Seville, Spain, November 2002 - 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.
