  • I came here in the morning and later in the evening for the light show. It’s an amazing wooden structure in Seville. With the rooftop walkway, you can have a panoramic view of Seville city. The light show wasn’t so incredible but still nice to see with a very light music playing. One small tip is to book your tickets beforehand, and choose the show time around 7pm to 7.30pm to enjoy the sunset (if you want to see sunset) and also the light show which costs just 8 euros. If you just want to see the light show at night then the ticket costs 10 euros. The light show will start at 8pm.
  • Although we didn't climb to the top of this gorgeous and magical destination. We felt the abundance of overwhelming breathtaking enormity of this magical ate installation. Known for it's architecture and engineering prowess, Spain has delivered a unique world record breaking structure. Infamously known as the largest wooden structure on the planet you will be awestruck by it's practicality and intelligent use of space, not mention it's monolithic feel. Please come and visit and share your experience with the world. You will not regret visiting
