Maria Luisa Park
Located on a stretch of green grounds along the Guadalquivir River, the storybook-perfect Parque de Maria Luisa was once the expansive gardens of the centuries-old San Telmo Palace. Renovated in the early 1900’s, the exquisite park still retains elements of its original incarnation—a charming, weathered pavilion stands surrounded by a pond full of swans and white doves on its banks. Mosaic benches, a jungle of ancient trees, flowerbeds, and the grand Plaza de España square contribute to the utopic vibe. For a change of pace, explore the area via horse drawn carriage, rowboat, or rickshaw bike.
