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. But if its views, its undulating forms and the originality of the building do not seem like much to you, then on the ground floor you will find business premises and restaurants as well as the highlight of this place, "the Antiquarium" which is under the subsoil of "the mushrooms", housing Roman ruins and the Andalusia legacy of the city. They can be viewed from the same street through a glass floor or coming down the stairs of the Antiquarium and following a guided walk, which explains the discoveries made during the construction of this new Seville city symbol.
Seville is one of those cities you fall in love when you go... its climate, its people, its temperature, its gastronomy and its monuments a few of the many features that make this city a place to seduce.
Although for places to seduce, I think it is best to take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through the centre of the city. I recommend taking it from the beginning of calle Mateos Gago (in the Plaza de la Giralda) and from there, you are given a lap around the old town.
The friendly coachmen guided and told us stories about the places we passed. It is excellent from start to finish. So, now you know, if you visit Seville with your partner and want to surprise them, I recommend this romantic trip, in which you will have a good time whilst enjoying the beauty of the greatest historical centre in the world.
