lived up to my expectations, and even exceeded it; which is difficult to do with extremely popular places.
So much has been said about this place, which many may recognize from the films Lawrence of Arabia and The Phantom Menace, that I'll save you from more descriptions. It's a wonderful place to visit, to wander, to relax, and to contemplate.
You may be lucky enough to happen across some Flamenco while you are there; we were, and while it may seem a touristy thing to do, rowing a boat through the water feature (6 euro) was a fun part of our experience, and gave us a different perspective of Plaza de España.
It's especially magical when the sun is low in the sky and the reds and oranges of building really glow.
