With a population of just under 700,000, you may be surprised to find out just how many amazing attractions there are in Seville. I would dare to say that there are far more things to do in Seville than in many cities in Spain, including Barcelona and Madrid and I always look forward to returning. Part of that reason could be because of Seville’s history.
Located in the southern region of Spain in Andalusia, this beautiful Spanish City was an important hub during the rule of the Muslim Moors and then later, once the New World was discovered, it played a direct role in commerce. This allowed the city to become even richer and has left us with some amazing monuments.

Plaza de España
No trip to Seville would be complete without a visit to the Plaza de España. This square has become a symbol of the city, and the best part is, it’s completely free. Situated in the heart of Maria Luisa Park, the Plaza de España is a semi-circular brick building, Renaissance/neo-Moorish in style, and serves as one of Seville’s most iconic landmarks.
The massive U-shaped building feels completely Andalusian. Plaza de España combines a long history of local styles – Baroque, Renaissance, and Mudejar – into one unique creation. Its bridges represent the four ancient kingdoms of Spain and the canals in front give it the nickname ‘Venice of Seville’.
Tourists flock here to admire its intricate tilework which represents different provinces of Spain.
