A quick history of Maria Luisa Park

The park is built on land that used to belong to Palace San Telmo, residence of the President of Andalusia. Along with the Plaza de Espana and its surroundings that were built for the 1929 World Expo, the park underwent a transformation with fountains and gardens added, along with tree lined boulevards.

Should I do the Horse Carriage Ride?

Contrary to what you'd expect of horse carriage rides in most tourist destinations, this one is actually worth it. It's short, and it covers the major sights including the park. Hire the carriage from the Alfonsi XII hotel. This way you go through the park first, and have open-ended time at other sights. The carriage takes 4 people for a 45 minute ride costing 45 Euros.
