About the tour

The plaza de España in Seville is a magnificent square with a decoration that combines Art Deco and Spanish Renaissance Revival, Spanish Baroque Revival and Neo-Mudéjar styles. Located at the Maria Luisa Park, this square was the dream of the visionary architect Aníbal González (1876 – 1929) who was tasked with the construction of this space to showcase a new conception of Spain after the loss of the American Empire (a combination of innovation and tradition) in the occasion of the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929.

The stunning views of the plaza contributed to make it a famous filming location, featuring in productions such as Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002) and the comedy The Dictator (2012).
