Rumor has it that this beautiful tower was once tiled in gold; now, it houses a museum detailing the maritime history of the city.

This tower, which is free to visit on Mondays and a nominal fee the rest of the week, offers the chance to walk to the top for nice views of the river, and has an interesting history display on the first floor of the tower's...More

The golden tower is a truthful testimony of the almohades hegemony which territory started from the Moroccan desert in the south up to the present Andalusia in Spain. Worth to be visited.

Despite this landmark standing in full view on the water's edge, the Torre del Oro was surprisingly quiet and offered some fabulous views across the river. Entrance was fairly cheap and the exhibition - about the construction of the tower - was interesting. The whole...More

The Torre del Oro sits on the banks of the Canal de Alfonso XIII in the heart of Seville. The entry price is very reasonable and the view from the (almost) top is great. Inside is a very small naval museum, it has very few...More

Tight winding staircase leads to the viewing platform where you can gaze up and down river exactly as intended when the tower was built almost 800 years ago. One small room about halfway up houses a maritime museum with good model ships. There are information...More

I passed by this tower on my way to the Maestranza. This ancient tower is located on one side of the river. It once served as a military watchtower. Now, this tower houses a small naval museum. I understand it is free entry on Monday....More

Entry ticket is cheap, the tower hosts a very simplistic naval museum. History of the tower across ages is well depicted. I overall like the top view of the city and Guadalquivir

This used to be a naval building which would protect the port. It is also the main meeting point for city tours. If you are a naval enthusiast then you should visit.

Not a overly tall tower, but easy to climb and provides great views up and down the river area. Interesting little museum within the tower. worth a quick look

A lovely medieval building with lots of character and some great views. Although the tower isn't that tall, Seville isn't a built up city so you still get to see lots. Its a great place to meet up with friends and also the river cruise...More

It's cheap to go up and there are stairs. Whether they can climb it depends on health. Definitely not for frail or handicapped people. I was slightly winded and I am 56 and in reasonably good shape. The view made it worth... More
