Outdoor strolls can bring many surprises and one of these is the 'Metropol Parasol', which is a gigantic, 26 metre-tall wooden structure, located in the square named 'plaza de la Encarnacíon'. Everyone knows it as 'Setas de la Encarnación' (Mushrooms of Incarnation) because of its mushroom-like shape. The architect, Berliner Jürgen Mayer, was the creator of this modern work which has changed Seville's centre since its inauguration in 2011. It's possible to go up this viewpoint to appreciate the spectacular views of Seville's old town and to admire the contrast between the old architecture and that of the Metropol Parasol itself. Access to the walkway which crosses the top part of the Metropol Parasol costs 1.40 € (that's if you weren't born in Seville or if you're not a resident). The viewpoint is open from 10.30am to midnight during the week, and it's open until 1am on weekends.
