There is something for everyone as far as the villas go in the beautiful country of Spain.

    My favorite plaza in Spain! The attention to detail in regards to the architecture is amazing from the structure of the plaza to the tile wrapped banisters on the bridges. The area is also very lively. The locals offer row boat rentals on the man made canal and romantic blissful horse carriage rides around the fountain in the center of the plaza. Regardless, the time spent in the plaza will take you back in time when the simplest things provided satisfaction.

    Very lovely plaza that looks a lot older than it actually is. It was built in the first half of the 20th century, but was done in Baroque and Renaissance styles.

    A beautiful plaza past the Santa Cruz neighborhood. It borders Parque de María Luisa. It's a lovely plaza to walk around, very big with lots of historical plaques, a huge fountain, a canal, and bridges. You can hire a horse carriage and ride around the plaza and park or take a gondola ride on the canal.

    It's one of my top sites to visit in Sevilla. While many prefer to take a horse carriage ride through here or boat through the moat, I prefer exploring this vast plaza on foot. There are Sevilla-tiled benches lining the whole plaza with each representing a region in Spain. For those unaware of what each part of Spain is known for, this walk along the benches will be very informative and yet still enjoyable since the whole plaza is so pretty.

    impresionante. Todo equilibrio. Me senti a gusto, tranquilo e intimidado por la gradiosidad de dicha plaza.

    What I liked the most about this place are the peddles around. From a man that draws caricatures to the one who sells bull figurines and postcards.

    Just walking up to the plaza, you know you're nearby. It's like stepping into another place from another time. No wonder there was a Star Wars movie filmed here. It's a massive expanse of a building/plaza that you wish was actually in use, but the emptiness lends to the aesthetics. It's slated for renovation, so that'll hopefully put the beautiful locale to better use. A photo just can't capture the grandeur of it all.

    Beautiful plaza built for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition. If you like Spanish architecture, fountains, mosaics, and gardens, this is for you.

    This plaza was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The style is moorish, with beautiful arches and tile work. I think they filmed scenes from Star Wars here.

Description

The “grandness” of Seville’s Plaza de España translates not only across languages but also across time and space. The city’s symbolic square has served as the location set for films like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars Episode II. But visitors won’t see any camels or starships here, rather what they’ll get are the beautiful mansions-turned-museums surrounding an open space of Art Deco design. The ... read more
plaza was originally built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition by architect Aníbal González, and it has been an enduring attraction ever since.
