Setas? Setas? This translates in Spanish to “mushrooms”. Now, I am not sure if there are mushrooms growing in Seville, but it is the nickname of the wooden structure in the center of Seville. Resembling mushrooms, these wooden parasols are located at Plaza de la Encarnación in Seville. The project is named Las Setas de Sevilla.
