Happy 25th anniversary, Seville Expo ’92

On this day 25 years ago Seville welcomed the world for Expo 1992. Happy anniversary!

The Andalusian capital will mark the occasion with a series of events. King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia will pay a visit to the city to give an official start to the festivities.

The two royals attended the original opening 25 years ago. 112 countries were represented at the event on the island of La Cartuja between April and October 1992. The national pavilions were supposed to be temporary, scheduled for demolition shortly after the event. However, most structures were never taken down. Today some of them are abandoned, while others accommodate tech and science companies.

Big City Little Monkey will mark the occasion with some pictures from the beautifully decaying site of Expo ’92.
