Metropol Parasol is an architectural wonder. Pictures don't do it justice, you really need to see it in person. I loved the walking path at the top. You get great views of the city from every angle. The "free" drink at the bar is a nice touch and the bartender was very friendly.

Quite an 'interesting' structure which offers a unique, impressive panorama of the city. I had some mixed feelings when I saw the pictures, but once on the 'rooftop' I took in the view with pleasure.

I heard it's the only modern building in the old city and it is a must visit. I'd seen it on pictures but it still wowed me. The view is superb above and u may oversee all the city. Not so many people there also made me happy. The entrance is underground in the middle of the parasol.

The price is fantastic, as it includes a drink when you reach the top. The view of the city from here is just breathtaking. There is a quaint little bar that serves light food and drinks to people, and then you can go and watch the sunset from the walkway. There was plenty of space for everyone to view the... More

From where we came into the square entrance was difficult to find but worth it. Great views for three euro which include a free drink from cafe. Great value for money.

This was just around the corner from,our hotel. Unusual,out of place if you ask me?. But, children were skate boarding and,plating on the open area. You can go to the top for a small fee where you can view Seville. Surrounded by cafe's restaurants and,to be honest it drew us back for a spooky reason?. We were happy to chill... More
