Plaza Del Socorro has played a huge part in Andalusian political history. Now it is a beautiful peaceful plaza. Once a place where the Andalusians rose up and tried to fight for their autonomy. There is a fountain with a statue of Hercules, the pillars of Hercules and two lions in the middle of this plaza depicting the Andalusian flag. In 1918 Blas Infante known as the father of Andalucia unveiled the flag and symbol of Andalucia, it was unveiled from the balcony directly behind the statue in the plaza. This is still the symbol of Andalucia today and statue represents this in his honour. Five years earlier Blas Infante made one of his famous speeches from this plaza saying "the moment has come for the privileged to die". Twenty years later he was rounded up in Seville when Franco captured the city and was shot dead. He is still held with high regard in Andalucia and a lot of towns have a plaza or avenue in his honour. Plaza Del Socorro is a beautiful plaza and well worth a visit.
