A twentieth century tile location in Seville not to be missed is the Plaza de Espana dominated by a monumental brick building designed by Anibal Gonzales for the Ibero-America Exhibition of 1929. It was constructed in a semi-circle around a large square. Set against the lower half of the building are 50 tiled benches symbolising Spain's 50 provinces. Every bench has a central pictorial panel depicting a significant historical event from each province.' Extract from Hans van Lemmen, 'Tiles in Seville', TACS Journal 8. (The frog fountain is in the adjacent Parque de Maria Luisa, also described in the article.)
