Feliz miércoles, everyone! It’s finally hit mid-week (why is this week going by so slowly??) so it’s time for Where in Spain Wednesday. This week, it’s back to Sevilla for a look at my favorite view of the city.
I snapped this from the top of the fairly new sculpture in Sevilla – Las Setas (The Mushrooms). Officially known as the Metropol Parasol, it picked up its funny nickname because of its shroom-like undulating shape. That’s what’s peeping out at the lower left-hand side of the picture.
Apart from being a
weird artistic addition to the city, it’s also a great place to get views of Sevilla. Standing at the front, you can see the famous cathedral (that’s the rectangular tower in line with the tree in the center-left) plus a few other churches. And you can really see why Andalucía is famous for its white cities.
Opinions on the Setas are pretty divided, but I’m betting they’re more uniform on the expansive views you can get from the top of the sculpture. La Giralda has the most famous views, but I prefer being able to see the fancy cathedral from far away.
