For its pure scale and grandeur, this huge construction is the most spectacular after the cathedral in Seville.
There are four beautiful bridges cross the canal that represents the ancient kingdoms of Spain and the two tall towers stand at the ends of the Plaza, providing the area with perfect balance.
Several film directors have fallen in love with the Plaza de España. This monument has been seen in famous films such as “Lawrence of Arabia” or Episode II of “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones”.
The Plaza is located inside Maria Luisa Park, next to Isabella La Catolica Avenue, a pedestrian avenue with ice cream vendors and bike rental stands-this is the best way to get to the park, exiting close to the Teatro Lope de Vega and Fabrica de Tabaco.
Along the entire perimeter of the plaza, there is a canal of 515 meters in length, which you can travel by boat, a truly romantic experience.
You can also enjoy and admire the banks of tiles that represent the provinces of Spain. This has become a frequent “ritual” for Spanish visitors looing to take photographs in front of the space dedicated to their province.
From the Prado de San Sebastián (served by subway, bus and tram) you can also reach the park on one hand or the river on the other.
