  • If you're not big on architecture then the view from the top is still worth a visit. I was fascinated by the structure itself, it's quite unique; strange yet surprisingly enjoyable and even beautiful....  more »
  • Very large and impressive, its shape, its size and what has and all the best is their viewpoint the last floor where you can see a full overview of all Seville. You can not miss it

  • The site is nice to see, but can skip. Entering the viewpoint is very affordable €3. Enter a beverage and a postcard. View beautiful of the city, not the more dazzling. You have breakfast very well in the surrounding area.

  • Really impressed. Get to the top by lift from level -1, which you reach from going down steps from street level. Real bargain at €3, which includes a drink (beer, wine, soft drink) at top. Good views. Also, the guide books underplay the museum of Roman/Visigoth ruins under the structure (level -1). Really worth a visit and well presented. We also had a glass of wine and tapas in the market cafe, which we found very good and, like everything else, was very cheap.
  • This ultra modern display fits nicely into the landscape of Seville among all the moorish and Gothic structures. A beautiful all wood structure has terrific views of the entire city and a few restaurants on the top as well. Only costs a few Euros to take the elevator to the top. Well worth it.
  • Good museum. Artifacts exhibited nicely. The "Umbrellas" or the "Mushrooms" are quite nice too.
  • Sevilla is a century old city. This is a piece of modern art and architecture in the middle of the town. It's pretty but feels out of place and a bit forced. There are so many things to see in this city that this would seem... underwhelming.
  • A very interesting object with wonderful views. Entry costs a small fee, but it's worth it. The line was moving fast, we waited 15 min (although everyone had the same idea to watch the sunset from the rooftop). Check it out!
