The Plaza de Espana was built for the exposition of 1929. It is massive and is a lovely tribute to showcase Spain. The venue has been used in movies like Star Wars. it is hard to describe so go and see. You can walk there in 10 minutes from the center part of the Old Town and you will travel through a beautiful park.

Very central and well worth a look. Beautifully designed building and breathtaking to look at for the first time. You can walk around and its free.

It is the most gorgeous place we have visited in Seville.
Large semi circle with coaches and boating around it.
You can spend time sitting there in peace of mind. (also you can pass by the adjacent park "Maria Luisa Park (Parque de Maria Luisa))
Avoid heat in summer days.

See the whole of Spain in an hour or two !
The tiling around the Plaza is truly a work of art. The provinces and main cities are all arranged alphabetically from left to right. Each one is easy to 'read'...the name is there, a map showing its location, the main attractions/industry and a pictorial image of the place itself. Fascinating. You just have to concentrate and edit out the cries of the street vendors wandering around with their fans/postcards and castanets.
I've been twice and never managed to get all the way round yet due to being on a tight schedule with a tour group. Next time, maybe !

I went to Plaza España on my last day in the evening, when I was exhausted (all they say about the heat in Seville in August is true, try to go another time!). But this place is magical, almost like a little andalucian Venice. I am really glad I didn't miss it!
