Plaza De España

My friend Sandy and I wanted to squeeze another city in before we wrap up our Spanish escapade. Since we were already in Madrid, we decided to take a day trip to the beautiful city of Seville which is just 2 hours way by AVE train. Boy, was the trip worth it! Every corner of the city was so picturesque that I ended up taking more than a thousand photos! Of course, I’ve narrowed down the photos for you to see. Trust me, it was no easy feat. It’s the reason why I wasn’t able to blog for so long. But finally, here they are!

This is the first of two travel diaries from Seville. It focuses solely on Plaza De España–a 50,000 sqm Renaissance and neo-Moorish style plaza/square situated inside Maria Luisa Park. Judging by the large size alone, you’ll understand why it deserves its own travel diary. It’s so grand! It has two towers situated at either end of the plaza and a 500-meter canal that crosses four bridges decorated in colorful ceramic tiles. Visitors can rent small boats to row along the canal, which is why the plaza is also known as the “Venice of Seville”. Aside from the ornate bridges, you’ll see a lot of the colorful ceramic tiles called azulejos on the walls and benches as well. It’s actually my favorite feature of the plaza. You’ll see why once you see my photos below.

Trivia: Did you know Star Wars was filmed here?

    Hi Camille!
    I have a top just like yours, I was wondering if it would also look good with shorts or a mini skirt?

      Yes! Pero mas maganda siguro kung shorts or a-line skirt :)

    Wow!! Absolutely breathtaking! The architecture of the place is very beautiful and has that somewhat “romantic” vibe <3

    I love your outfit here, too! Sexy naman ng off-the-shoulder ;) And I loooove your shoes! I've wanted one for a long time (the knee-length gladiators). Did you get yours at THE RAMP CROSSINGS? I saw a similar pair there and I've been planning to go back for it.

    Have you tried riding the boats? Is it available everyday? Or if there is only special occasions?

    Reply
    • Camille Co

      Yes I think everyday but I didn’t ride the boats though because I didn’t have enough time. Had to catch a train! :)

    Wow! You look so gorgeous Cams. Somehow, you remind me of Katniss Everdeen here. Girl on fire! It must be due to your flowy skirt with colors that resemble flames. I also really like that off-shoulder top! I’m so excited for part 2 of your Seville travel diary. Woohoo! Ah, can’t wait!
