This impressive tower lies just off avenue de la constitution at the river's edge. Only 3 Euro's entrance and interesting, historical naval exhibitions. Nice views up the river toward Triana too. Easy to get to and worth a visit.

The golden tower is a truthful testimony of the almohades hegemony which territory started from the Moroccan desert in the south up to the present Andalusia in Spain. Worth to be visited.

Tight winding staircase leads to the viewing platform where you can gaze up and down river exactly as intended when the tower was built almost 800 years ago. One small room about halfway up houses a maritime museum with good model ships. There are information...More

I passed by this tower on my way to the Maestranza. This ancient tower is located on one side of the river. It once served as a military watchtower. Now, this tower houses a small naval museum. I understand it is free entry on Monday....More
