About Metropol Parasol, Seville

There are so many great highlights here that visitors might think this place was a tourist trap. It’s anything but.

Soaring above La Encarnacion square is what might the world’s largest wooden structure, a huge canopy of six mushroom shaped honeycombed latticeworks. There are four levels to the structure, from Level 0 to Level 3. A stylish restaurant and dreamlike viewpoint walkways dominate the top two levels. Below them, on the street Level 1, is a large canopy-shaded area used for public events. The interior of Level 1 is the Central Market.

But the real treasure lies appropriately underground, at level 0. The Antiquarium is an archaeological museum exhibiting Roman and Moorish artefacts from the 1st century BC to the 12th century AD. It’s a collection of streets, mosaic floors, wells, architectural columns, and houses with patios.

  • We love this place. Like so many things in Sevilla, it impressive, and a little bit bonkers! :) Value for money is excellent. 3 euro per person to get to the viewing platform which gives a magnificent view over the city. The platform snakes all around the top of the most of the structure. Someone described it as the slowest roller coaster ride in the world. Though you actually walk, it's a great description. With each ticket, you get a free drink in a local bar, and a free postcard from the gift shop. Bargain!

  • Amazing piece of modern architecture which at first is seems a bit odd for such an old part of Seville. You can either enjoy it for free from Ground level or pay a €3 charge to access the top. Be warned though that the entrance is not very well signposted, and also that the free drink promised on the ticket is really only a €1 discount off the full price. So unless you have deep pockets skip the drinks and enjoy the views which are spectacular. By the way once you have finished your visit you can currently exchange your used ticket for a free postcard in the gift shop. (Okay it’s only a postcard but it’s free after all)

  • Recommend going here just before sunset and watching it from the top. Very cheap to get up and is a much better view than the tower of the medieval church. You also get a drink voucher with your ticket so you can enjoy a nice cold beverage and watch the sun go down over beautiful Seville. The building itself is a feat of architecture and looks good from any angle.

  • Only 3 euros to go up - well worth it if you can find the entrance! When we went, the steps outside were fenced off so we thought it was closed but you actually have to go inside, down to level -1 to get the lift up to the top. The views from there are pretty impressive. Not the highest vantage point but above most of the buildings are lower so you can see quite far. Good at night so I've heard!

  • Great place to visit during the day, afternoon and night. There are a variety of bars/restaurants underneath, a museum and a market. You can also go to the top to get a full view of the whole city (Sevilla). I would recommend going here if you are visiting the center of Sevilla
