  • A surreal experience. Looks great but when you are on the mushrooms ( and it’s difficult to find the entrance) it’s rather underwhelming. Seville looks better from the ground! The ‘immersive...

  • An interesting architectural project located in the middle of busy part of the city. Something worth seeing if you are in the area but not worth it if you have limited time in the city.

  • Well worth the walk here from our hotel 15 minutes away. Panoramic views available everywhere and rarely will the weather spoil it. A glorious day and nice to soak up the skylines of such an impressive city. Really central too and plenty to do in the location. Lots of independent shops and shopping options in the immediate area to help pass a morning or afternoon.
  • A very interesting and some say controversial piece of architecture. Great views back across the city. Worth a visit...it was 3 euros to go up on top. 5 stars for the view. Strange it has small steps on the sloping roof path considering there's only 17 steps to get to top of the Cathedral. ....surely a non slip material on here would have been more appropriate.
  • Very nice emplacement where you can admire Seville's skyline. Beautiful views. I recommend to visit at evening so you can see the sunset and then the city lights.
  • Awn inspiring public art that one can and wishes to climb, walk and jump on. Blocks long, stories high. Public market in the lower level, children's play area on the second level and an undulating walkway on the top level providing dramatic views of Sevilla. Visit at night when it is lit and eerie looking. Very neat. Interactive architecture.
  • It's not really worth going up this structure unless you have absolutely exhausted things to do in Sevilla. The view from the top isn't any special. Also despite the claim to be the world's largest wooden structure, I see metal and concrete used everywhere. It's only €3 to go up but I still wouldn't recommend going up it, if you have other things planned. I don't get why others have high opinion of this attraction - may be I have different expectations as I am a keen photographer.
