Rumor has it that this beautiful tower was once tiled in gold; now, it houses a museum detailing the maritime history of the city.

This is definitely a landmark along the river. The museum is not worth it. Take a picture as it is definitely an interesting building.

Known as the Gold Tower and houses an interesting little maritime museum, it's located right by the river. Originally built by the Moors around 1221 to fend off the Spanish and Christians, if I have that right. Entrance is 3€. You walk up the narrow,...More

Very important place in Sevilla. It is located near Canale de 8.Alfonso and also very close to Sevilla Arena (bull wrestling arena).

The Gold Tower was a key defense post of Seville's vibrant trade with the Americas. It is now a viewing terrace right next to the river.

Must visit place in Seville. Also known as golden tower, this was previously a watch tower. Along the Guadalquivir river, this is a great place to take a stroll and watch people kayaking on the river and boats passing by.
