This is one is a monstrosity. Just a short walk away from the the old city area it mushrooms up upsetting the charm of its monuments and streets. It's a technical marvel for sure, but one that simply does not fit in. Access is from the basement by the Antiquities Museum. One can on the walkway and get a bird's... More

I did think that it was a little too contemporary for Sevillas but I love the market they have inside. It's like a food heaven. All the glorious looking food is there. Probably not relevant to non-foodies but it's still worth a visit. Good place to grab a breakfast at one of the restaurants too if you stay in a... More

Interesting Roman archaeological relics with this odd invasive structure. Appears it has just been dumped here without any forethought to the surrounds. Take the elevator and get your free drink….

This giant invasive structure just does not fit in with this beautiful ancient city. It does stop you in your tracks and you look up and say "what is this and why is it here?".

The Metropol Parasol combines old roman ruins they have found where the parking should have been - now that is a museum you can visit. Museum is important, I wanted to go there on a Monday, not such a good idea. However, there is an elevator with which you can reach the top of Metropol Parasol and from there you... More

This was our second visit to Seville, and I loved the mushrooms on our first visit, but didn't know that you could walk around the top of it. So, this visit, it was a must do! The cost was only 3 euro and this is exchanged for a drink at the top - so it's free really. It's a completely... More

This rises from a traditional plaza as if it has landed from outer space. Don't know what the locals think of it, but it has a 'wow' factor as soon as you round a corner. Get the lift to the top, 2 or 3 euros, and the views, as well as a closer look at the structure - a bit... More

Worth a visit to get good views of the city - unusual architecture with some eating facilities available. Only a small charge but very reasonable for the attraction and whilst your there you should go to the archeological site near the entrance

We did not associate Seville with modern architecture, so the Metropol Parasol came as a great surprise. It provides a brilliant contrast with the narrow streets in which it is confined & is a wonderful public space. We wandered around both at night and during the day. The night experience is really fun as the lighting gives a different view... More

It was on the to do list but that still didn't stop the feeling of wonder and admiration of this bold and beautiful structure. Its the contrast between the narrow streets and history opening into the elegance of the square. Also a constructive use of space, with the roman ruins in the basement, the modern (but with traditional products) market... More
