This is an incredible engineering and artistic sculpture. It is a shame it is not better supported by the city or local businesses. The structure is amazing ans should be visited. Shame on Seville for turning it's back on this wonderful piece. Don't let that stop you from visiting

I absolutely loved this avant-garde structure. It is an engineering marvel that has to be seen to be believed - incredible that it is made from wood! It only costs 3€ for a ticket and you can stroll around the paths on the top for as long as you like. You get a ticket which you can exchange for a... More

The parasol provides really good views over Seville but possibly not as good as from la giralda. At 3 euros per person, the admission price is very reasonable as it also includes a free postcard and a drink from the cafe at the bottom of the structure which was an excellent surprise. The structure is interesting but purists might argue... More

A very interesting and different structure. Though the area around it is scruffy with quite a bit of litter. It is worth walking under it and visiting it at night when it is all lit up. You can go up inside it to a viewing gallery, which we didn't do.

I have been here on a visit both day and night, well worth a visit both occasions. It does not take too long to walk around but the view is absolutely amazing and you see the "whole Seville" from the top of the building. When you come to Sevilla, this is a must!

Even though I had already been up to the Giralda, I still enjoyed the view of Las Setas. It was also an easier alternative to getting a view of Sevilla for some in our party who could not handle the climb up the Giralda. We happened to be on top of Las Setas at noon, and highly recommend it! So... More

My family stayed in Sevilla and wondered what this structure was ... then we noticed people walking around on the top. Since we had been up in the Giraldi Tower at the Cathedral during the day, we decided to go to the top of the Metropol Parasol at night. Great views of the city lit up at night! Only 3... More

Odd but interesting structure. Great views. Appears to be made of wood......Spent a happy hour wandering about but couldn't find where to claim our free drink!

This is an amazing place, uniquely placed to give you a sense of freedom in the heart of the city. You get great camera shots and fantastic views of the city scape, gentle for kids and elderly as a lift is provided, together with ramps for pushchairs. I would have given this an "excellent" rating however they promised me a... More

Futuristic, very impressive building. Great panoramic view of Seville and surrounding from the top. Cheap entrance. Great piece of engineering and some really good views from the top. However found a little boring - it is all about panoramic view. I'm not sure the views are any better than say from the Giralda. The good side was that we were... More
