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 - Write a Review
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)
Beautiful public sculpture, with panoramic views over the city of Seville. The 3 euro charge is well worth it to see the views from the observation deck, and to walk around the top levels of the structure. We visited at night, which meant that various monuments, including the Seville cathedral, were lit up and clearly visible. The top level deck also contains a restaurant which serves drinks. And the lowest level houses a museum which depicts the ancient history of the place. Definitely worth a visit!
This is a nice open public area. Great place to meet and hang out. However, it’s 3€ to go up to the view deck. Also, there is a small area under the square that has the archeological finds which are with a visit. The cost is 2.10€ to visit the remains.
It is interesting how this ingenious contemporary wooden structure gradually unfolds as you approach it through the narrow alley from the south. Quite a creative design that overwhelms the space below. The slanting bench-like landscape elements around the trees in the space itself are not comfortable though.
