Photo: Andalusia Tourist Attraction Moorish Architecture Seville

The exquisite Moorish architecture of the central building in Plaza de Espana is up at sunset. Plaza de Espana is one of Spain's most recognizable buildings and is a top tourist attraction in the beautiful city of Seville, Andalusia, Spain.

It was in 1929 that Seville hosted the Spanish-American Exhibition, sort of a 'World's Fair' and in honour of the occasion, the government built many new buildings for the exhibition and for the tourists that were coming to enjoy it. The buildings were constructed in Maria Luisa Park and today they are some of Spain's most easily recognizable buildings.

They are a wonderful example of Moorish architecture in Spain, and this was a style that was adopted by the architects of Europe around this time that was a fascination with the romantic idea of all things associated with the Orient.

The plaza is actually shaped in a half circle, and buildings run around the entire outside with a moat in front of them and the buildings are all accessible by a series of moats that people can cross via bridges. The fountain that can be seen in the photograph is one of the focal points in the plaza, and the central building is just that; the one located in the centre of the semi-circle. As an added tourist attraction, visitors can view the exhibition by renting a boat and floating around the moat, enjoying the view and the atmosphere.
