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.

Park view.

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.
