The inside story
Seville's Tower of Gold (Torre del Oro), undoubtedly one of the most iconic landmarks of the city, has guarded Seville since its construction in the 13th century. Built as a watchtower in the Almohad dynasty, through the centuries, the Tower of Gold has been used as a chapel, a prison, a lookout point and a gunpowder store. Climbing the tower is a must-do activity for any visit to Seville. From the top, you can look out for a spectacular view of the river and of the Triana neighborhood. Getting its name from the golden hue its high walls project on the river below, make sure to take a stroll around the base of the tower after you climb to the top!
