The Plaza de España is one of the iconic landmarks of Seville and a popular tourist attraction. As you can see, it is a grand semi-circular building with a canal in front. Built at the two ends of the building are the imposing towers that are visible all over the city.

The image shows the south wing of the building. The south tower is at the end, and the pavilion in the middle. The bridge over the canal connects the building to the plaza in front.

Built in 1928 to showcase Andalusia in the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929, the Plaza de España reflects the multi-cultural roots of Andalusia with its architecture and decoration.
