I decided to continue my travel series started last month with things to see in Lyon when you’re short on time and castles you should visit in France. This week I wanted to continue my travel series with another amazing European city – Sevilla (or Seville if you want to translate it in English). Located in the south of Spain, Sevilla is the capital of the Andalusia region. While it may not compare in fame with the much bigger Barcelona, or even Madrid, Sevilla is a beautiful city famous for flamenco dancing. We stayed right in the center, near Plaza de Espagna. Wherever you choose to stay, you should know that Sevilla is not a very big city. We walked every where, but public transportation is available.
Plaza de Espagna
It is a biggest square in Sevilla and a very beautiful one. It is situated in the Maria Luisa Park and it was built in 1928. The park is Sevilla’s greenest area. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time to explore the entire park, but if you do, take the time to walk through the whole park. You won’t regret it.
Plaza de Espagna consists mostly of governmental buildings. By its walls, you can see various tiled alcoves and each represents a different region of Spain. If the photos (see below) aren’t enough to make you want to visit, I’ll also tell you Plaza de Espagna was used as a filming ground for productions like Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, The Dictator and Simply Red’s song Something got me started.
