A TOUCH OF SPAIN
The Country Club Plaza
is a well known, upscale shopping center
in Kansas City, Missouri . . .
established in 1922,
and designed architecturally after Seville, Spain
by architect Edward Delk.
Every detail of this suburban shopping mall
is fashioned on the splendor of Seville . . .
with it's tiles, towers and fountains.
The Plaza is an enjoyable and untypical
shopping experience in Kansas City . . .
low-rise, with up-scale shops and restaurants,
very walkable in true Spanish character.
The Plaza contains more than 30 statues,
with murals, mosaics, tile and lighting reproductions
true to the flavor of Seville.
(And to think this shopping mall was conceived
and built almost 90 years ago!)
