A large area of Seville was developed into parks and this grand exhibition building in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929.
The water views were welcome on a hot afternoon, here looking towards the South Tower, where we found a little shade. Isn't this balustrading fabulous?
The plaza itself was cordoned off because they were setting up for an 'event religioso' but we were able to walk around the vast semicircular building.
Small tiled benches enclose each tiled display of the cities or regions of Spain that were represented at the Exposition, for example here is the Toledo display.
Bridges cross the river as it arcs around the square ….
and rowboats are for hire for the energetic and romantic!
Of course there were wonderful tiles …. and decorative elements everywhere …
and it was good to see the flags are still flying!
