Seville, Spain

Maybe a bit different looking to the others but the Metropol Parasol was recently finished in Seville, to cover the Plaza de la Encarnacion.

This is not the Plaza Mayor of Seville. It's the Metropol Parasol, in Plaza de la Encarnación. The name of Plaza Mayor was invented by the preceding mayor. Seville hasn't got Plaza Mayor

Maybe not the main 'Plaza Mayor' but it's cool as hell!
