PARQUE MARIA LUISA-PLAZA DE ESPAÑA
July 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, Seville experienced great urbanistic changes that modernized the city and caused it to grow, fundamentally, towards the south. These changes were promoted primarily by the celebration of the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 that brought with it the reurbanization of lands lying outside the city walls and the appearance of new architectural and landscape elements, the most important of these being the Maria Luisa Park and the construction of the Plaza de España. The first, a gift from the Princess of the same name, meant the incorporation of a truely public green zone for a city that was growing and expanding. The second, a symbol of the exposition and the great work of Aníbal González, became in no time one of the city’s best ambassadors, as one of the most visited and photographed sites in Seville.
