Plaza de España
Plaza de España is a square framed in the Maria Luisa park. It was designed by the Seville born architect Anibal Gonzalez as an emblematic space for the Ibero-American expo. The result of this was a palace like square with enormous proportions and lavish motifs.
The square has a total area of 50,000 square meters, without a doubt one of the most impressive squares in Spain. Along the entire perimeter of the plaza, there is a canal of 515 metres in length, which you can travel by boat, a truly unique experience.
Throughout the square there are different tiles that represent the different provinces of Spain. It has become a frequent “ritual” for Spanish visitors to take pictures in front of the tiles of their own province. Furthermore, the four beautiful bridges that cross the canal represent the ancient kingdoms of Spain.
Several film directors have fallen in love with the Plaza de España. This monument has been seen in famous films such as “Lawrence of Arabia” or Episode II of “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones”.
