NOTES: The Plaza de Espana, designed by Anibal Gonzalez, was the main building of the 1929 exhibition designed to showcase Spain's industry and technology. Gonzalez combined a mix of 1920s Art Deco and 'mock Mudejar', and Neo-Mudejar styles. Located at the edge of the Maria Luisa Park, the Plaza de Espana 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.
