Seville, Spain, November 2002 - A man rests on an ornate bench along the walls of the Plaza de España in Seville, Spain.

The Plaza de España was designed by Aníbal González and built in 1929 when Seville hosted the Spanish-American Exhibition. It consists of a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge accessible over the moat by numerous ornate bridges. In the centre is a large fountain. Today the plaza mainly consists of Government buildings, but the beauty remains. By the walls of the Plaza are many tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain.
