plaza de espana
The Planet Naboo by any other name. . .

When the Lucas movie team was looking for a place that reflected the 'Royal planet of Nabo,' they visited a number of sites around the world, but as soon as they saw the monumental architecture of the Plaza de Espana, they didn't have to look any further..

In 1929 Seville hosted the Spanish-American Exhibition. A number of buildings were built for the exhibition in the Maria Luisa Park. On the park's edge was built the current Plaza de Espana, which at the time showcased Spain's industry and technology exhibits. plaza de espana
If you check out the second "Star Wars" episode (Attack of the Clones), you can watch the young Anakin and Padmeyou walking over the above bridge and along the corridors of Plaza de Espana buildings.

The plaza is a massive half circle; the building runs continuously along the outside of the half circle while a large fountain is located in the center. One can easily spend several minutes here just walking around the courtyard.
