I was shocked by all the commotion that, somehow, seems harmonious. From swarming tour groups to the little old lady reading her book on a nearby bench, this location draws every demographic of person. There is history from each Spanish province etched into the artistry on the tiles for those looking to reaffirm their geographical loyalties and learn about others, there are rowboats floating down the canal for the adventurous friend group, there are secluded benches by each of the north and south towers for the endeared couple, and there are people blowing massive bubbles that twinkle and dance in the wind for young children (and pigeons, alike) to chase and play.
Rich sounds of Flamenco reach every corner of the 494,410-square-foot Plaza and you feel yourself following the sounds underneath the grand arches to where brilliantly dressed dancers, guitar players, and singers gather to mesmerize tourists and locals with their cultural rhythm.
Every aspect of this place catches your eye -- at least it did for me -- and I hope that is evident as this video gives you a glimpse of one of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever been.
