Photographer's Note

We are dwarfs hopsasa and under mushrooms have our booths. hopsasa.. (the Polish kindergarten song).
This is Metropol Parasol popularly known as Las Setas de la Encarnación (Incarnación's mushrooms).
This time I have been not prepared :( - I haven't known that it is possible to go to the view platform up there.But I was there during a day and also late in the night.

Metropol Parasol is a wooden structure located at La Encarnación square, in the old quarter of Seville, Spain. It was designed by the German architect Jürgen Mayer-Hermann and completed in April 2011. It has dimensions of 150 by 70 metres and an approximate height of 26 metres and claims to be the largest wooden structure in the world. Its appearance, location, delays and cost overruns in construction resulted in much public controversy. he structure consists of six parasols in the form of giant shrooms ("Las setas" in Spanish), whose design is inspired by the vaults of the Cathedral of Seville and the ficus trees in the nearby Plaza de Cristo de Burgos.
