The Plaza de España is a plaza in the Parque de María Luisa, in Seville, Spain, built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. It is a landmark example of the Regionalism Architecture, mixing elements of the Baroque Revival, Renaissance Revival and Moorish Revival (Neo-Mudéjar) styles of Spanish architecture.
From 2007 to 2010, the Seville City Council invested 9 million euros in the restoration of the Plaza de España. The objective was to recover the original monument as the architect, Aníbal González; conceived it. To restore it, the restoration team worked to recover pieces like the ceramic streetlights, benches or even pavements. The reproduction was made based on photographs and postcards from the municipal newspaper library. Cefoarte and Diaz Cubero were some of the experts who, in multidisciplinary teams; achieved the challenge of bringing back to life the Plaza de España.
There is no entrance fee! Just walk into the Plaza and enjoy. The Plaza de España has been used as a filming location, including scenes for the 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia. The building was used as a location in the Star Wars movie series Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002) — in which it featured in exterior shots of the City of Theed on the Planet Naboo.
