Designed especially for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition, Seville’s Plaza de España is a Spanish architectural marvel with Art Deco, Mudejar, and Renaissance Revival influences.

It has been built to impress and today is still doing its job with the same grandeur, evenness, and resounding triumph.

Imposing and spectacular, the square lies in Maria Luisa Park as one of the greatest attractions in Seville and one of Spain’s most spectacular plazas. Surrounded by overwhelming buildings and charmingly adorned with scenic bridges and colorful tile alcoves representing Spain’s provinces, Plaza de España seems to capture not only the beauty of Seville and Andalusia, but the essence of the entire Spain.
