We went to the Foundacion to take part in an ebvent about building bridges between the three cultures (christian, jewish, muslim) which were active in Seville during the Moorish domination. Very interesting event, a combination of conference, poetry reading, and music. The Foundation is based in the former Moroccan pavilion at Expo 92, a very elegant and well appointed building. Only difficulty - it is difficult to find becaues it is not actially in Calle Max Planck, but across an ornamental carden from the Calle. The taxi that we called to go back had problems finding it too. Other than that, full marks!

As a resident of Seville, I am constantly on the lookout for different things to do in the city. The '92 Expo is still remnant in many sevillanos' recent memory, and while the complex surrounding the pavilion is overgrown and abandoned, the pristine building is a huge surprise. Apart from the archictecture and handiwork, carried out by artisans from Morocco, the history and foresight of the building is interesting.

Tours are guided from Foundation employees themselves and discuss the cultural significance of the building - one of the most popular during the Expo - as well as what the entity hopes to provide as the largest Arabic cultural museum in the Mediterranean.
Check out their new website - the Fundación hosts book clubs, movie screenings and language courses, too.

While it's not the Alcázar, the installations and library are worth a visit - and it's free!

Maybe because it was Sunday... Don't go there without organizing some tour beforehand. We did not meet a single human being.

Its a really nice guided tour about the 93 expo's Morocco pavilion and the foundation that is now based there. The place is beautiful and the guides are very nice. AND ITS FREE!!!
After the basic tour our guide offered to show us their library that is very nice as well.
