Las Setas

2010 December 15
by Shawn Hennessey


Word has it that the monstrosity that has been growing in the Plaza Encarnación, locally known as either “Las Setas” (the mushrooms) or the “Metropol Parasol”, is going to open this Sunday, December 19th. Given the state of the place at the moment it’s hard to believe, but perhaps they are just going to open the lower level where the market stalls are. It would certainly be a boon for the vendors who have been waiting for their new digs (pun intended) for years after it was held up for archaeological excavation and research. And as much as I abhor this atrocious structure, when I had a peek into where the new market stalls will be, it looked very nicely organised indeed.

So do go on Sunday and support the vendors.
Just don’t look up…

    I think the Parasoles is the “official” name, and the Setas is the local name. Personally I would be worried about going anywhere with that much scaffolding still up, never mind the aesthetic objections!

      When I walked past this evening it was really hard to imagine how they would get all that scaffolding down in less than a week.
