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

A lovely little building-it is the oldest building in Seville in the neomudéjar style. It was formerly a guard house and is now a tourist information office and sits close to the Maria Luisa Park.

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.

The is the most fabulous and colourful building set on the corner of the main road in or out of the city. It is called the Queens Sewing Box, but originally was a garden lodge. Today it is a tourist office
