This beautifully designed and constructed tower is a prominent and highly attractive landmark in the city. It is well worth ascending to see the splendid views of the city and the Cathedral alongside. (I am not sure whether the Giralda Tower is a part of the Cathedral or a separate structure).

It's an easy climb because it has ramps rather than stairs. There are also some small areas to rest, It's also wide enough to allow a smooth flow of traffic of people going up and down the tower. When you get to the top, you have a 360-degree view of the city.

It is safe and not tiring to walk up the tower as you are climbing via slopes rather than stairs. You will have photo opportunity along the way. Although it is usually but but you can rest if you would like to do without blocking others as the space is not too tight. The view is absolutely great and I... More

You could climb up to get a great view over Seville around all aspects. It was pretty busy so get there early and be warned it's all ramps except the last maybe 8 steps. There were a lot of people taking breathers.

Quite a hike up to the top! 34 levels but well worth it. You can just feel the history on the way up and the views from the top are unrivalled.

If you are prepared to walk up 34 levels (ramps) and then an additional flight of 15 stairs, you will be able to see views of Sevilla from the four sides of the bell tower. It's the best views that you'll likely have from anywhere in the city. Note that the 34 levels do not equate to 34 flights of... More

The tower is an easy walk up and great for taking pictures of the cathedral around sunset and admiring the replicas of the boats of Columbus
