Photograph of the Plaza San Francisco in the heart of the city of Seville. In the foreground is the square itself where a number of horse drawn carriages stand. On the left stands a five storey apartment block with vertical windows. On the right is a four story building featuring an arched arcade at ground level and a sign on the first floor that reads 'Panos de Tarrasi'. A fountain stands in front of the building. In the background stands Seville Cathedral's bell tower, known as La Giralda which stands at over 340 feet high.
