This square is one of the most beautiful places in Seville which doesn't leave anyone feeling indifferent.
You are in Seville's most important square and one of the most spectacular in the city. When Alfonso XIII saw it in 1928, he said: “Gentlemen, I knew it was beautiful, but not as much as this”. This is how it is. 'Plaza de España' is located in a side of the park named 'Maria Luisa', which is near San Bernardo railway station in the heart of the city centre. You can enter this square from the avenues named 'Isabel la Católica' and 'Portugal', or the street known as 'Nicolas Alpériz'. Aníbal González was the architect who was in charge of this Sevillian gem that was finally inaugurated by Alfonso XIII during the 20th century. As 'plaza de España' is such a colourful place, you'll be surprised by the details on the walls behind the benches which surround the square. Let yourself fall in love with the decoration of its painted tiles, which depict the 48 Spanish provinces.
