Some think that it is out of place, a blight on the landscape of an ancient city. Yet many of the residents of Sevilla in Spain love the recently opened Metropol Parasol and see it as something which will serve to rejuvenate their city while still nodding to the past beneath it. It certainly turns heads - and what's more - it is officially the largest wooden structure in the world.
