Architectural Building Landmark
The largest wooden structure in the world, Metropol Parasol stands 150 by 70 m (490 ft by 230 ft) over La Encarnación Square. Organized on four levels, the mushroom-like structure houses four different sites. View the Moorish and Roman remains on the lower level and the central market on the first level, for example. Panoramic terraces overlook the city on the second and third levels. This attraction is commonly known as the "Encarnación's mushrooms" due to its distinctive shape.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
