La Plaza de la Encarnación

The gateway to the Encarnación district, the most typically Sevillian area in the old quarters.

The actual design of the Plaza de la Encarnación is thanks to the German architect Jürgen Mayer. The Metropol Parasol redesign project of this hundred-year Seville square has undergone the construction of six laminated wooden parasols which provide an enormous and welcome shade for everyone who passes by, and at the same time preserves the archaeological remains of ancient Hispalis.

The square is an important hub of internal traffic communication in the old quarters and most metropolitan buses going to the centre of Seville stop here. This provides easy access for both locals and visitors alike from this square to the old quarters of Seville allowing them to enjoy and discover the secrets of the Encarnación district.

The sense of humour amongst Seville’s locals has resulted in them fondly referring to the square as the “square of the mushrooms”.
