There’s two things to see here, the plaza itself and the Mary Luoisa Park, often called the Moorish Paradise. A legacy of the 1929 Exhibition held for the purpose of showcasing Span’s art and technology, this semi circular complex is filled with alcoves, each to represent Spain’s different districts. The buildings are all decorated in beautiful ceramic tiles; there are canals down which you can navigate in small boats. The adjacent park is a feast for the soul; tiled fountains, pavilions, lush foliage, lovely walkways, birds of all colors, including a great number of green parrots. Remember to check out the fountain of lions and the water lily pool etc. The place makes for brilliant photo oppurtinities so make sure your camera’s are out; we know this because it’s been used in two Star Wars movies.

Beautiful place. The fountain does not work during early AM times, but come back because its worth it. If you get lucky, there might be some Flamenco dancers you can watch for free. Make sure to bring a tripod for photographers. Its a pretty safe place to be. No need to worry too much since police are on the prowl here for potential hard knock wanna be. Enjoy the scenery. Enjoy the history of it.
Majestic and regal! An absolute treat! Spanish architecture at its best. It so elegant that it could have a royal palace easily. And the crowing glory, the coats of arms and maps of its various cities in sumptuous colors is a rare treat. Nothing compares.
There's something about this place that's very relaxing! It is a huge space, but the closer you get to the buildings, the bridges, and the brick benches the more details of amazing ceramic work is revealed to you. You always have a rhythmic repetition of architectural elements but they're usually not the same.
Go when it’s not so hot so you can see the tiles and ceramics of the different parts of spain! It’s a beautiful place to walk around and spend a few hours; buskers, boat and horse rides, touristy but still totally authentic cos it’s so big that you will have space to roam about freely. We were there in the evening and there were beautiful rainbows on the fountains!
One of the most beautiful plazas I have ever visited. Has a mosaic of every Spanish province along the semi-circunference of the plaza. You can also get a boat and sail along its canal. Some scenes from Star Wars Episode 1 were filmed here.
