Photographer's Note

Seville is the capital of Andalusia.

In 1929 Seville hosted the Spanish-American Exhibition and numerous buildings were constructed for the exhibition in Maria Luisa Park. On the Park's edge was built the current Plaza de España (Spain square) to showcase Spain's industry and technology exhibits.

The Plaza is a huge 1/2 circle (200 m in diameter) with buildings, 4 bridges, a large fountain in the center, and 48 benches, decorated with ceramic tiles and dedicated to the Spanish provinces. Today the plaza mainly consists of Government buildings, public institutions, the civil service and the military.
