This is an interesting piece of architecture but in all honesty not one I would really recommend to friends. If you happen to be in the area then take a look. Don't go out of your way. It is really not that much to look at.

There was almost no one here, but being underneath the parasol was amazing. If you wanna take good architecture shots, take them here, cos this place is awesome to look at. We had lunch around this area which was really good, but be wary of the flies if you choose to order whitebait/fish - they WILL swarm your plate. There... More

We visited the "Sete" on a rainy Sunday morning but the walk was pleasant and the vistas afforded over the city from the raised walkway were memorable 360 degrees. A little bit Gaudí a little bit Frank Gehry a little bit whimsical!

There may be some mixed reactions to these large modern structures, but I found them very interesting. They also provided a good viewpoint for pictures. Admission is 3 Euros but you can trade your ticket for a drink at the view point bar, so only 1.50. Entrance is down a ramp - almost missed it!

For 3euros you get entry and a glass of wine/beer/soft drink. Very unique experience, great city views and wonderful modern architecture. Recommended.

We had time to explore so we walked to this structure. It was very different and it took us awhile to figure out how to get in. But we found the ticket booth underneath that led to the elevator to the top. Nice views and a chance to walk around various stairways/paths up high.

People who live in Seville call this landmark La Setas which is Spanish for Musrooms. The six parasols in mushroom shape overshadows the plaza and give you a lot to photograph.

Known to be one of the world's arrest wooden structures. Looks huge and would be even more beautiful in evening when it's well lit. There's a coffee shop up there and has some seating place too. There's a small kids play area too.

Once we worked out that you had to go down into the basement to access the parasols we thoroughly enjoyed the aerial walkways on this quirky Spanish folly, and the excellent views. The reasonable admission charge included a free drink (the red wine was surprisingly good for a freebie) but the cafe bar misses out on much by way of... More
