In 10 years, Las Setas de Sevilla, the largest wooden structure in the world, has become the third most visited monument in Sevilla. It is also one of the most sustainable and welcoming in the Sevillian city.
Now, after an investment of 14 million euros, Las Setas renew themselves to improve their touristic offer under the motto “10 years in the heart of Sevilla”.
According to Pedro Parrilla, manager of Las Setas, “the new elements strengthen Sacyr Concesiones’ commitment to the city. In this decade, Las Setas have positioned themselves as a clear touristic example”.
‘Aurora’, the light of Sevilla
One of the main new experiences is the lights show ‘Aurora’: an immersive experience of light and sound with a cultural, artistic and technological character, which incorporates elements like the space occupancy and movement of the visitors at each moment, the weather, wind, or the time of the year.
We have also opened the immersive room ‘Feeling Sevilla’, at 21-meters of height and with more than 200 m2 of surface area. This room is equipped with a singular technology: a curved 21x3 meter LED screen with the best image resolution.
Additionally, it also has 360º sound, floor projection, ceiling LED lighting, air effect, smell maps through diffusers and a stand area where visitors can enjoy a very special audiovisual piece. ‘Feeling Sevilla’ is a piece created for this room that allows visitors to live a complete experience: to see, hear, touch, smell… Feel Sevilla in every single corner.
These experiences come with the cleaning and tuning up work of the walkways and the overlook that was done during the pandemic.
As part of this project, Sacyr has renovated the website of this emblematic Sacyr Concesiones asset, available in three languages, and the mobile app of Las Setas.
Furthermore, we are also finalizing construction of the Hotel ABBA Sevilla next to the Las Setas complex, managed by hotel chain ABBA. This hotel will have 94 rooms.
The largest wooden structure in the world
Las Setas de Sevilla is the largest wooden structure in the world and the third most visited monument in the city of Sevilla.
The design of the complex is based on the reticular structure that towers over the Plaza de la Encarnación and allows to walk over the sunshades and enjoy a unique view of the city. The structure harbors a museum, a market, an elevated plaza with a broad gastronomic and cultural offer, and a multipurpose pavilion.
The structure is made with 3,500 gross m3 of microlaminated Finnish pinewood. Within the framework of our commitment to sustainability, we planted three pine trees for every cut pine in the very same forests they originally came from.
