  • This a must-see place. For just a few euros you can take the lift up to the top and wander around the amazing structure, taking photos of the city. Don't get too excited about the free drink with the ...  more »
  • For us, the Metropol parasol was one of the highlights of the visit in Seville. With contemporary architecture intimately familiar, we were still surprised that we saw something here, which was totally new to us: a huge wooden structure, only wood!, fleet-footed, vibrant, bold and completely unconventional. We went on the roof and walked the fenced road that offers great views over Seville. This trail leads up and down and so that winds around the architectural elements, we after some time as in a roller coaster feel, but a roller coaster for lovers of architecture.

  • Mushrooms is an ultramodern construction in the historic center of Seville, the principle clashes, then you think of as little singular. You can access the top and a ride, watching the beautiful historic centre with its most significant monuments. There is also a great restaurant

  • 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!
