From another world

It's no coincidence that the Plaza de España has been the set for many movies (Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars, etc.) thanks to its masterful architecture. Anibal Gonzélez designed multiple buildings from the Ibero-American Expo of 1929 but this is definitely the high-point. It's simply so photogenic that I never get tired of snapping it from all angles.

An alcove for each spanish province

Perhaps one of the most famous squares in Spain; certainly, one of the most visited in Seville.

This is a very large and spacious square, adorned with a beautiful fountain and surrounded by a waterway.

The peculiarity of this place is that it has an alcove for each Spanish province, and of course, one is thrilled to see their province reflected in the middle of Seville. On the alcove mural, is the coat arms and something characteristic of the province.

It is a must; if in a Calash and not very hot, even better.

Beautiful colour scheme

It is a curious place, the Plaza de España in Seville. It has a beautiful and spectacular colour scheme.

I found it curious to walk through this example of regional architecture, world famous for being one of the locations in the Star Wars prequel trilogy, where they filmed the scene on Naboo in which Anakin Skywalker escorted Padme Amidala.

Figure in the plaza

The Plaza de España was beautiful, mystical, absolutely captivating; the grand space seemed to stretch on endlessly. I was alone and he was alone, the figure in the distance. Together in the plaza, we shared the feeling of being alone.

By country

It must be hard to find a style that would pool not only features and architectural techniques of each Spanish region but also its character. So short of made it up. Not exclusively for Spain Square in Seville, although it was the crucible in which the united and merged many of the stylistic experiments of what was called Andalusian regionalism, with nods to the Moorish and baroque remains of the former greatness of the country . Because obviously, in those years of the early twentieth century, the Spanish panorama was quite confused, troubled and even disoriented. In full Second Republic had to keep proving the sublime grandeur of Spain and the union (with some desmembering) of the people who formed it. So American Exhibition was to be showcase Spanish Empire almost collapsed. He commissioned the architect Aníbal González creating a space to demonstrate that union and embrace the feeling that united all the peoples of Spain. Aptly, the architect outlined the idea in a semicircular shape brick like fashion encircling arms and Vatican, with spacious rooms and corridors and decorated all with Seville tiles lot. Two very elegant towers topped the ends of these architectural members and provide a framework for a large pond and several recreational areas that ran out of decorating with many banks and representations of each of the provinces and cities Spanish in Seville precious polychrome tile. You can access the second floor (or) by a giant staircase buildings (which reminded me to space painted by Ribera in the Government Palace of Mexico City) and admire from above the set in all its glory. A splendor based on the characteristic of Spain was left behind, dying and not knowing he would face one of its worst demons Civil War.

Haciendo patria

Debió ser difícil encontrar un estilo que aunara las características no sólo técnicas y arquitectónicas propias de cada región española sino también su idiosincrasia. Así que poco menos que se lo inventaron. No exclusivamente para la plaza de España sevillana, aunque sí que fue el crisol donde de unieron y fundieron muchos de los experimentos estilísticos de lo que se dio en llamar regionalismo andaluz, con guiños al mudejar y al barroco, restos de la antigua grandeza del país.
Porque claro, en aquellos años de principios del siglo XX, el panorama español estaba bastante confundido, convulso y hasta desorientado. En plena II República había que seguir demostrando la excelsa grandeza de España y la unión ( con algún desgaje) de los pueblos que la formaban.
Por eso la Exposición Iberoamericana debía ser escaparate del casi desmoronado Imperio Español.
Se encargó al arquitecto Aníbal González la creación de un espacio que demostrara esa unión y el sentimiento de abrazo que unía a todos los pueblos de España. Acertadamente, el arquitecto resumió la idea en una forma semicircular de ladrillo visto, como brazos envolventes y a la manera vaticana, con amplios espacios y corredores, adornado todo ello y en gran cantidad con azulejería sevillana.
Dos elegantísimas torres rematan los extremos de esos miembros arquitectónicos y sirven de marco a un gran estanque y varios espacios de esparcimiento que se acabaron de adornar con multitud de bancos y representaciones de cada una de las provincias y grandes ciudades españolas en valiosísimo azulejo policromado sevillano.
Se puede acceder a la segunda planta del ( o los) edificios por una gigantesca escalera ( que me recordó mucho al espacio pintado por Ribera en el Palacio de Gobierno de Ciudad de México) y admirar desde arriba el conjunto en todo su esplendor.
Un esplendor basado en el propio de la España que quedaba atrás, agonizando y sin saber que se enfrentaría a uno de sus peores demonios, la Guerra Civil.

Plaza de espana

Seville is a city of narrow alleys, and full of shadows. There is always noise of cars and it's almost like the city never sleeps, but the nap. In my street, Street Fair, every Thursday, there is a market for everything you can imagine. There are many people in an alley and is incredible to see. It is a nice city but not much grass in the city. My city in the United States has plenty of grass, and large spaces in each direction. So my corner of Seville is the Plaza of Spain. For me, it is the most beautiful of the whole world. Were built for the 1929 World Exposition. I like that there is a story inside the square. I guess all that the Spanish were here for the exhibition and it's amazing. There are boats that can be rented and a water fountain in the middle of the square. The source is surrounding by many banks, each called by a province of Spain. I love feeling in banks and read and sunbathe. The colors are magnificent banks. There are lots of blue and yellow and I remember the Alcazar. Each side of the square is very artistic and beautiful. The floor is tiled and so much attention to detail is beautiful. My favorite part of the Plaza of Spain is that many lawn. I can feel the grass and I feel like my home in the states. I like the big space you have. Not many buildings in a small space. Only one and it's great. I like to take a sandwich and my wife came here with my friends. We can feel the grass and chat and pass the time. Every day I come here is a wonderful day.

La plaza de espana

Sevilla es una ciudad de callejones estrechas, y llenos de sombras. Siempre hay ruido de los coches y es casi como la cuidad nunca duerma, menos la siesta. En mi calle, Calle Feria, en cada jueves, hay una mercado con cada cosa que se puede imaginar. Hay muchísima gente en un callejón y es algo increíble a ver. Es una ciudad bonita pero, no hay mucho césped en el cuidad. Mi ciudad en los Estados Unidos tiene mucho césped, y espacios grandes en cada dirección. Por eso, mi rincón de Sevilla es la Plaza de España. Para mí, es el lugar más hermosa del todo mundo. Se construyeron para Exposición del Mundo de 1929. Me gusta que hay una historia adentro de la plaza. Imagino todo que los españoles tuvieron aquí para la exposición y es increíble. Hay barcas que se puede alquilar y un fuente de agua en el medio de la plaza. El fuente está rodeando por muchos bancos, cada uno se llama por una provincia de España. Me encanta sentir en los bancos y leer y tomar el sol. Los colores de los bancos son magníficos. Hay mucho azul y amarillo y me recuerdo de el Alcázar. Cada parte de la plaza está muy artística y hermosa. El suelo tiene mucho baldosas y eso atención a los detalles es preciosa. Mi parte favorita de la plaza de España es que hay mucha césped. Puedo sentir en la césped y me siento como mi casa en los estados. Me gusta el espacio grande que tiene. No hay muchos edificios en un espacio pequeña. Solo uno y es magnífico. Me gusta a tomar una bocadillo de mi señora y venir aquí con mis amigas. Podemos sentir en la césped y charlar y pasar el tiempo. Cada día que yo vengo aquí es un día maravilloso.

Praa spain seville

The Plaza de España in Seville, built on the occasion of the Ibero-American Exposition in 1929, perfectly reproduces the architecture of the time, not to mention the Arab taste that pervades the entire art of Andalusia, one of the most spectacular architectural spaces of the city. The square is located within the Parque de Maria Luisa, their entry is near the roundabout of the Cid Campeador, exactly opposite the former Real Fabrica de Tabaco. Admission is free to the square, but to prevent vandalism closes at 22:00 hours. The semicircular shape represents the embrace of Spain and its former colonies; across the river Guadalquivir, symbolizes the way to America. The design of the square is the architect Aníbal González, who in 1929 was director of the Ibero-American Exhibition of Seville. During construction of the plaza came to work simultaneously over a thousand workers. Its total area is fifty thousand square meters, of which nineteen thousand buildings and other thirty-one thousand free area. Its construction began in 1914 and was completed in 1928. Decorated with exposed brick, marble and ceramics, which give a hint to its Renaissance and Baroque towers. It was the most expensive piece of the exhibition and the only foreign element to the original design is the central source (the work of Vicente Traver) immediately widely criticized for interrupting the empty square. The channel in the middle of the square is crossed by four bridges that represent the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. The forty-eight Spanish provinces are represented by banks supported the walls and ceramic ornaments (in alphabetical order) on these maps, mosaics and historical events and the crests of each provincial capital.

Praça espanha de sevilha

A Plaza de España em Sevilha, construída na ocasião da Exposição Ibero-americana em 1929, reproduz perfeitamente a arquitetura da época, sem esquecer o gosto árabe que invade toda a arte da Andaluzia, sendo um dos espaços arquitetônicos mais espetaculares da cidade. A praça está situada no interior do Parque de Maria Luísa, a sua entrada é próxima da rotatória do Cid Campeador, exatamente de frente a antiga Real Fabrica de Tabaco. O ingresso à praça é livre, mas para evitar atos de vandalismo fecha às 22:00 horas.

A forma semicircular representa o abraço da Espanha e de suas antigas colónias; em frente ao rio Guadalquivir, simboliza o caminho para a América. O projeto da praça é do arquiteto Aníbal González, que em 1929 foi diretor da Exposição Ibero-americana de Sevilha. Durante a construção da praça chegaram a trabalhar contemporaneamente mais de mil operários. A sua superfície total é de cinquenta mil metros quadrados, dos quais dezenove mil de edificações e os restantes trinta e um mil de área livre. Sua construção iniciou-se em 1914 e foi concluída em 1928.

Decorada com tijolos à vista, mármore e cerâmica, que dão um toque renascentista e barroco às suas torres. Foi a obra mais cara da exposição e o único elemento estranho ao projeto original é a fonte central (obra de Vicente Traver), imediatamente muito criticada porque interrompia o vazio da praça. O canal no meio da praça é atravessado por quatro pontes que representam os quatro antigos reinos da Espanha. As quarenta e oito províncias espanholas são representadas pelos bancos apoiados às paredes e ornamentos em cerâmica (em ordem alfabética); sobre esses, mapas e mosaicos com eventos históricos e os brasões de cada capital de província.

Rain in seville is wonderful.

Just hearing the word Sevilla, and produces emotion .... And is that Seville grabs you, its people, its traditions, its monuments ... I love Sevilla, but it is so great that lost charm. It has become a busy capital city, cars, tall buildings, shops ... If everything is concentrated on a single site, such as Cordoba, Segovia, merida etc ... Sevilla would be one of my favorites, but the truth is that although I loved the visit, I got so deep as to other cities .... The day we visited the city, it seemed that it had not rained in a year and every year had fallen upon us, how awful! that way the rain. Hired a turibus, and I think the worst thing we did. At 5 pm the weather gave us a truce, and when we began to enjoy the city. Precious capital, wonderful Spain Square, the Giralda, and Triana.

La lluvia en sevilla es una maravilla.

Solo oír la palabra Sevilla, ya produce emoción....
Y es que Sevilla te atrapa, su gente, sus tradiciones, sus monumentos...
Me encanta Sevilla, pero es tan grande que pierde encanto.
Se ha convertido en una capital muy transitada, coches, edificios muy altos, tiendas ...
Si todo se concentrara en un mismo sito, como córdoba, segovia, merida etc... Sevilla seria una de mis favoritas, pero la verdad es que aunque me encanto la visita, no me a llegado tan adentro como otras ciudades....
El día que nosotros visitamos la ciudad, parecía que no hubiese llovido en un año y todo lo del año hubiese caído sobre nosotros, que barbaridad!!! que manera de llover.
Contratamos un turibus, y creo que es lo peor que hicimos.
A las 5 de la tarde el tiempo nos dio una tregua, y fue cuando empezamos a disfrutar de la ciudad.
Preciosa capital, maravillosa la plaza de España, la giralda, y triana.

Spain square seville, between tiles and mara luisa park

In the world must have many places of Spain. Right now I'm reminded of those of Madrid, Barcelona or Rome where I have never been physically. Cadiz Also, because I live there and where is the monument to the Cortes of 1812. I have visited several times the Plaza of Spain in Seville, I've seen on TV and internet and in films since, as is well known, has been the scene of some of them, including Star Wars Episode II, The War clones and above all, at least for me, Lawrence of Arabia. And the Plaza of Spain, the main building of the Ibero-American Exhibition in Seville in 1929, is an ideal setting not only for shooting but also for many other things that are of interest to trav @, ranging from rest to cultural tourism through Photo conducting, among others. And if it forms an architectural ensemble built on the famous Maria Luisa Park that interest multiplies. If we stick to our place, highlight of it being a space of ample proportions, about 50 000 m2 of which 19 000 are built, along a canal, the last time I was fortunately had water, crossed by 4 bridges that certain times can be crowded. The square is semi-elliptical shape and symbolizes the embrace of Spain with its former colonies. Among its main buildings and highlight the end towers. The buildings are made of brick, pottery, wrought iron and carved marble and has clearly inspired Renaissance. You know: if traveling to Sevilla stop and visit the Plaza of Spain. Thank you.

La plaza de españa de sevilla, entre azulejos y el parque de maría luisa

En el mundo debe de haber muchas plazas de España. Ahora mismo me vienen a la memoria las de Madrid, Barcelona o Roma en las que nunca he estado físicamente. También la de Cádiz, porque resido allí y donde se encuentra el monumento a las Cortes de 1812.

He visitado varias veces la Plaza de España de Sevilla, la he visto por la tele e internet y en algunas películas ya que, como es de sobra conocido, ha sido el escenario de algunas de ellas, entre otras Star wars episodio II, La Guerra de los clones y sobre todo, al menos para mí, Lawrence de Arabia.

Y es que la Plaza de España, edificio principal de la Exposición iberoamericana de Sevilla de 1929, es un escenario ideal no sólo para rodajes sino para otras muchas cosas que pueden interesar al viajer@ y que van desde el descanso hasta el turismo cultural pasando por la realización de fotos, entre otros. Y si además la misma forma un conjunto arquitectónico integrado en el famoso Parque de María Luisa ese interés se multiplica.

Si nos ceñimos a nuestra plaza, destacaremos de ella que es un espacio de amplias proporciones, unos 50 000 m2 de los que 19 000 están edificados, bordeado por un canal, la última vez que estuve afortunadamente había agua, atravesados por 4 puentes que a determinadas horas puede estar muy concurrido. La plaza tiene forma semielíptica y simboliza el abrazo de España con sus antiguas colonias. De entre sus edificios destacaremos el central y las torres de los extremos. Las construcciones están realizadas con ladrillo, cerámica, hierro forjado y mármol labrado y tiene clara inspiración renacentista.

Ya saben: si viajan a Sevilla no dejen de visitar la Plaza de España.

Gracias.

Una meraviglia

Siviglia, la capitale di Andalusia, una città che splende nel sole, tanti monumenti, una ricca storia, le feste e allegria. La Piazza di Spagna nel Parco Maria Luiza e un posto che da tanta tranquillità, colori, elementi architettonici e proporzioni in una bella armonia. Il posto e stato costruito per l’Esposizione Iberoamericana del 1929, lo stile ispirato dalla Rinascita con tanti elementi tipici della città, mattone apparente, ceramica e ferro. Attraente la sua forma semicircolare, le due torre collegati con delle gallerie. La decorazione con azulejos delle panchine, ognuna rappresenta una provincia con tutta la sua storia. L’acqua e qui un elemento d’architettura, una bella riflessione nei bacini d’ acqua per tutti gli costruzioni. Nel centro della piazza, una fontana che rinfresca nel estate e sempre decorativa. Una passeggiata in carrozza sarà un ricordo romantico. Mi piace visitare questo posto la mattina presto, arrivo dalla cattedrale sempre a piedi, guardare intorno a te e affascinante. Trovi tanti angoli per fotografarli e poi un bel riposo nella Piazza di Spagna. Un posto che mi e rimasto nel cuore, lo trovo sempre con piacere.

One of the most representative icons ...

One of the most representative icons of Seville and one of the things I most proud of Seville is the Plaza of Spain. We could say that constitutes one of the most spectacular of contemporary architecture. The work begins on the Seville architect Aníbal González in 1914 in order to be the flag of Spain in the Latin American Exhibition of 1929 (opened by Alfonso XIII). It was completed in 1928 by another architect, Vicente Traver and marked out by her own regionalist line of the time. The building is circular shape symbolizing the embrace of Spain and its former colonies and overlooks the river as a way forward for America. It is decorated with exposed brick, marble and ceramics giving a touch of Renaissance and Baroque towers. The square is bordered by a canal crossed by 4 bridges that represent the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. Around the square are all 48 banks that refer to the 48 Spanish provinces and some of its historical facts. It was the most expensive work exposure. The fame of the Plaza of Spain crosses borders being in 1999 when filmmaker George Lucas's chosen to be the scene of one of his films of the Star Wars, making it part of one of their imaginary kingdoms.

Uno de los iconos más representativos de Sevilla y una de las cosas de las que más se enorgullecen los sevillanos es la plaza de España. Podríamos decir que configura uno de los espacios más espectaculares de la arquitectura contemporánea. La obra la comienza el arquitecto sevillano Aníbal González en 1914 con el fin de que fuese el pabellón de España en la Exposición Iberoamericana de 1929 (inaugurada por Alfonso XIII). Fue terminada en 1928 por otro arquitecto, Vicente Traver y destaco por su marcada línea regionalista propia de la época.
La forma del edificio es circular lo que simboliza el abrazo de España y sus antiguas colonias y mira hacia el río como camino a seguir hacia América. Está decorada con ladrillos vistos, mármol y cerámica dándole un toque renacentista y barroco en sus torres. La plaza esta bordeada por un canal cruzado por 4 puentes que representan los 4 antiguos reinos de España. Al rededor de toda la plaza hay 48 bancos que hacen referencia a las 48 provincias españolas y a algunos de sus hechos históricos. Fue la obra más costosa de la exposición.
La fama de la Plaza de España traspasa fronteras siendo en 1999 cuando el cineasta George Lucas la escoge para que sea el escenario de una de sus películas de La Guerra de las Galaxias, convirtiéndola en parte de uno de sus reinos imaginarios.
