The Metropol Parasol (Spanish: Las Setas de Sevilla) is an impressive waffle-type crisscrossed wooden structure located in the Plaza de la Encarnación in Seville, the capital and largest city of Andalusia, southern Spain.
Five interesting facts about the structure:
- It was built between 2005 and 2011 by the German architect Jürgen Mayer.
- The wood used was birch, imported from Finland, because of its excellent quality.
- Organized in four levels, it consists of six linked parasols.
- At the top, there is a 250 m (820 ft) walkway with 360-degree views of Seville.
- It is the largest wooden structure in the world (dimensions of 150 m/490 ft long, 70 m/230 ft wide and an approximate height of 26m/85 ft).
