Plaza De Espana - Review
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.

Plaza De Espana, Seville Reviews
Beautiful place. Don't miss when in Seville. It's not as old as other attractions but it has its charm. It is very grand, and makes you feel like you're in the middle of a fairy tale. You can pay to go on a boat around the square. The palace have benches dedicated to different cities in Spain. And there are a lot of other details you may notice. Exploring the place is really interesting. Highly recommended!
Such an awesome landmark to experience. Even though the Plaza itself is not very old, the architecture blends in very well with the rest of the city. It seems that everywhere you walk around the plaza affords another great picturesque view. We did not take a tour and chose simply to walk around and enjoy the beauty. Those that are Star Wars fans will recognize many of the features here from a scene in Episode II. One word of caution, watch where you walk as there is quite a bit of horse poop scattered around the main fountain.
This is just amazing. We did not look into this before we visited and were blown away by the place. It was about 34 degrees when we were there and the spray from the fountain was very refreshing. The boats were great fun and very inexpensive. The surrounding gardens and bars are great, but it is not worth going too far towards the aquarium as it's a bit deserted around there.
Its a wonderful place to spend your evening. A must visit place in Seville. Infact I think it's one of the best places of Seville. It covers a huge area with lot of space. Architecture is very beautiful. There is even a boating area and there are horse carriage rides available. It's should be a place in your bucket list for all the Photography enthusiasts.
What a beautiful place. It is a little bit far from the historical center, but it is a very nice place close to a different part of the city (more open, modern). The palace was built for the exposition and it is now a government building. All around the square there are ceramic drawings representing each Spanish province. During the summer it may be better to get there in the late afternoon, otherwise it is going to be hot.
