Plaza de América In the Plaza de América, Aníbal González combined a succession of beautiful ponds, fountains and gardens decorated in brick and embellished with iron, colourful tiles and water. Each of the pavilions which make up the Plaza recreate a particular historic period: in the background stands the Pabellon Real (Royal Pavilion) with gothic features, on its sides are the Archaeological Museum, with renaissance influences, and the Mudejar Pavilion. In the latter, completed in 1914, Aníbal González recreated the Mudejar style in an idealised manner. Constructed in brick, the colourful detailed drawings of its façade provide the building with an elegant monumentality which blends perfectly with the attractive elements of the Plaza. In 1972 this pavilion was converted into a museum which today displays an interesting ethnographic and anthropological collection from Andalusia. With the Archaeological Museum (1919), Aníbal González completed his personal journey through various historic styles in the Plaza de América. Since 1942, the huge neo-plateresque building has housed one of the best archaeological collections in Spain.
