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history in the military watchtower’s maritime museum, which contains fossilized marine debris, compasses, old charts, historical documents, a 16th-century cannon, anchors, and flags.

No te dejes engañar por la sencillez que presenta esta torre a primera vista, pues entre más la mires, más bonita te parecerá.

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.
