Located within the park, this building mixes different styles and uses.
A building with plenty to see.
In 'plaza de España', you'll find this building in the Maria Luisa park which may be visited from Tuesday to Sunday. The 'Pabellón Mudéjar' is nowadays home to Seville's 'Museo de las Artes y Costumbres Populares' (Museum of Arts and Traditions). This pavilion was built between 1911 and 1914, and was the work of Aníbal González for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition, but it had another name at that time, which was the 'pabellón de Arte Antiguo'. You'll see that the building is in front of a lake and it forms part of the regionalist architectural movement, which recovers materials from periods in the past. For example, you'll be able to check that it has elements of Neo-Mudejar art, which mixes Caliphal, Mozarab, Almohad and Nasrid styles. The real beauty of this building lies in its exterior but the 'Museo de las Artes y Costumbres Populares' was inaugurated inside the Mudejar Pavilion in 1972 and you will have the luck to see the only expository glass display case in the lobby which was made for the Ibero-American Exposition.
