City Hall

From the times of the Reconquering of the city, the City Hall of Seville was located beside the Cathedral. It was called Corral del Olmo.

They decided to move the City Hall and build a new one in the 6th century, after the Discovery of America.

They chose to build it in the San Francisco Square and the construction was the responsability of the architect Diego de Riaño. Made in 1527 with a renaissance style, known in Spain as Plateresco.

It was continued in the 19th century. The façade of the San Francisco Square is unfinished due to the architect's death and the lack of detailed plans concerning the decoration.
