    Unique culture, beauty, history and a lot of fun!!!
    Setas is a very popular place in the old town of Seville with many delicious cafes and restaurants. In the evenings, magic begins there - this grandiose mushroom begins to be illuminated with different lights to the beat of the sounding music. You can climb on it and enjoy many free performances by artists of various genres. In addition, there is a real flamenco center very close, do not miss this chance! Setas is cool, beautiful and fun!👍🤩❤️

    Amazing structure - visit at night the light show
    The largest wooden structure in the world, our receptionist told us that this wasn't popular when it was first built but is now a loved meeting spot for locals. as it is surrounded by cafes and restaurants. We decided to visit at night when it is illuminated in changing colours with ambient music - it is quite the experience to walk along the walkways and see the city lit up all around you. We also visited the are during the day but didn't go up it. It is more expensive to visit at night but I think it's worth the cost. Definitely something unique and not to be missed during your stay.

    Spectacular lightshow at night and great views during day - 2 visits included
    Loved this structure and experience. The ticket allows a second return visit within 48 hours, so you can visit during day and return for the Aurora, the nighttime lightshow. I loved both experiences. There are great views all over Seville from the top and the walkway snakes up and down around the structure, which apparently is the largest wooden structure in the world (although it has a steel frame). It wasn't busy during the day when we went. There is also a film about Seville to watch before or after the walk, quite dramatic in places. Although it is high, the walkways are placed on the structure with no dramatic drops when you look over. My husband isn't a fan of heights but managed this ok. The view from underneath the structure is equally impressive. I would recommend going up the stairways/escalators to the area immediately underneath. It is lovely and shady with lots of seating which the locals obviously love, plus different angles of the amazing structure. We then returned in the evening for the sunset and light show and that was very popular. The sunset wasn't the most spectacular but the light show was, with all the coloured lights changing and lighting up different angles of the wood. They take a photo of your party near the start which you can buy for 10 euros at the end. Again we went to the area underneath it afterwards as that's just as spectacular and had a nice buzz about it. Underneath the whole structure is a market and a museum with the remains of a Roman town. This is not included but if you have tickets to the Alcazar you can get in free. It was a nice place to escape the heat. There are lots of restaurants/bars all around this area and the main shopping area is also very close.
    Hello, thank you very much for your visit. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the views from the lookout twice, once in the morning and once at night with the light show. We hope to see you again on another occasion, best regards!

    WOW!
    For amazing views of Seville, visit the Metropol Parasol observation deck and walkway. Built from 2005 to 2011, Las Setas (The Mushrooms) is so called because the shape resembles six large mushrooms. There are skywalks circling around gastro bars and the first floor has an open air plaza where entertainers often perform. There is a market on the ground floor with an Antiquarium museum in the basement area with an archaeological site showing ruins of ancient Roman, Visigoth and Moorish eras. A fascinating place, offering something for all ages - definitely worth a visit.
    Hi, Thank you very much for the review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the atmosphere and the monument. Thank you for recommending the visit. best regards!

    Disappointing this time around
    Third time in Seville and decided to visit Las Setas to fill a morning. It was worth the visit. Great views from the top. However, it would still be quite far down my to do list. Roman ruins underneath were disappointing compared to previous visit. There were leaks from pipes with buckets scattered around and information dispels were not working.
    Good afternoon, Thank you very much for your visit. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the view from the 360º viewpoint. We hope to see you again on another occasion, best regards!

    Something different
    €15 per adult. Ticket gives you 48hour access, so can come back at different times. Cool to see something other than churches, however rather expensive. Worth coming back in evening for night show and seeing it from the top. Light show is underwhelming from the bottom

    Great 369degree view of Seville
    Went at 8 pm, fabulous views of the city. Didn't really need to book. Lovely views all around the city with the evening sun just setting. Short film to introduce Seville to view before or afterwards. Well worth the visit. Incredible construction and well explained on staircase down as you leave.
    Hello, thank you very much for your visit. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the amazing sunset views and the Feeling experience. We look forward to seeing you again another time, best regards!

    Colorful and unique experience with good city views.
    We came a bit before sunset which gives a good view of the city before dark, and the sunset view is nice. Enjoyed the 180 degree Omni screen with movie of city highlights. After the sun goes down one can see various churches and sites lit up and the changing colors of the structure are beautiful.

    A must- see
    So pleased we visited this. We went once during the day and again for the illuminations at night. Two very different experiences and I suggest you do them both. In the day there was no queue but at night we queued (even though we had our ticket- make sure you don’t queue in the one for tickets if you’re on your return visit). The ticket is valid for 2 days and you get one day and one night visit. You don’t appreciate the light show from below. You have to see it from the top. We found the audio visual film about Seville wonderful. It’s included in the ticket so don’t miss it.
    Hello, thank you very much for your visit. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed both visits and that you liked them both, especially the light show from the 360º viewpoint. We hope to see you again soon, best regards!

    A lovely experience at sunset.
    This was a lovely thing to do & I recommend you book a slot just before sunset so you can see Seville before & after. The film is also very good. However, I would NOT recommend buying their photo, as we were given a code for a digital copy that didn’t work & despite several attempts to resolve it, they were quite disinterested in helping us. An expensive error on our part.

An unexpected pleasure. A clever modern sculpture in this ancient city. Great views over Seville and easy access via the lift to the viewing platform. We went during the day and it was very quiet.

Such a shame those that work there are rude and spoiling the enjoyment of this beautiful place! Told NO toilets when the map clearly states there are, told emphatically NO to a coffee shop at the top, rude staff on entry and when I asked for help with the coffee machine (as there was no cafe as had been advertised!)View from the bottom is better!

Great views at sunset. The architecture was amazing. “Light show” was average. Showing the tickets at the turnstiles was the biggest shambles I’ve ever seen, not sure if they were short staffed but there was about 4 different queues. No one knew what was going on, but was pretty decent once we finally got through, after a 30 minute wait.

We looked into this while on our holiday in Seville and noticed that the tickets around sunset were becoming unavailable that day, so we pre-booked tickets online for the next day and for the time slot which was an hour before sunset. We arrived a little earlier than our slot and took the elevator to the top after showing our tickets. First thing we did was wait for the cinema room to be available which is every 15 minutes and watched the visually impressive short film. We then slowly made our way along the walkways seeing the best views of the city until we got to the upper platform and then hung around until the sunset makes it even more special. You really do see the city in a different light! Once it goes dark the light show starts which is beautiful. It does get crowded but if you plan ahead you can make sure to get the most out of a perfect night.

Total chaos. Order tickets online and then you just get in line. Behind hundreds of others. Waited more than an hour in line. Waste of time and money.

The views are very decent but thats all - many other reviews go way overboard....the best part by a mile is the brief but top class filmshow. Having thought - I should have given 4 stars for this part alone. Forget going back at night for the lightshow as its a total meh/snoozefest

Great experience and you can go back at 7.30 in the evening and visit it again for the light show.
Great views of Seville and the largest wooden structure in the world.

We paid 15 euro each to visit Parasol Metropol (old name). You get great views of the city walking along the structure then an amazing 189 degree in the round immersion film about Seville’s culture. As you walk down to exit, you can read about how it was made. Small gift shop as well.

One of the worst scams of Sevilla. You get tricked to buy a ticket for 15€ at a given time and when you meet up for the time it is an hour queue. I would not recommend anyone doing this as this is both a waste of time and does not provide a very good view. And it seems like they know it is a scam as it was a queue to complain.
