One of the modern highlights of Sevilla is definitly the area of the Expo '92, which was held between 20 April and 12 October of that year. The expo theme "the age of discovery" was to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' first visit to the "new world".
Some of the expo pavilions are abandoned, others are housing companies. The nice thing is that a lot of the pavilions are still there, although in various conditions. In the mid day the area is filled with office workers and students, who eat their lunch between the buildings.
The best way to visit the Expo '92 is by bike as the terrain is quite huge and you can at least spend a whole day if you want to see most of the structures.
