This is one of Seville landmarks. You have an interesting museum about the city's history and the sea navigation crucial role in the city's changing fortunes. On top of the tower there are nice views to the city and the river.

Lots of history, well presented, great views of the city and river. If you like naval history it’s worth a trip.

Rode past in a horse and cart. Views are probably reasonable inside. Would be worth a visit given adequate time.
