Seville, Spain

Matadors, flamenco and Mudejar architecture define Seville, Spain’s quixotic city in Andalucia. At the city’s heart, Maria Luisa Park sprawls for acres to include orange trees, Mediterranean pines, flower gardens, grottoes, a moat and vine-covered cottages. Set within the green space, fanciful Plaza de Espana, an immense semi-circle of connected buildings and archways, draws crowds year-round.  Built in 1929 for a world’s fair, the complex, bedecked with colorful tiles, portrays the history of ancient Spain.
