  • This fortified Tower on the left bank of the Guadalquivir is adjacent to the real Maestranza bullring in Seville. A nice photo opportunity.

  • Served as a gold storage in past times. Nowadays it's a museum about the maritime history of Seville. Nice panorama on top of the tower. Entry fee is low.
  • The view is fantastic, you can see the center really well. It is breathtaking. You also learn many historical facts and events that occured in Seville. It's really cheap, only 3€. Worth visiting.
  • We visited La Torre del Oro on Monday and the admission was free. The view of the city and the water are a must to see. The exhibition is interesting and well laid.
  • Great views from the top. Interesting maritime museum inside. Well worth a visit if you are nearby. We went of a Monday and found entry was free that day.
  • Great views up and down the river in Seville. Museum ok but not too much to see. Great value if you go when its free!
