Plaza España is one of the main landmarks of Sevilla and rightly so, it will leave you speechless. The plaza was built in 1928 and it was designed Aníbel González. It is located on the Maria Luisa Park.
The plaza is a half circle with connecting buildings and accessible through one of the four bridges, each of which represent Spain’s kingdoms. Over the moat, boats are available for rent.
At the center of the plaza stands the Vicente Traver fountain and a part of the walls feature many tiled alcoves, which represent each providence in Spain. On the floor under the alcoves, a map of each providence is depicted.
The purpose of its construction was to host the World’s Fair exposition and a huge part of the city was also developed for this reason with gardens, boulevards, and more. Today Plaza España houses many government departments.
Plaza España is truly one of those places that can simply not be put into words and pictures never quite do it justice. To be able to fully appreciate its grandeur, you must see it with your own eyes. Every details, however small it is, will leave you speechless.
