Plaza de Espana, Seville – view from loggia running the entire building

 

This historic landmark in Seville was originally built for the 1929 worlds fair held in this city and was later developed into an expansive area of parks, boulevards and public monuments for the public to enjoy. The building designed by Anibal Gonzales is a mixture of the Moorish neo – mudejar style with 1920’s art deco which was very popular during that time frame.

 

 

 

Today the Plaza de Espana is used for a variety of central government departments including the main town hall. Expansive verandas with arched columns create beautiful design and views of the courtyard. Along the main facades are plaza alcoves of wonderful tile work depicting regional provinces. Symbolic and ornate bridges representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain cross over a crescent moat that mimics the shape of the Plaza de Espana.
