Plaza de España
A magnificent semi-circular square that has become a symbol of the city. Along with the adjacent building it was designed by Aníbal González for Seville's 1929 Ibero-American Expo in a style that has become known as Andalusian regionalist because it employed a mixture of architectural influences from the past including Renaissance and Gothic. The most outstanding feature is the overwhelming use of exposed red brick. The inner part of the square contains a series of glazed-tile depictions of historical scenes from every province in Spain. A canal runs around the perimeter of the square where you can hire a rowing boat or motor boat for a short pleasure trip.
plaza de espana, has to be seen to be believed, built in 1929, the sheer size of it takes your breath away, it must have been a wonder to see for the people from Seville, would love to know what it cost to build in 1929.
Amazing! Take a horsedrawn carrige ride around the city (with the most romantic and beautiful spot here at the Plaza de Espana). Loved to marvel at the individual cities displayed in tile murals all along the way. A lovely little boat ride around the (small) waterway (although it was empty while I was visiting)
I used to walk by this magnificent plaza every day for nearly three months and it is possibly the most beautiful thing in Sevilla. If you like architecture, check out the plaza from up close. They used to have water in the canals in front of the plaza, but sometimes the water is removed, which makes the plaza look a bit dirty. You can hail expensive (30 euro) rides here from men with horse drawn carriages.
I enjoy the time and eforth you have invested in displayin this pitures, hope that you can display some of the privinces it self the agricultural way of life in the old and the new world.Thank You/Grasias/kopchaiy Sincerely Adolfo and family Covarrubias.
