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.

This is one of the most beautiful and awesome buildings I have ever seen. I'm glad I was able to see it during the day and at night. The brickwork is unbelievable. You can spend hours here looking and marvelling at the details. The water feature is nice. The towers on the ends are delicate and graceful. Located in the park this is just one of many stops and sights to see. It's hard to imagine this being built so long ago and being as cool as it is. Go there.
Plaza España, is one of the most emblematic, beautiful and magical places of our city. The Plaza de España is a building with beautiful architecture and tiles all around. You can visit the museums there. In the center of the square there is a large fountain and a pond with ducks, pigeons, etc., where you can walk and cross the pond in a boat, for a few minutes. The square is surrounded by the Maria Luisa park, a park where you can walk, etc, there are also bars where you can eat and drink something. You can take photos wherever you want and surely that by living the experience, you will return
Amazingly beautiful place! You can hire boats on the water or horse carriages or just bask in the sun admiring the buildings! Just note there aren't any food stalls inside the park and it's a bit of a walk from the main tourist part of town near the cathedral so stock up on tapas and wine before heading there!
Plaza where all the regions and cities of Spain are represented on beautiful stone benches with decorated tiles in a half circle with water surrounding. Green and indeed romantic place. It's very nice here to walk around, discover the regions and relax a bit. And of course there are wonderful photo-opportunities!
It’s a fantastic place for its antiquity and everything it brings to Seville, has several things for the entertainment of its visitors such as boat rides and horse carriages. Also their pigeons are characteristic because people are going to feed them, it is usually a very busy place for photographic sessions. I really like to go because it gives me peace and tranquility.
