Go see it if you are into art architecture or engineering. There are shops and a cafe under it. I couldn't find an unlocked door to the upper walkway.

Couldn't work out how to get up there to start with but you go down to take the lift up to this fantastic modern walkway with great views and even a free drink at the top included in the cost of your ticket!

I had seen this on TV before visiting Seville so it was on my list of places to see. Luckily it was a minutes walk from our hotel so easy to find for us. I loved the sculptural use of space and found the building very beautiful - in fact breath-taking. Underneath is an interesting exhibit of the Roman ruins... More

This is the best attraction deal going in Spain. I personally find the structure unappealing, but the views of Seville are outstanding and worth the price of admission. For 3 euros you get admission and a free drink. Definitely worth it. I recommend going near sunset and enjoying the view.

great way to see the city sky line. Interesting building and worth the three euros and as a bonus you get a drink included in the price. The lift on the way up is in itself quiet cool and a great place to take a selfie :-) The entrance is down stairs from pavement level and is easy to miss... More

Looking at the the stylish architecture of Metropol Parasol you would consider it as an opera house or some sort of museum. Half-correct ! There is a gallery in the basement showing Roman town ruins but it also houses a wet-market and government office. Moreover, it is amazing to enjoy the curves of Parasol blending with the sky.

Mushroom shapes in the middle of one of the oldest parts of the city is pretty weird. You'll find Sevillan@s either love it or hate it depending on their taste - they'll also refer to it as Las Setas. However, 3 euro to go to the top and get a drink and see the beautiful city from above? Excellent! And... More

Metropol Parasol is a giant observation deck that is described as "Giant Mushroom" it offers an amazing view of Seville. Bit of a hike to get to the top though on a hot day. The best part was the Roman town ruins dating back to thousands of years ago. Air conditioned for people like my son who hates the hot... More

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.
