I was a student for a year at La Escuela Superior de Ingenieros, based within one of the old pavilions for the Expo (92, I think). This part of the town down the north-west bank of the river seems to be largely abandoned but, as with la ESI, has some re-population following the exhibition. It is essentially a disused amusement park with a number of colourful pavilions, bridges, towers and structures that have been left, but they have a derelict, out-dated and unloved charm... not everyone's cup of tea, but they appealed to me. This project, which must have taken so much effort, has not really achieved its long-term target - I guess I felt sorry for them. The Expo pavilions from the 1929 exhibition (Parque Marie Luisa) are very popular landmarks, but the nineties versions won't last so well I suspect. They offset the traditional flamenco culture of the city centre (that can get a little too much sometimes) and make a nice hour-long walk (start at Plaza de Armas - up the east bank - over Puente Alamillo - through the Expo site - then return over Puente de la Barqueta). Or get the circular bus.
