  • Be fun to see. Distinctive architecture. From the basement, you can also go up. There is a path about this parasol.

  • Superb this modernity where one can enjoy Seville 3 euros entry with a drink to drink top view

  • The metropol parasol became a landmark that does not solocaratterizza the neighbourhood in which it is placed, but identifies the entire city of Seville. This is a brise-soleil on a wide piazza: guarantees coolness on hot days and hosts listings inside. Scenic walk to the share of the roofs of the houses where you can embrace all the city's skyline and sunset.

  • 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!
