I can not share the enthusiasm of other travelers' reviews of "The Mushroom." There are much better views over the city (e.g., the Cathedral's tower). The surrounding area has little else to see. I would put my admission towards a class of Rioja.

But I think it looks pretty cool and I really like to get up there and have a view above the whole city. Better avoid it when you're scared of hights, as the construction allows you... More

This building seems out of place and without much purpose. You can see it very quickly, probably 30 to 45 minutes. There are some decent views from the top, but they are not nearly as good as from the cathedral tower.

After walking around the Alcazar we were too tired to look at this too, so thought we would do a drive by. Be warned. Be very careful if you trust a SatNav to get you there. We ended up driving down a pedestrianised street having got into some very tight lanes with no obvious way out. We got up to... More

Local people in Sevilla, following the special sense of humour that people from Sevilla have, call this structure "Las setas" (The mushrooms). The name given by locals is not only funny, it is also critic with this building that it is not probaly set up in the best point in the city. That´s the opinion of many people living there;... More

Impressive structure halfway between Alcazar and Alameda de Hercules, it offers a great views from Seville. Tickets cost €3 and include a free drink in one of the bars downstairs by the road. There is a restaurant upstairs and a footpath running o the top of the building.

Is this a city development that didn't quite work? It is probably good for providing shade and houses an indoor market but not sure about it. Worth seeing of course, and a 4 euro charge takes you up in a lift so you can walk around on the top and see the city skyline.

Really enjoyed this. I think some locals get snobby about the "modern monstrosity" but I really liked it. Great views across all of Seville, Funky disco lights lift gets you to top so NO climbing.

We stumbled upon this by accident our first day in Seville, and thought it was pretty amazing. It wasn't until we found out more about it in the guide books that we realized that it was an important piece of sculpture / architecture, and then went back for a more close up look. If you're a fan of public art,... More

This is an incredible place in the middle of a historic center. Worth a visit and it's a stop for the open top bus. I had no idea that you could walk the loop. Again aurrounded by the historic sights. We found a little craft market and of course some lovely bars.
