I was lucky enough to visit in July 2020 when Seville had very few tourists due to the C19 pandemic. Apparently the square is normally very crowded due to it's location.

We walked through this plaza over and over as we visited the major sights of Seville. We especially loved seeing the carriages waiting to take people on rides through the area.
