One cannot think up a more beautiful setting for a movie like the Plaza de Espana in Seville. It was the film set for star Wars Saga Episode II: Attack of the Clones by George Lukas, as well as for three other movies.
However, the square was not built for the movies. The Plaza de Espana in Seville represented the regionalism architecture at the Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair in 1929.
The square with a diameter of 200 meters is open to the river, a parabola for the way to America. The semi-circular building symbolizes Spain’s embrace with the former colonies.
The square is surrounded by a channel, which is spanned by 4 bridges. The bridges symbolize the former kingdoms of Spain.
The walls are decorated with ornaments, each with a historic event and the coat of arms of the 48 provinces.
Offices of the municipal authority, the government and of the armed forces are housed inside the building today.
The Plaza de Espana is very impressive, but at 42 ° C in the shade, it is not a place where we stay for a long time.
