We had not planned to go here but we stumbled upon it as we drove past. A guard house in a previous life although well kept and worth a visit.

This is a stunning and very unusual building formerly used as a guard house that I found purely by chance on my way to Maria Louisa park.

Stunning from the outside. I spotted it from a city sightseeing bus tour, Seville. Colours were interesting similar to Al Hambra Cordoba. Sadly it was closed when I visited. Amazing piece of architecture. Hint: check when it's open, worth a visit, good camera

Looks like a little trinket box. Striking pink stripes and Moorish style windows. Pretty place which is now a tourist information centre. A couple of orange trees around it. Take a few moments out just to have a look around a take a few photos.

Built as part of the 1929 exhibition the Queen's Sewing House so named after a romantic tale of a queen who spent her time there sewing waiting for her lover. Built in the popular Mudejar style of the time.

This unique building was the sewing 'hideout' for a reclusive Spanish queen; now it houses a helpful, informative 'info. center' to help tourists visiting lovely Sevilla. Close to Maria Luisa Park.
