Plaza de España in Seville, Spain

Tile at the Plaza de Espana in Seville Spain.

Designed by Aníbal González the Plaza de España in the Parque de María Luisa was built to showcase Spain’s industry and technology exhibits at the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair. Now it is mainly government buildings.

You can rent small boats to row around the canal, or just walk and sit in one of the tiled alcoves that each represent a different province of Spain.

It’s a nice place to slow your pace, sit and take a break, even grab an ice cream cone from a nearby vendor. We probably leisurely walked around for 30 minutes after spending several hours at the Alcazar. Definitely worth a stop if you are in Seville, but won’t take too much time to see if you are short on time.
