We met Hannah and Evan for their anniversary photos in Seville, Spain this past summer. Hannah and Evan travelled from Washington D.C. to Europe for a month long trip. Seville was one of their last stops before heading home and it did not disappoint. Seville is an incredible city with gorgeous old world architecture at every glance. We thought Plaza Espana and surrounding Gardens would be a perfect spot for their sunrise session. As you will see in the photos the plaza is incredible. It was designed by Aníbal González and built in 1928. Hannah and Evan it was so fun to document your time in Europe and your anniversary. We wish you many more years of happiness!
“The Plaza de España, designed by Aníbal González, was a principal building built on the Maria Luisa Park’s edge to showcase Spain’s industry and technology exhibits. González combined a mix of 1920s Art Deco and “mock Mudejar”, and Neo-Mudéjar styles. The Plaza de España complex is a huge half-circle with buildings continually running around the edge accessible over the moat by numerous bridges representing the four ancient kingdoms of Spain. In the centre is the Vicente Traver fountain. By the walls of the Plaza are many tiled alcoves, each representing a different province of Spain. Each alcove is flanked by a pair of covered bookshelves, said to be used by visitors in the manner of “Little Free Library”.”
“The Plaza de Espana was originally designed and built as the ultimate symbol and the most ambitious project of the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition World’s Fair. The initial idea of holding a World Fair in Seville was promoted in 1909 with the aim of opening the city and, especially, to modernize it. It would be the perfect occasion to achieve civil works, thus improve employment, promote the tourism, enhance the image of Seville and strengthen relationships with American countries.
The Fair was initially going to be inaugurated on April 1st, 1911. It was then delayed to 1914 but World War I (1914-1918) and political issues between Morocco and Spain delayed it further on. It was finally held from May 9th, 1929 to June 21st, 1930.”
