1. Plaza de España
You might recognise the Plaza de España from movies such as Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars or The Dictator because they all featured this impressive square. My favourite sight in Seville was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair, the building itself now houses a handful of government offices. To reach the huge semi-circular pavilion you must first cross over one of the four bridges spanning a small moat, each of which represents an ancient kingdom of Spain. You’ll then find numerous tiled alcoves, one for each Spanish province. Rowing boats are available for hire if you want a different perspective of this spectacular place.
