Easy climb, well worth it for the view

Easy walk up the ramps, only a few steps at the very top. Got a good view of the city over the rooftops

Ticket to the Cathedral includes going up here. Try to be on top at top of hte hour - the bells are RIGHT THERE ringing. The best views in Seville, period. Enjoy the walk up the ramps - easier than stairs.

A truly monumental gothic church and an absolute must see - despite the queue's though you can book online and avoid them. Just looking at the cathedral from outside was gratifying enough never mind being able to go inside. It really was good value too compared to some of the things I've paid to see! The tomb of Christopher columbus... More

Fortunately not stairs - well 17 at the top, but 37 ramps up to the top of the Giralda viewing platform. Inside the tower, instead of stairs, stone ramps wend their way around the edge of the structure inside - mules used to take the caller to prayers up to the top ! (cant recall correct term!) so you can... More
