An architectural triumph that will take your breath away.

Built in 1928 to showcase exhibits at the Ibero-American Exposition, and recently re-opened after extensive refurbishment, the Plaza de España in Maria Luisa Park is one of my favourite places in Seville. The plaza itself is a big paved semi-circle with a central fountain, and is surrounded by a boating Iake, which you cross by way of four ornately tiled bridges to reach the main building. This spectacular Neo-Mudejar construction, with its central portico and colonnades, forms a grand semi-circle flanked at each end by identical towers. Around the base of the building are the many tiled alcoves that represent all the provinces of Spain.
