Aníbal González. This is the name of the man that made it possible for us to enjoy a marvel like the Plaza de España in Seville today. Once you visit, you will realize that you are in front of nothing less that the spectacular and detailed architectural work of art to which you can dedicate hours without getting tired of looking at it and every time that you pass by, you will rediscover this plaza.
The Plaza de España is a place of illusion that has been used in a lot of movies, such as the noteworthy Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars: Attack of the clones, where the plaza represented the Palace in a planet called Naboo. This plaza has also been the backdrop of other works, like The Dictator, The Wind and The Lion and Manuel and Clemente. In fact, the Academy of European Film chose this space as the European Cinematographic Cultural Treasure for its great audiovisual value.
With regards to feeling like a protagonist in a Hollywood film production, don´t worry because you can feel like a star by parking your car with Parclick in one of the cheap parking garages in Seville. In addition, you will have the security of leaving your vehicle in a monitored car park for all the time you want.
When we told you that each time you go around the Plaza de España, you will discover something new, we were completely right. For example, the banks that are located in the semi-circle of the plaza represent each one of the Spanish provinces (and their decoration is consistent with the traditions of the provinces). The plaza´s orientation towards the Guadalquivir River is a show of liberalization towards South America.
Another noteworthy aspect of this plaza is the many busts that are located on some of the walls that depict the great Spanish personalities of the times – and, no, Belén Esteban is not one of them. Among the renowned heads, you will find Quevedo and Velazquez.
