Located in the Maria Luisa Park, the Plaza de España has become a symbol of Seville due to its luminosity and its regional style. A total of 14,000 square metres of brick and ceramic make up this monumental semicircle, two hundred metres in diameter, designed by the architect Anibal Gonzalez, responsible for many of the most important buildings in Seville in the first part of the twentieth century. It is flanked by two huge towers that frame a set of galleries and navigable ponds in an eclectic style. There are groups of tiles in the plaza dedicated to each of the fifty Spanish provinces, and each illustrates a singular event in the province history.
