'Setas de Sevilla' - Metropol Parasol

Standing in the Plaza de la Encarnación is Metropol Parasol, also known as the 'mushrooms of Seville' ('Setas de Sevilla'). This building, which opened in 2011, was designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer, who won a design competition to revitalise the square. It is the largest wooden construction in the world (150 x 70 meters and 26 meters in height). Mayer won the competition partly thanks to the way he integrated the remains of a Roman colony into his building. People originally wanted to build a parking lot here, but that idea was abandoned when these Roman remains were discovered.

Metropol Parasol & Mirador

The mushrooms of Metropol Parasol zare not only a wooden construction that covers the square, but on top of the parasols, there is a special walkway and a terrace with beautiful panorama ("El Mirador"). Metropol Parasol also offers an archaeological museum (Antiquarium, see below), shops, several bars and restaurants. A stroll across the Metropol Parasol is certainly worthwhile during your Seville city trip .
