    Imagine visiting the Plaza de Espana in Sevilla, Spain during the Festival of Sevilla in April of 2023. The gardens are filled with a variety of plants and trees, with the sweet scent of orange blossoms in the air. Visitors can rent a rowboat and lazily float down a short stream or hire a horse and carriage for a leisurely ride. The highlight of the visit is the stunning building with its many tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain. The street performers doing traditional Spanish Flamenco steal the show with great dancing and guitar performances that rival any paid tourist trap theater in the area. This experience is a must-see for anyone visiting Seville.

    MAGNIFICENT !!!
    Architecturally speaking, this site c 1928 is simply magnificent!!!......a real feast for the senses and amazing photo ops!! The site is a mix of Art Deco, Baroque Revival, Moorish Revival and Renaissance Revival design. There are many gorgeous tiled alcoves designed in tribute to cities and regions in Spain. We saw a few Flamenco dancers while visiting and also visitors taking carriage rides. Nearby is Maria Luisa Park and Plaza de America which are also wonderful to visit !

    Essential viewing in a first trip to Seville
    Whatever time of day you visit Plaza de España, it is truly breathtaking! The sheer size of the plaza makes it feel that it’s never crowded, even if it is the most popular place to visit in Seville. If you’re from Spain, don’t miss finding the section dedicated to each province with tiles dedicated to history. It’s a must see on a trip to Seville, but I wouldn’t recommend you have to stay for hours! There was lots of flamenco dancing going on when I visited on a sunny Sunday April afternoon. Altogether pleasant - but bring water! And look for the shade!

    A must-see
    We were treated to a free Flamenco performance by some very talented Spanish dancers on the steps of the central plaza. We very much enjoyed the music and dance and walked around the plaza, however we were mercilessly pursued by swarms of gnats the entire time! Probably breathed in a couple hundred that day! Too many gnats - but amazing place!

    Visually impressive
    A wonderful large structure that dominates the plaza setting, which includes Venice like canals. Free to wonder various levels and enter a well put together military museum. Surrounding parklands a pleasure to walk through. Easy to get to by foot from cetre pf town.

    don't miss this even if you only have very limited time in Seville
    IMHO this is the #1 scene in Seville -- I am not saying the others are not good, but they are not so unique after you have seen so many other churches, cathedrals, squares, towers, and palaces in other parts of Spain, especially after seeing Alhambra. But this is one place you wouldn't find anywhere else that makes Seville worth visiting. So you can skip any other places if you are short on time, but not here.

    Beautiful place to visit.....the Spanish Venice!
    We visited in May and was in awe of the beautiful buildings and the rowing lake. It was absolutely stunning. The bridges over the lake were so ornate and had been tiled with love. There were 52 mosaic tiled areas to represent the 52 Spanish provinces. Well worth a visit and a walk through the surrounding park areas.

    Great way to spend a morning...
    Great way to spend a morning and just a 20 minute stroll from Hotel Dona Maria and the cathedral. Plaza de Espana is an extraordinary semicircular building with its own little waterway and a spectacular fountain. Was rated 1/407 things to do in Seville when we went in May...

    Great setting
    What a great place! Well worth a visit. Beautiful architecture and tiling. Fountain in the centre. Lovely place for a stroll. There's also a military museum on the site if you are interested to visit. Somewhere to get tea/ coffee/ water would have been good.

Phenomenal place to go to capture la alma de Espana. This location just has an energy all of its own! Amazing architecture, great backdrop for innumerable pictures. We were able to catch an impromptu flamenco performance which was great fun with the crowd. People from all over the world having a great time. Only problem is no public facilities close by.

We enjoyed our visit to the Plaza de Espana in Seville.
There is a shaded area for walking and cool spots for sitting and enjoying the Plaza.
While we were there we enjoyed some Flamenco which was an unexpected delight.
There is a cafe here but we did not use it.
The Plaza is an easy 20 minute walk from the centre of Seville.

Don't believe the hype. This may look good on your Instagram feed but it's just a modern construction and here's nothing much to see or do here.

It really is a delightful sight. What with the lovely stylish buildings in attractive stone, colourful seating portraying Spanish regions and of course the languid Venetian style canal.

It was a perfect place to wander for a time in the warm afternoon sunshine.

Loved the Plaza de Espana. It’s like the Venice of Andalusia with its bridges and the ‘gondolas’. Nice to walk around and take in the atmosphere

This was my favourite thing I did in my trip to Seville!
It was amazing!! I recommend going at sunset because it’s gorgeous.
It’s just so beautiful and then you have musicians and flamenco dancers around aswell.
There’s also little row boats to go on.
It’s just amazing.

Such a glorious building and the best building I've ever seen. Star wars was filmed here! Check it out online.
The views are awesome, the building is superb.
The fountain was fan, I had flip flops on so cooled my feet in the shallow outer ring. It was beautiful! The fact it is free is a bonus!!

Nice place for people to hang out - Beijing has Tiananmen Square, London has Trafalgar square , New York has time square , Seville has Plaza Espana .

Nice place to destress and great open spaces - 1 great thing about Seville is that it has many spacious parks with shady trees that during spring time are so fragrant from the oranges that grows on it . This place is great to hang out with family members to admire the activities, watch impromptu flamenco dances etc. . A great Jace to spent an hour or so enjoying a relaxing area after lining up to enter the cathedral or the palace (read my reviews on how to avoid the lines )

2nd visit here and was blown away again. A must see when visiting Seville. I nearly didn't go this time as was on a stag but so glad I did. Went shortly after 8am which I'd highly recommend as there was hardly anyone there. Quickly filled up. An amazing place, an easy 5 star

Das not look good from outside but inside! Full of history, I like the mosaics about almost every city in Spain. It could be more renovated, but still impressive for me.
