Plaza de la Espana, Seville, Spain, 2005

Plaza with very ambitious name, together with the whole area, was developed especially for the 1929 Spanish-American exhibition. I didn't like this space. it is advertised as monumental - spectacular but it looks and feels more like a movie set, false, untruthful and surreal.
it is not surprising that this type of architecture is called Moorish revival?
PS. I have recently find out that this plaza was a set for numerous movies, among others "star wars".
