Took a group to experience the wooden structure, and found the whole experience very interesting. The structure is located right in the middle of the city. It is a strange location for such a structure, but it actually works. I would certainly add it to your list of things to do and see in Sevilla. Be sure to pay the... More

Only 3 Euros to take a lift to the top of this amazing structure. It's not 100 years old but you get a fantastic view over Madrid. A free drink is included but we couldnt work where to redeem the offer.

This is a very unusual place. it seems to combine a public open space with a piece of modern architecture (is it an art installation or a building Who knows !) . You can walk around it and underneath it, or for a couple of €, you can take a lift up to walk all around the top of the... More

I was REALLY looking forward to seeing this, and if you have the time I would certainly swing by, but after seeing all the beauty of Seville, this is nothing more than an oddity. Yes, it's impressive, but I certainly wouldn't devote much more than one loop around it and then be on my way. It's not in the most... More

We wait for it's opening at 10:00 but find some people come back from the ticket office. What happens is not because it's closed but because the fee is 3€ instead of what the tourist map says 1.20€. This is too much for some Spanish tourists cause there are a few of them. We get in anyway to find out... More

Despite being such an large and unmissable viewing platform most travellers that we spoke to were completely unaware that this even existed. When we looked for it from various locations around the city, from Macarena (5 mins away) to the old biscuit factory now an art gallery across the river (15 mins away) it was infact completely invisible!! Quite bizarre!... More

This recent addition to Seville's skyline is quite remarkable. Fabricated in wood, it has provided the Encarnacion square with a magnificent covered area with shade during the long, hot summers, and enabled the historical market (immediately below and which was somewhat in decline) to recover in newly refurbished surroundings. To top it all, the building work uncovered a host of... More

Good value for money. Fine panoramic views over the city. Unprepossessing entrance, but worth persisting. Restaurants on viewing deck closed during our visit at 3pm.

We went to the Metropol Parasol first on our sightseeing tour of Sevilla. The view from the top was amazing and it gave us an overview and sense of direction to get around. It is only 3 euros entry and that does not include a drink as appears to have happened before. The entrance is down the escalator in front... More

The lift to the observation deck only costs €3 and gives a great panorama of Seville! The modern contrast of the parametric parasol and the classical old downtown Seville makes for a great photo opportunity. Love it or hate it, it certainly has people talking.
