  • It is a highly recommended visit. In the tower you have the history of Spanish navigation (summary and not complete), but it becomes a good idea. Also from the top of the tower there are spectacular views of Seville.

  • Do not be fooled by the simplicity presented by this tower at first sight, because the more you look at it, the more beautiful it will seem to you. At the foot of the Guadalquivir, it is a clear icon of Seville that is worth visiting and knowing its history. If you have the opportunity to enter inside, for which you have to pay entrance, you will enjoy incredible views.

  • A few steps to get to the top but great views. Easy to find down by the river. 21 bus from railway station stops right outside. Lovely river to walk along. Great restaurants. Well worth a visit.
  • Good price for the view and an exhibition inside. It's worth the effort, but the top of the tower is interdict so you can only reach the level below. But for the price I would recommend it.
