Well worth a visit - great to look at. Great location next to the river ! We didn't go up the Torre but we are advised that you for 3e. Have fun !! more »
Not really that interesting unless you want to visit the tiny naval/Maritime museum. The views aren't really that great, but not bad either. I wouldn't bother if you're only spending a couple of days in Seville. On a relative basis, it's lower on the list, but objectively, this would be more interesting if it were in another city with much less history and significance. The location is nice as it's located by the river.
We didn’t go inside as there is an entrance fee and we didn’t have the time. But the tower is in a lovely spot on the river bank in Seville. You can imagine it as a gateway into the city in past times. From the top of the tower it must have a great view back over the city.
