Set by the banks of the river, this tower rightfully houses the Naval museum. So far inland you would- unless very good on Spanish history realise that this is where Spanish explorers left to discover the New World and on their return from the Americas,...More

We we visited Torre del Oro or the Tower of Gold when we were in Seville. There wasn’t much gold on display to be honest but it was interesting to have a look around the tower nonetheless. The views are great too.

We arrived mildly interested in visiting this tower and came out so glad that we did! So much history to learn about with the emphasis on naval history. Unusually for me I read every caption in there and thoroughly enjoyed the timeline encircling the ground...More

Good views from the top of the tower. About in the middle is a naval museum, with reliques of ships and naval equipment. Entry is quite cheap at 3€, and actually goes towards a donation to the fondation of the naval museum.

The museum was interesting. The views are OK but not brilliant. Gave 4 as we did not have to pay as it was Monday. Otherwise I would have given only 3.5

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
