Giralda Tower is a former muslim minaret that was converted into a belfry for Sevilha Cathedral, Considered since 1987 a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The tower measures 104.1 meters in height. Very uphill, not suitable for the elderly and people with heart problems.

It is 34 levels, but worth the climb. Amazingly, there is a nice breeze and the climb is not nearly as bad as you would think. It has ramps the entire way and you catch great views (and breaks) as you go up by stopping at them. The views from the top are breathtaking and give you a great panoramic... More

It is a good long climb on a narrow ramp - no stairs - but plenty of stopping spots in window bays, View is excellent and worth the climb.Plenty of wall at the top so no vertigo problems

45 degrees plus in Seville but we managed the ingenious ramp system that allows us whose first love is not walking upstairs to reach over 33 levels and take in the fabulous views from the top of the bell tower. I believe on a clear day you can see straight down the river to the ocean.!!!! But we could not.... More

No Stairs, it is ramped it is congested. Also be a bit forward don't get nudged out of the way tourists especially Chinese who jump in front of you. This doesn't apply to all of them. The view is 360o of the city using the viewing points good for photos also take binochulars

Entry is via a the cathedral (requires a ticket). Ramps take you up to the top of the tower (the climb wasn't too taxing). Good views from the top.

My husband and I climbed the Giralda Tower and were very glad we did. When you purchase your ticket to visit the Cathedral, it includes the ticket to cilimb the Giralda Tower. The climb is less taxing than other towers we have climbed, since it is a ramp that swirls around the tower rather than steps. The views from the... More
