Built by the Almohad dynasty to protect the city from invading forces, Torre del Oro looms over the entrance to the city along the Guadalquivir River. Learn about Sevilla’s naval history in the military watchtower’s maritime museum, which contains fossilized marine debris, compasses, old charts, historical documents, a 16th-century cannon, anchors, and flags. The top of the tower also offers outstanding views of the city and river. Arrange to visit Torre del Oro and other attractions in Seville using our Seville trip planner.

Torre del Oro Reviews
Good viewing point over Seville. We were there on Monday this week and it was free on that day. Not too crowded and plenty of information to be had. Well worth a visit more »
It costs peanuts to enter and yet contains a great deal of information about the history of the city. A great way to find out more in an iconic bulding and it does not take long to do the whole thing more »
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.
