Bizarre concrete structure over plaza - you can pay to go up in a lift to a viewing platform - be sure to go underground and see the Roman remains worth seeing

I admit I never entered the attraction itself; but from the outside the monument was very impressive, especially in good light. Its combination of curves, angles, shadows, and textures almost guarantee a great photo every time.

The Metropolitan Parasol nicknamed by the locals as the Mushroom and is a wooden structure built controversially in the city centre. The views from the walkways are amazing especially at sunset.

This attraction is best seen on the ground; however for an entrance fee of 3 Euros and you receive a free beer, wine or soda ... it's worth the short visit to relax and enjoy a beautiful view of the city while sipping your beverage of choice.

This is a fun way to see the city from above and we really enjoyed it. Stunning value for money including a drink in the already value for money price - highly recommend.

We were there in the evening arround 7 pm, got dark during the half time visit and city was nicely illuminated, great athmosphere, possible to buy some drinks on top in a coffee but you lose part of the charm spending time in qeue and then at table, just go back and forth and look at impressive buildings, roof terraces,...

It wasn't my favourite thing in seville but it's there, don't be sad if you missed it. I think it's nice if you have time to go up and see seville from above.

This structure takes up a whole city block and is made up of wooden sections. Entry is three euros and also covers a free drink and postcard. There is a café at the top and walkways all round the perimeter, the views from here are spectacular, even on a dull rainy day, you can spend a good hour or two... More

Once you find the inconspicuous entrance, it's a short elevator ride to the 'mushroom' structure. Once at the top, you get some great views from Old Town in all directions. Some of the viewfinders were out of order, but the views were plenty good enough without them. Don't forget to stop by the dining area to pick up your free... More

This is a beautiful structure in Plaza de la Encarnation. There is a museum at the bottom. There is a market as well. The big money shot is when you climb up to get unique views to the city. Don't miss it. Gracias
