Metropol Parasol
Seville, Spain and Canary Islands

Seville, Spain and Canary Islands


Opened in 2011 after six years construction to cover an ugly car park. It is locally known as ‘La Setas’, or ‘the mushrooms’ because it’s undulating wooden honeycombed roof is held up by five giant mushroom-like pillars.

It provides shade, performance areas, and a market. It also features an exhibit of Roman ruins discovered during the construction – not something likely to happen in Edmonton!

For 3 Euros you can go up the walkway, and your ticket is also worth a drink at the top. What a deal!
