It is a bit out of place in such a lovely old city but I did enjoy this feature. The walkways give a great view around the city and was most impressive at twilight as all the lights around the city were coming on.

Once you have had your fill of Seville's amazing historic buildings and architecture, this is something completely different! Modern and out of character this mushroom as the locals call it covers the fantastic indoor food market, main road and square. There is a walkway across the top of the Parasol with fantastic views over the city. A must day or... More

The price of this hidden gem of an attraction was brilliant and the views/juxtaposition of architecture makes for some wonderful photos. Recommend it goes on anyone's list

Not really quite sure what the point is. Yes its a huge sunshade... Some architect probably had fun with it. Makes a good picture but up close it seems a bit overdone. There's a few bars underneath that will serve an overpriced glass of wine or brandy when everything else is closing. Its worth a look in passing, but i... More

This square has a nice atmosphere. The New parasol is impressive. From the east side of the square you can enjoy the modern architecture of the square. By evening with the light effect. There is a museum with archeological findings. From the museum you can go to the top of the parasols. If you want a relaxing pause during your... More

Metropol Parasol is quite the architectural feat. My friend and I walked around and took pictures but we did not climb to the top. It's a nice structure to visit if you're passing, but I would not specially go out of my way to see it.

Great piece of architecture. It used to be a market place. The wooden structure is beautiful, especially for budding photographers. You can walk on top of it as well, which we didn't know. *face palm* but it was still a lovely monument to see.
