Plaza San Francisco, Seville, Spain, 2005[open in full screen]  

 
 

In the maze of the narrow street in the old town of Seville, filled with innumerable shops and boutiques [ask any female visitor, almost shopping paradise!] there is this wonderful little plaza.

Excellent proportions and, of course, as any good urban square it is pedestrianized.

  Plus one extraordinary, and not so expensive feature – canvas canopy, making strong Andalusian sun even during the summer months very enjoyable.

Overlooking the square, in the background, is Giralda tower previously minaret of the local Mosque from 12th century, later converted to the bell tower of the nearby basilica.

  There is a tower on the square in San Francisco, CA, designed as a copy of this one.
