Torre del Oro Tours

star-4
1 Review
Torre del Oro
The 12-sided Torre del Oro, perched on the Guadalquivir River, is a Seville landmark. Also known as the Golden Tower, it was constructed in the 13th century when the city was ruled by the Almohads, a Berber Muslim dynasty. Visit the Torre del Oro to peruse its onsite naval museum, and for views from the top of the tower.

The Basics
It’s hard to miss the Torre del Oro, especially as you stroll along the river or head to the nearby Alcázar of Seville. Inside, a naval museum includes a collection of navigational charts and replica models of famous ships such as the Santa Maria. You can also climb the spiral staircase to the top for expansive views of this Spanish city.
 
Given its importance to the city and central location, the Torre del Oro is a frequent stop on tours of all kinds, including bike, Segway, bus, and walking tours. Most of these excursions also visit top Seville attractions such as the Bullring of the Royal Maestranza and Royal Alcázar Palace. Boat tours also pass by its riverside location.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A photo stop in front of Torre del Oro is a must for any visitor to Seville; maritime buffs will want to pay the small fee to walk through the museum.
  • A narrow, winding staircase must be climbed to reach the top.

How to Get There
The Torre del Oro is unmistakable on the Seville landscape. It’s located at Paseo de Cristóbal Colón, at the bridge over the Guadalquivir River. The tower is easy to reach on foot or by city rental bike. There is limited metered parking nearby. The nearest bus stop is Paseo Colón.

When to Get There

Torre del Oro is open to visitors daily, except during holidays. There is a small entrance fee, but it is free to visit on Mondays.

Behind the Name
The meaning of the name Torre del Oro, or Golden Tower, remains somewhat of a mystery. Some believe it is a reference to what was once the gold-tiled exterior of the tower, while others say it refers to the city’s status as a dropping point for gold delivery from the New World. It may also simply refer to the tower’s golden reflection on the Rio Guadalquivir, especially striking at sunset.
Address: Paseo de Cristóbal Colón, Seville, Andalucia 41001, Spain
