The Plaza de España! If you’ve been, your eyes widen when someone mentions it. It’s an expansive plaza built on the outskirts of downtown Sevilla in 1928 for the 1929 World Fair, with blue, white, and yellow tiles galore set against soaring Spanish towers. The architecture is that beautiful mix of Roman and Moorish, or oriental, that makes up what we now think of Andalusian architecture.
The plaza is surrounded by a moat, with four tiled bridges crossing it. Rent a boat if you’d like to paddle your sweetheart around.
Those tiles… I promise you won’t be able to get enough of them!
The plaza is lined with little alcoves representing each province of Spain. As with the rest of Sevilla, it is tile heaven and bursting with color!
