A city with great historic value, the monuments and patrimony of this city are almost endless, this is also a large city with a great old quarter, which makes it a valuable city to visit.
Outstanding constructions are the Cathedral, the Giralda Tower, the Real Alcázar, Orange Square, Hercules Avenue , many museums and Palaces.
A special mention is made of the Plaza España which is the most important construction of the Expo of 1929 in the Maria Luisa park. Designed by Sevillian architect Anibal Gonzalez, it includes all the historic architectural styles in a large semi-circular space with a radius of 100 meters. The building is located on the edge of the radius and has large logia on the ground floor and has a tower on either end; all made of red brick. In front of it there is a large semi-circular pond which is crisscrossed by several small bridges. Next to the façade there are several benches which are noteworthy because they have tiles and on the back are the coats of arms of the Spanish provinces.
Palace of Las Dueñas
The Palace of Las Dueñas is one of the legacies of the House of the Albas in which over 5 centuries of history can be viewed in a marvellous tour of its gardens, salons and patios full of art and history.
The architectural interest of this building, which is an example of Sevillian noble architecture is to be found in the blend of Gothic and Mudejar styles. The main attraction of Las Dueñas is the combination of majesty of the building itself with its patios and gardens and the attractive collection of paintings, sculptures, tapestries and Antique objects of great historical and artistic value.
Originally it was the palace-home of the Pineda family, lords of Casa Bermeja. After them the palace was inherited by Don Fernando Enríquez de Ribera, II Marquis of Villanueva del Río and father of Antonia Enríquez de Ribera who married Fernando Álvarez de Toledo in 1612 who would be the future sixth Duke of Alba. Ever since then the palace belongs to the House of Alba.
A curious fact is that one of the residents and Administrator of the Palace was Antonio Machado Álvarez and he was the father of one of the greatest Spanish poets, Antonio Machado who was born in 1875.
