In anticipation for the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition, the entire southern end of Seville was renovated into a majestic expanse of verdant gardens. At the center of it all is Parque de Maria Luisa, named in honor of the youngest daughter of Ferdinand VII who donated the lands. Some of the most beautiful sites include Glorieta de los Lotos, a splendid lotus pond with a pergola and a bronze monument of Infanta Maria Luisa; Plaza de América, a part of the park known for its large population of white doves; and Costurero de la Reina (“Queen’s Sewing Box”), a small castle salvaged from the Palace of San Telmo.
