First day in Seville I saw this beautiful wooden structure, which is actually more than just that. As an architecture student, I really loves the idea of the German architect to create urban places at different levels. It is not easy to find the entrance. You have to go underneath the building to go up by elevator. It only cost... More

Nice views of the city however i dont think seville has the best skyline i have ever seen. It only cost 3€ and is worth a walk around if you are going past it. You get a free drink in the bar downstairs with your ticket 😊

We loved visiting the Metropol Parasol. Many locals have complaints it is too big or " breaks the atmosphere". However, it is an unusual and different experience in a city where many shops sell the same red and white flamenco dressed and many restaurants the same Tapas. After visiting the Cathedral and Alcazar and getting lost in the charming streets,... More

Much ado was made about the view which I thought was rather unspectacular. It wasn't really worth even the very marginal entrance fee being charged. On the flip side, the look of the building is good from afar. They do have a free drink included into the price of the entrance fee, which is worth its while on a hot... More

Great views of Sevilla and an amazing structure - the signage is not very good so if you find yourself up on the plaza level wondering how to go on top, don't fret! Go down to street level then go down the escalator to the basement to find the ticket office and elevator to the top. The restaurant at the... More

They say people love this or hate it - I LOVE it! The largest wooden structure in the world, this giant waffle-like structure hovers over Plaza de la Encarnacion. It's good to view from all the way around, and dont miss the opportunity to take the lift to the top (there is a small fee for this), where there are... More

Visiting Seville is just great. Walking through the nice roads of Seville and then of a sudden this futuristic lovely structure. This wooden structure is actually the roof of a public area and a very nice fresh food marked on the ground floor. Just lovely not much to talk about just go and visit and experience it! relax in one... More

The parasol is interesting but unless you are in the area, I would not recommend going out of your way to see it.
