Jesus Sanchez Gonzalez (Zu Sanchez)

New icon for Seville

Excellent

This newly opened building leaves no one indifferent. Beyond absurd political disputes, it’s a place unlike anything elsewhere.

To me, a fan of photography, it is a place full of artistic possibilities. I get the idea that Parisians though of something similar when Eiffel sculpted his most famous work in old Paris.

Little by little, this enclave will acquire fame and everyone will want to see it when visiting my hometown of Seville.

Metropol Parasol

Excellent

A new, modern, debated and innovative building rises 26 meters above the rooftops of the historic centre of Seville, with a future many foresee as the new symbol of the city. Where visitors can not only take a photo before such an impressive building, but also walk along its "Skywalk" that crosses the highest part of the popular "mushrooms" and from where we will enjoy a new view of the city.

The mushrooms, as almost everyone now knows them, were actually inspired by a ficus in a square near the Plaza de la Encarnación (Cristo de Burgos) and in the vaults of the cathedral of Seville.

For its construction tons of wood have been used, thus becoming, one of the largest wooden buildings in the world, although its structure is concrete.

The mushrooms of the incarnation

Great

The Metropol Parasol, also popularly known as las setas de la encarnación (the mushroom of the incarnation), is the work of Berlin architect Jürgen Mayer.

It is a four-level design, Housing in its underground part the Antiquarium (an Archaeological Museum). Also, at street level, a produce market and shopping area.

Around the Plaza Mayor six umbrellas are located that give name to the project. I love this wooden structure, unique in the world, causing a huge contrast to the eyes of the traveller who comes only to see the nearby Church of the Saviour, the Faculty of Fine Arts and the Church of the Annunciation.
