The “grandness” of Seville’s Plaza de España translates not only across languages but also across time and space. The city’s symbolic square has served as the location set for films like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars Episode II . But visitors won’t see any camels or starships here, rather what they’ll get are the beautiful mansions-turned-museums surrounding an open space of Art Deco design. The plaza was originally built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition by architect Aníbal González, and it has been an enduring attraction ever since.

This plaza is easily located as it is very close to the marina and the ferry port with the tram track being within easy reach.
There are several monuments here with the most distinctive being the memorial to the 39 residents of the island who fought and died on Franco's side in the Civil War in the 1930s. Controversial or not it is hard to miss the memorial and with it's location on the seafront it makes a good meeting place and a good starting point when exploring the city.
The plaza is located very near the main shopping streets and there are several bars and restaurants when the sight seeing gets too much or you want a spell of people watching!
The exquisite Plaza de España is one of the many architectural treasures in Seville. This thoroughly Spanish city is a testament to the country’s vast cultural heritage. Let’s make 2020 the year you do something amazing!

Look at the bits and pieces of the journey, let the autumn of inscribed in a beautiful memory
