I quite love the design of the architecture, which is in the shape of honeycombed mushroom. It is a good balance and combination of modern art and old city.

Our hotel receptionist told us not to miss this site and recommended we take the elevator to the top to see an overview of Sevilla. This attraction costs a worthwhile 3 Euros and comes with a complimentary drink. What an amazing structure (it looks like several interconnecting mushrooms) and it has an even more amazing view. There is a cat... More

The view is okayish but its the highest view point in the neighbourhood. Besides the free drink for 3 euro plus the sky walk makes it worth visit for 2-3 hours in the evening.

Love it or hate it . The "Magic Mushrooms" or "The Flying Waffles" whatever you call them it looks spectacular. The bars are over priced but viewed from the Plaza opposite especially at night with a nice spanish brandy it looks great. the Fanzone for the Basketball World Cup was also good .

The building itself is quite interesting and modern, but as for the view, not as stunning as I thought. The rooftops of Sevilla not that interesting. The bar at the top give it a miss. Poor service and average food. Best to visit one of the neighbouring tapas bars.

Visited this attraction at the end of March and after firstly struggling to find the entrance, we were extremely pleased with the views on offer and the structure itself. A feat of engineering to create this structure entirely out of wood, the walk around the top was spectacular! Not only this, but with your ticket to the top you received... More

This was really cool to see mainly because Seville has all of these really amazing old wordly structures, but then they surprise you with this modern mushroom-resembling one. They have a market inside of it and we spent a half hour looking around at all the stands. I have been to some nice markets in the states (in urban cities),... More

It's a very special structure. It looks really nice and there is nothing like it elsewhere. However I thing I read somewhere that you can actually get up to it to admire the view. I didn't see anything like it. The only thing that it's available is a tapas bar and an antiquary or however thay call it, both of... More
