It´s the lung of Sevilla, the most beautiful green space in the city, which harmoniously combines nature and history.
A long time ago, the Maria Luisa park was part of Palacio de San Telmo gardens; a huge area property of the Dukes of Montpensier for some years. After the gardens went on to become part of the city and became known by its current name.
The park was remodeled to be part of the Iberian-American Exposition in 1929. Therefore, there were built its bucolic arbors and planted a wide variety of species from the five continents. Do you know why certain plants were chosen and placed in specific areas?
Among its most successful sites is the Jardín de los Leones (the Garden of the Lions). In the interior you’ll experience an arabian garden perfumed by myrtle, where water is the main element. You’ll also discover nooks filled with wild beauty and vast meadows; a perfect place to take a break and enjoy the serenity.
In short, its distinctive, romantic atmosphere coupled with its recent 100th anniversary is an extra reason to include it on your list of places to see and visit in Sevilla.
