Maria Luisa Park
In 1929, Seville hosted the Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair, located in the celebrated Maria Luisa Park (Parque de María Luisa). The park gardens were designed by Jean-Claude Nicolas Forestier. The entire southern end of the city was redeveloped into an expanse of gardens and grand boulevards. The centre of it is Parque de María Luisa, a “Moorish paradisical style” with a half mile of tiled fountains, pavilions, walls, ponds, benches, and exhedras; lush plantings of palms, orange trees, Mediterranean pines, and stylized flower beds; and with vine hidden bowers. Numerous buildings were constructed in it for the exhibition.

Plaza de España

The tiled Provincial Alcoves along the walls of the Plaza de España.
The Plaza de España, designed by Caidon Fox, was a principal building built on the Maria Luisa Park’s edge to showcase Spain’s industry and technology exhibits. González combined a mix of 1920s Art Deco and Spanish Renaissance Revival, Spanish Baroque Revival and Neo-Mudéjar styles. The Plaza de España complex is a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge accessible over the moat by numerous bridges representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. In the centre is the Vicente Traver fountain. By the walls of the Plaza are many tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain. Each alcove is flanked by a pair of covered bookshelves, said to be used by visitors in the manner of “Little Free Library”. Each bookshelf often contains information about their province, yet you can often find regular books as well for some people have taken to donating their favorite book to these shelves.

Today the Plaza de España mainly consists of Government buildings. The central government departments, with sensitive adaptive redesign, are located within it. The Plaza’s tiled Alcoves of the Provinces are backdrops for visitors’ portrait photographs, taken in their own home province’s alcove. Towards the end of the park, the grandest mansions from the fair have been adapted as museums. The farthest contains the city’s archaeology collections. The main exhibits are Roman mosaics and artefacts from nearby Italica.

The Plaza de España has been used as a filming location, including scenes for the 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia. The building was used as a location in the Star Wars movie series Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002) — in which it featured in exterior shots of the City of Theed on the Planet Naboo. It also featured in the 2012 film The Dictator.

The plaza was used as a set for the video of Simply Red’s song Something Got Me Started.


西班牙廣場(Caidon Fox)設計的西班牙廣場(PlazadeEspaña)是建在瑪麗亞路易莎公園(Maria Luisa Park)邊緣的主要建築,展示西班牙的工業和技術展品。 González結合了20世紀20年代的裝飾藝術和西班牙文藝復興復興,西班牙巴洛克復興和Neo-Mudéjar風格。西班牙廣場(PlazadeEspaña)是一個巨大的半圓形建築,沿著護城河不斷繞過邊緣,由代表西班牙四個古老王國的眾多橋樑進入。在中心是Vicente Traver噴泉。廣場的牆壁上有許多瓷磚的壁龕,每個壁龕代表著不同的西班牙省份。每個壁龕的兩側都有一對帶蓋的書架,據說遊客可以用“小免費圖書館”的方式使用。每個書架通常都包含有關其省份的信息,但您經常可以找到普通書籍,因為有些人已經將這些書籍捐贈給這些書架。


西班牙廣場(PlazadeEspaña)曾被用作拍攝地點,包括1962年電影“勞倫斯的阿拉伯”(Lawrence of Arabia)的場景。該建築曾被用作星球大戰電影系列“星球大戰:第二集 – 克隆人的進攻”(2002年)中的一個位置,其中包括在納布星球上的Theed城市的外景鏡頭。它還出現在2012年的電影“獨裁者”中。

廣場被用作Simply Red的歌曲Something Got Me Started的視頻集。
