Matadors, flamenco and Mudejar architecture define Seville, Spain's quixotic city in Andalucia. At the city's heart, Maria Luisa Park sprawls for acres to include orange trees, Mediterranean pines, flower gardens, grottoes, a moat and vine-covered cottages. Set within the green space, fanciful Plaza de Espana, an immense semi-circle of connected buildings and archways, draws crowds year-round. Built in 1929 for a world's fair, the complex, bedecked with colorful tiles, portrays the history of ancient Spain.
