I only went here to meet up with a walking tour. Otherwise, i would not have gone out of my way. It's interesting, but not too much around there. Lots of kids enjoyed sliding down the concrete slides.

This is a Marmite thing, love it or hate it. I loved it, such a contrast to the rest of the city. Interesting to look at from the ground but for a different view of the city go up to the viewing area. You can walk all around and see Seville from different angles. 3 euros to go up, but... More

The structure and shape are amazing. It's difficult to fully understand the shape until you stand on the roof. It also amazing the location and the improvement and impact on the area.

Do take time to see this unique construction. It provides very welcome shade to an otherwise unremarkable square. On the upper level it offers you a very good view over the city.

I was disappointed that there was no information on display in English. There was no information about why the structure is there or what you can see from the roof. We were offered a free drink and a free postcard for our entry fee of 3 euros. Lots of very excited children around.

Superb structure in the middle of a square, definitely worth a visit. Counter-intuitively you have to go down the escalator/ramp to the basement to get the lift up. €3 which includes a free drink. One of the best ways to see the Seville skyline and much less busy than the Cathedral Tower.

This has to be one of the best value touristy things to do in Seville. For EUR3 you get into one of the most intriguing pieces of public architecture in Europe - and a drink! Don't be put off by the queue, it moves very quickly. Once a carpark and underused public square, it's apparently the largest wooden structure of... More

We walked to see this wooden structure but couldn't really see the point of it. Walked up the stairs to get closer but there was just a children's play park there. Huh?

Not a "fan" of huge "modern art concrete buldings", but since it was near where we stayed, we decided to visit it. Despite the fact that, according to locals, it "revitalized" this area, my opinion is that this is completly out of the ancient Sevillan architecture context where is located. It was built in the context of Expo 92, and... More
