And if today we know it as such, it is in part thanks to the popular intervention that averted that it was thrown down on several occasions. Currently, it has an interesting naval museum, which can be visited for €3. Also, it should be noted the excellent views from the roof terrace. Anecdotally, according to the story, this singular Torre del Oro served as refuge for the ladies who courted the King Pedro I. In you atardeces them of summer, the Torre del Oro acquires a special color.

Save money and time that you would have dedicated destinatelo to something else.
Not really that interesting unless you want to visit the tiny naval/Maritime museum. The views aren't really that great, but not bad either. I wouldn't bother if you're only spending a couple of days in Seville. On a relative basis, it's lower on the list, but objectively, this would be more interesting if it were in another city with much less history and significance. The location is nice as it's located by the river.
We didn’t go inside as there is an entrance fee and we didn’t have the time. But the tower is in a lovely spot on the river bank in Seville. You can imagine it as a gateway into the city in past times. From the top of the tower it must have a great view back over the city.
