Seville - North Tower through the Colonnades - Plaza de España

Plaza de España - Seville, Spain.


One of the Sevillanos' pastime is to take a stroll in this popular square in the city, not very far from the famous Cathedral. It is quite a large, open area with the red-brick buildings lined up in a semi-circular design. This place is also famous for being a wedding venue, which I have witnessed the first time I visited this city. There are also a couple of bridges, one of which is well-known as having been in one of the Star War's movies.


Tucked away in a quiet area of the Parque de Maria Luisa in Seville, Spain, Plaza de España was built in 1928 for the world fair, or the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. It was designed by Aníbal González and has been regarded as a fine example of the Renaissance Revival style in Spanish architecture, also combining a mix of 1920s Art Deco and Neo-Mudéjar styles.
