Aníbal González

08 Aug 2022

One the greatest architects Spain has known. González was born in Seville, 1876, and died at the age of 53. The man was an important architect for Madrid and especially Seville, because he designed the Plaza de España.

He was the chief architect of the Ibero-Amercian World Exposition in 1929 in Seville. Unfortunately, he passed away in one of his most glorious years, in 1929 during the world exposition.

Buildings that were designed by González are the pavilions at Plaza de España (Mudejar pavilion, Fine Arts pavilion and Royal pavilion), Plaza de España and the Alfonso XIII Hotel.The Alfonso hotel was built just for the exposition and is the most expensive hotel in Seville.

The Mudejar pavilion is now used as a museum of arts and popular customs of Seville. The Fine Arts pavilion is used as a archeology museum, but it’s being restored for years.Right now, in Seville, Aníbal has a statue at the Plaza de España. So that he will never be forgotten
