Plaza Espana

On our last full day in Seville we visited the lovely Plaza Espana, a surprisingly modern construction, built in the 1920s as an exhibition space - you can read more about it here.

It was lovely weather, 25 degrees Celsius, and such a beautiful place to wander around.

All around the edge of the Plaza buildings are beautifully tiled booths, each representing a city or area of Spain...

The pomegranate is the symbol of Granada...

Even the balustrades are beautifully decorated, I love how the blue of the paint matches the blue of the water...

The horse and carriages stop off here to admire the view...

All too soon it was time to get on the plane and fly home...

Hoping we can return again one day, if you ever get the chance to visit Seville grab it with both hands!

Just to round up my week of posts on Seville, I hope you enjoy this video below made by the Sevilla Tourist Board, watching this convinced me that the city was well worth a visit - and how right I was!

  2. I will go watch your video.. I'm glad your travels were safe and wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing them with me.. I may never get there, but I got to see it thanks to you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. I have enjoyed very much our trip to Seville with you. Thank you so much for taking the time to post so many beautiful photos for us. I can understand why you wanted to visit such a beautiful place.

  4. It looks like you had a wonderful time my dear friend and thank you for taking us along with you.

  5. This looks beautiful. I have only been to Barcelona but am keen to discover more Spain., Spanish history away from the seaside resorts. Thanks for sharing. I'm putting Seville on a 'one day I might visit' list.


I love to read your comments!
