Metropol Parasol, Seville

Hidden slightly away just out of the centre of Seville in the old quarter is Metropol Parasol. It is the world’s largest wooden structure and is nicknamed “Las Setas” or “The mushrooms” by locals because of its very distinctive shape. Designed by German Architect Jürgen Mayer, it was completed in April 2011. It’s unusual design and huge cost overspend caused much public controversy at the time, however personally i’ve got to say i think it was worth it because i genuinely thought it was stunning. You can pay to go up it and the views from the top are great. It’s particularly popular at sunset for obvious reasons.
