Sightseeing In Southern Spain
When looking for a country to visit and are wanting to see the sights look no further than Spain. Here are some amazing and memorable attractions in Spain for when you travel and we start with looking at sightseeing in Southern Spain.
Plaza de España
The plaza is the area of 5 soccer pitches at around 50,000 square meters, is found at Parque de María Luisa. It has an array of government buildings and has a stunning water area around the large building. A great pastime for those with young children is to ride round the 500 metre canal with 4 bridges on the mini boats and with this, it’s known as the Venice of Seville. The Plaza has also been used for many movies, including one of the Star Wars franchise which is pretty cool. A stunning place for travel lovers and just a small sample on what Seville has to offer.
Sightseeing in Southern Spain is incomplete without visiting this beautiful structure. While Metropol Parasol can be found in an older part of Seville, it does not look like it. It was designed by a German architect which was completed in 2011. It is around 85 ft tall and for a small entrance fee you can take a trip to the top where the real beauty is. The views over Seville are amazing and there are even guides to help you identify what other major buildings you can see around you. It’s not a place that a lot of tour operators take you due to the small cost of entrance but those who have not visited here are really missing out on an amazing Southern Spain travel attraction.
