Metropol Parasol - Sevilla

  1. The wings of the Metropol Parasol swing lightly over the old market square in Seville, Spain. Since 2011, the world's largest wooden construction has been protecting people from the Andalusian sun on the Plaza de la Encarnacion.

    The "mushrooms of Seville", as the inhabitants also call them, are the new landmark of the capital of Andalusia. In the medieval city centre, they offer an archaeology museum, a market hall, bars and restaurants as well as a sweeping view from the skywalk at a height of 26 metres.

    Architecture cannot be pigeonholed, it wants to be explored, discovered, conquered.

    The setting sun conjures up a play of light and shadow, beautiful to watch from the terrace with a drink.
