Torre del Oro Sevilla Reviews
Jul 13, 2007
The Torre del oro, or golden tower, is one of the symbols of Sevilla, and one of the higher towers of the city. You'll find the maritime museum inside of the building, which was constructed in 1220 and was a part of the old city walls.
The Torre del oro was build during the richest period of Sevilla, when ships full of gold and treasury sailed into the city. The construction used to be decorated with golden tiles, but those can't be seen anymore. Tourist can climb the tower for a view over Sevilla, but I would recommend just to walk by, since the view from upon the Giralda can't be beaten by the torre del oro.
