Parque de María Luisa
Sitting in the centre of the city is a huge expanse of parkland planted with a wide variety of trees from all over the world. This is the perfect place to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon. It has been carefully laid out with lots of space to wander among the exotic plants and numerous areas where you can sit and rest. You can rent bicycles and even take a horse-drawn carriage ride. It's named after Princess María Luisa who donated some of the land and plants from her palace gardens to start the public park. Inside, you'll find examples of all styles of architecture in the buildings erected as pavilions for Seville's 1929 Ibero-American Expo. Join one of the free guided tours given by students of the tourism school on weekends. Admission: free.
I think this is the best park I have ever visited by far. I felt so proud walking along its streets and corners, even better with a bike!There are also two museums enclosed in the park: the museum of popular culture, and an architecture one.
I remember that famous square full of "palomas blancas"...
This park is gorgeous. I would recommend renting the bikes and touring the park by that because the park is rather huge. Plus, the bikes are a ton of fun and cheaper than the horse/buggy. Make sure to check out the two museums that are enclosed in the park. One is a museum of popular culture, the other is an architecture museum. There is also 2 discotecas in the park as well. Lots of activity!!
