Moroccan Pavilion

Moroccan Pavilion

Seville, Spain

Seville, capital of the world in 1992

A veritable palace, the Moroccan Pavilion is constructed from reinforced concrete and clad in decorations taken from Moroccan craftsmanship: mashrabiya, columns covered with azulejo tiles, etc. Outside the building there are fountains and waterfalls.

Built by BYMARO for the Universal Exposition in Seville in 1992, the Moroccan Pavilion was built on 4 levels.

Its traditional Moroccan architecture was decorated with sculpted marble porticos, fountains and cascades of light.

The complex is made up of exhibition rooms, a restaurant, a 230-seat projection room under Andalusian gardens communicating with the pavilion's basement, a terrace covered by a sliding 'Koubba'. A little gem enabling Moroccan culture to show itself off, to the delight of its visitors.

A magical place

In addition to its architecture and its decoration, in the purest style of Moroccan tradition, the pavilion houses Roman bronzes from the ancient city of Volubilis.
