Model of the main train station of the city of Sevilla. Built around the time of the universal Exhibition in Sevilla of the year 1992 to receive the passengers of the new AVE ( high speed) train line from Madrid, and more recently it also receive other AVE trains from other cities like Malaga and Barcelona. It also serves as mayor train station for local connections.
It was projected by the renowned architectural local firm Cruz y Ortiz arquitectos ( Antonio Cruz y Antonio Ortiz).The use of the red brick in many of his facades pay an homage tothe presence of this material in many other monuments of the city like the Plaza de España and the architecture of other famous local architect of the twenty century, Anibal Gonzalez. But the building is not a mere continuity with the historical heritage and his modern and rationalistic profile make him one of the best examples of the contemporary Spanish architecture, specially in the field of public and transportation buildings.
