Opposite the Plaza de España is Maria Luisa Park (Maria Luisa Park), there is a large area of woods, we walked along the forest road to the exit of the park. There are also small gardens on both sides of the forest road, but the bugs in the numerous stables in the air always fly in front of the human face, making you unable to stay. At the entrance of the park there is a small hexagonal castle decorated with red and white horizontal stripes, which is the San Telmo Pavilion commonly known as the Queen’s Sewing Box (Costurero de la Reina).
If you go to the Maria Luisa Park, you will find yourself at the entrance, with this picturesque building in the shape of a small castle, called "Queen's Sewing Room" which was created in 1893 as a house to guard the gardens. It was the first Arabic-style building in Seville. It is currently used as a tourist office. A legend has it that Queen Maria de las Mercedes, due to illness, spent long hours at the castle sewing and that's where the name comes from;)

If you are coming from the river to the Maria Luisa park, you will pass by the Costurero de la Reina - a very small building that is cute to see, but nothing more.
We had not planned to go here but we stumbled upon it as we drove past. A guard house in a previous life although well kept and worth a visit.
