Torre Giralda, Seville

Once an ancient mosque’s minaret, Torre Giralda is a converted belfry soaring over the city’s famous Gothic cathedral. A symbol of the city easily recognizable from countless postcards and tourist brochures, the tower can be climbed for a sweeping view of the surrounding area. This brick tower on the northeastern side of the World Heritage–listed cathedral is 104 m (341 ft) tall, originally built around 1190. The tallest sections of the tower were added much later, when Christians took over most of the city’s Islamic buildings and converted them to suit their religious needs. The tower can only be accessed through the cathedral. To ensure entry, check online for available tour options before you go.

  • Spectacular though a bit crowded and more if it is during Holy week, this next to the Cathedral and in the Centre of Seville

  • Magnificent monument of must-see if you are in Seville. It is the most beautiful of Seville, highly recommended place.

  • always pay the ticket for the giralda as well as for the Cathedral because the real show of the Cathedral is "climb" la giralda and observe the Cathedral from each other as you climb to the top.
