    The answers to the most frequently asked questions.

    When was Maria Luisa Park inaugurated?

    Maria Luisa Park is the most emblematic park in Seville and one of the oldest, since it opened its doors to the public on April 18, 1914. María Luisa Park, which was originally the private garden of the 19th century lady María Luisa Fernández de Córdoba, was put at the service of the public and became a fundamental part of the urban structure of Seville from very early on. Today, the park covers an area of more than 34 hectares, and offers a wide variety of interesting spaces for both local residents and visitors from the city, from all over Spain and from all over the world.

    When was the Plaza de España in Seville inaugurated?

    The Plaza de España in Seville is a place located in the center of Seville, Spain. A few years ago it was an important open-air exhibition center that people from all over the world visited when they traveled through Seville. Built in 1929 by Aníbal González, it is an architectural masterpiece that blends styles such as Art Deco and Spanish Renaissance, among others; the neo-Mudejar style can also be seen in some elements of the building's composition. The Plaza itself forms part of a huge semicircle and is accessible via four bridges that cross the moat surrounding the Plaza de Guardias V erdes. The center has been paved with green slabs and has two fountains in which water can still be seen flowing today, one of which bears the name of Vicente Traver . Today, the Plaza de España serves as an open space for events and mass gatherings, in addition to being the headquarters of different government agencies, such as the Department of Employment and Social Security, which deals with labor issues.

    When was the restoration of the Plaza de España in Seville carried out?

    Between 2007 and 2010 the Seville City Council invested 9 million euros in the restoration of the Plaza de España, an emblematic place that was built by the architect Aníbal González. The restoration team worked with multidisciplinary approaches to restore its ceramic lampposts, benches and even sidewalks from photos and postcards kept in its library. Specialists from Cefoarte and Díaz Cubero collaborated on the project; these creative teams used innovative approaches that blended tradition and modernity to develop restoration strategies for the Plaza de España.

    What is the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition in Seville?

    In 1929, Seville hosted a world fair to showcase Spanish and Portuguese culture. Guests were able to enjoy performances by their favorite Spanish actors, as well as operas from Portugal. Each city contributed unique delicacies and items that added wonderful flavors to the attendees' experience. Spain and Portugal had been invited to the Universal Exposition of 1925, which was held in Paris. They were unable to attend due to financial problems related to the Great Depression, but vowed then to attend the next exhibition. It took them three years, but they finally fulfilled their promise by inviting guests from all over Latin America and beyond, including: Portugal, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.

    Who built the frog fountain in Maria Luisa Park in Seville?

    Built by the ceramist Manuel García-Montalván, who made his two similar copies in the gardens of Tenerife and the Fuente de las Ranas (Chapultepec) in Mexico City, this original fountain has long been a popular symbol of Seville. The frogs are the ones that really catch the eye here: they are the real fountains, through their mouths and beaks! The tortoise is sitting happily in the center, oblivious to all this activity around him.

    Where is the Plaza de América in Seville?

    The Plaza de America is a large 'rotunda' in the Spanish city of Seville located within the Maria Luisa Park. It is flanked by the Museum of Popular Arts and Customs (neo-Mudejar style) to the north, the Archaeological Museum (neo-Renaissance style) to the south, and the Torre del Oro (Gothic style) to the east. The three buildings on the square were built between 1913 and 1916 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929, which took place in Seville in 1929.
