Located at the entrance of Parque de María Luisa is the monumental Plaza de España, the landmark symbol of the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. Borrowing unique elements from Renaissance Revival, Neo-Mudéjar, Baroque, and Art Deco, Plaza de España represents the thematic embrace of Spain and its provinces. Each is represented in a series of decoratively tiled alcoves. The plaza is a popular gathering place for street vendors, horse carriages, and tourists. People can even rent small boats for paddling around in the huge canal that surrounds the plaza complex. Plaza de España is a great place to snap some impressive photographs before moving on to nearby museums such as Museo Arqueolólogico, Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares, Casa de la Ciencia, and Teatro Lope de Vega Sevilla.
