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 Reviews & Ratings
Small Naval museum. Not tall enough to offer panoramic views but a pleasant place to visit. The stairs make a gentle work-out. Enough history to interest rather than overwhelm. Good prices for wrinklies like us. Allow 1 hour.
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.
Great tour with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I dont support the slaughter of 100s of innocent animals in the name of sport. The stadium however is impressive and has a lot of history. It evokes the barbarian / gladiatorial arenas of our Roman ancestors and the tour gives you a good history lesson on how bull fighting came about so is worth a visit.
We went up on a Monday, when it was free to go up and that was definitely worth it. The museum inside the tower is interesting and the view from the top of the tower is very nice as well. Good stop if you're doing a small tour.
Cool place! It costs only 3 Euros to visit (for an adult) and it also includes a small naval museum. Very nice views from the top. Definitely worth it. The visit would take around 30 minutes.
