Metropol Parasol - Review
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.

Metropol Parasol, Seville Reviews
The monument is beautiful, very controversial but from my opinion it is a beautiful mix from the old and the new (because of the old building and the Roman ruins found). If it is beautiful from the ground, it is even more beautiful from top. The views of the city are amazing, specially at night! It costs 3€ to go up and you have a free beer! It's a win win.
This was only less than ten minutes from our accommodation, but we did not know about it. We stumbled across it and are glad we did. It is cheap to visit and gives good views of the city in all directions at various viewing points. There is a great cafe at the top and your entry tickets give a discount. Overall, well worth a visit.
Even though the structure can be seen from a distance it's not so easy to find the entrance I wasn't expecting it to say Aquarium! Go down not up. Only 3€ each & I think the views of Seville are just as spectacular as those from the cathedral tower. Very hot though very little shade on the walkway.
Nice views out over Seville. We went at sun set and it was lovely. You have to pay €3 to go up which is fine, they say you get a free drink but don't mention that it is from the bar underneath the mushrooms rather than the one up there. The bar up there was reasonable but tended by fairly rude staff.
Spain continues to push the boundaries with modern architecture, very often state or regional sponsored. "The Mushroom" as its affectionately known is a glorified sunscreen for the market below, however, a trip to the top walkway just before sunset will reveal a lot more about Seville that a few hours walking. It's a beautiful structure in its own way and will become part of the soul of this vibrant city.
