A beautiful plaza, surrounded by historic buildings, with a story attached. In 1755, a devastating earthquake hit Seville, the same earthquake that destroyed Lisbon, killing 10,000+ people. That day the Cathedral was full for Sunday mass. Cracks started to appear in the Giralda tower walls, balustrades and railings fell from the Cathedral roof and stones started to loosen and break. The earthquake was thought to be around 8.5-9 magnitude. The crowd fled outside and came here, into the plaza, where they stoically continued mass. Little damage was done to the cathedral and overall, the city escaped relatively unscathed. The people attributed this miraculous luck to divine protection. They had escaped damage and death, thanks to the protection of the Virgin Mary. Out of gratitude (and possibly as future insurance), they built the tall, white, marble monument dedicated to Mary that you can see out the front of the Archivio de Indias. Taking no chances, they took the chance to build a second statue of Mary, the Immaculate Conception when the square was re-modelled in 1918. This monument is the tallest one standing in the centre of the plaza. Other features of the plaza are: • the south entry to the Cathedral • the Convent of the Encarnación • the Almohad wall of the Alcazar & entry into the Alcazar • Archivo General de Indias

I was lucky enough to visit in July 2020 when Seville had very few tourists due to the C19 pandemic. Apparently the square is normally very crowded due to it's location. It's a small, but nice square and the main reasons to visit are to have a photo opportunity of the Monument to the Immaculate Conception, in its centre, and to visit the Cathedral and the Alcazar,, which border it, and to see the Torre Giralda, which is just around the corner and the back of the cathedral.

Plaza del Triunfo is a beautiful public space. It is surrounded by a lot of history and that is seen in buildings like the Cathedral, the Real Alcazar, the Convent of the Encarnación and the lovely atmosphere of the square itself. Its name goes back to the 18th century and is connected to the Portuguese capital Lisbon. When a devastating and powerful earthquake hit Lisbon, it was felt in Seville. At that very moment, according to tradition, worshippers were inside the Cathedral, during Mass. Undeterred, they went outside on to the square, where the Mass continued. Seville, as it turned out escaped the earthquake almost unscathed. In return they named the Square in remembrance of this event. A fitting monument to the Virgin Mary was also built there.

We walked through this plaza over and over as we visited the major sights of Seville. We especially loved seeing the carriages waiting to take people on rides through the area.
