Description:

Spain dedicated this plaza in 1976 to the City of New Orleans in remembrance of their common historical past and as a pledge of fraternity in the future. At its focal point is a fountain surrounded by the seals of the provinces of Spain.

Today, Spanish Plaza, located next to the Riverwalk Marketplace near the World Trade Center, is a common meeting place for those frequenting the attractions of the downtown area.

Originally known as Eads Plaza, the square was first intended to memorialize the engineer who improved the navigability of the mouth of the Mississippi River.

Located near many of New Orleans' greatest attractions, such as the Aquarium of the Americas, Riverwalk Shopping Center, and the Harrah's casino; Spanish Plaza is a convenient meeting and resting spot before hitting the next item on your to-do list.
