Torre Del Oro - Review
Now a naval museum, this 12-sided 13th century construct was once a military watchtower. It was important in controlling accesss to the city’s ports by raising strategic chains across the water. The view from the top is always worth a climb and there are some pretty god replicas of ancient ships inside, as well as some ancient scuba divng gear. The name is a bit misleading though. There never was any substantial amount of gold here.

Torre Del Oro, Seville Reviews
For historic ships enthusiasts this is a good site especially that it's cheap to enter, but don't expect much to see in the small museum. There are nice small paintings of ships and beautiful models that are impressive to see. Some large copies of old maps that are great to see also. The view from the top is not impressive but it's nice to see as a bonus, you pay 3 € to see the historic site, and you get to climb up to the top of the tower.
Really interesting place. Translations into English with most of the exhibits. Beautiful view at the top. Seville is a beautiful city.
You should definitely visit the Torre del Oro (Golden Tower) while you are in Seville but don’t expect anything mindblowing. It’s an important historical landmark that has been in the same place for almost 800 years thus making it unmissable. Inside you will find some little history of the city of Seville, the tower and the times when Seville was the most important port in Spain. The views you will get from the top aren’t the best you can get in Seville. Plan your trip so that you go on a Monday, the day with free admission to make it worth.
Historic place you must visit in Seville. You can enter and visit. Free on Mondays. Top views are nice
The Torre del Oro may seem to be a small attraction in comparison to the other options in Sevilla but there is a lot packed into the tower. The small museum inside contains a lot of maritime history which was very interesting. The view from the top was also great!
