Sevilla, when it’s still cold at home – Part 7

The Plaza de Espana in the Parque de Maria Luisa was built for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. The buildings at Plaza de Espana form a huge half-circle representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain.

Parque de Maria Luisa offers some nice views including numerous buildings, built for the Ibero-American Exposition.

Monte Gurugú.

Pabellón Real.

Museo Arqueológico de Sevilla.

The Real Fabrica de Tabacos de Sevilla – now part of the University of Sevilla – was the original place where the story of Carmen, the Opera from Bizet, played.

It is told, that in those days the tobacco building, where only young women were working, was safe-guarded by troops to prevent young men from entering the building. As the temperature was quite hot inside, the young ladies were only slightly clothed.

Today, the old fabrica is part of the University of Seville.

This part closes the Sevilla post.

In case you’d like to comment, it’s appreciated … and maybe you want to visit my website or my flickr page too.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.
