Plaza de Espa?a (Spain Square)

Plaza de Espaa - Spain Square The Plaza de Espaa (Spain Square) is a very original square and a nice example of Andalusian architecture. It was constructed between 1913 and 1916 by famous Spanish architect Anbal González on the occasion of the Ibero-American Exposition in 1929. The same architect also suggested the 3 representative buildings with their typical stylish elements, located in the square.

Each of the 3 buildings was constructed in a different architectonical style. The first building was called the Pavilion Renacimiento and now houses the Archaeological Museum. Another building is called the Pavilion Gotico and currently belongs to the municipal council and serves as one of its residence. The last building originally the Pavilion Mudjar is currently used as the Museum of Popular Art and Costumes. The Glorieta de Miguel de Cervantes in the square is decorated with ceramics illustrating his most popular stories.
