Also known as “the mushrooms”, it is located in Plaza de la Encarnación and is the work of the German architect Jürgen Mayer. Opened in 2011, the appearance of this rectangular square changed dramatically. Its construction is entirely made of wood, and it measures 150 m long, 70 m wide and 26 m high. It is the largest wooden structure in the world.
The building base houses a marketplace and numerous restaurants. On the ground floor is located the “Antiquarium” Archaeological Museum, which shows the Roman and Arab remains found during its construction. The “mushrooms” are crowned with a terrace and a viewpoint with fantastic views of the old town. At night, the lighting makes the monument even more spectacular
