Well worth heading to the basement (downstairs) to get a lift to the 2nd floor - costs 3 Euro. From there you have great views of Seville and a pretty interesting walkway. Kids would enjoy this too.

A wonderful very large structure of modern architecture. Its the largest wooden structure in the world. Take the lift to near the top and take a leisurely walk all around the top. The views are amazing. There is a bar there too if you fancy...More

You can see almost all the city above the roof tops from here. The walkway is very gentle with information points en route. Take a camera for seriously panoramic views.

It's not ugly, I rather like its form in fact. But don't bother visiting this artwork in the middle of the city, since there is nothing to see or do (not even in the shopping & exhibition area underneath the plaza).

Most visitors to the Parasol snap a few photos of the exterior and pay 3E to access the footpath that snakes around the roof of the structure. However, do take time and spend the modest 2.1E to explore the excellently preserved ruins that lie beneath...More

A spectacular structure, but I was a little disappointed to see that it wasn't very well lit up in the evening. If you want to get one of those great night photos, you probably need a tripod.

An amazing example of modern architecture fitting into an old city. It also serves as a useful landmark when you are exploring. There is a large market underneath and some of the stalls, especially the vegetables matched those in rural France.

This is a structure with interesting modern architecture but as some others have stated it is not a "must-see" sight. If you are an architecture-enthusiast, you would probably get more out of this than I did. It seems a popular gathering place and definitely makes...More
