You’ll find Metropol Parasol at La Encarnación square in the old quarter of Seville. More commonly known as the Mushrooms, this huge wooden structure has raised much controversy mostly due to it’s cost and the delays in building and of course the modern appearance. Designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann, it has an approximate height of 26 metres and claims to be the largest wooden structure in the world.
I loved the design and think it adds a unique, contemporary twist to this old city. Of course locals may disagree! The panoramic view from up above is quite amazing and one of the best in the city. Enjoy a cold cerveza and olives at the restaurant on top and take in the sights.
