Nice tower to go in and look at the history, nice view from the top. I think it was free to go in because no one asked us for any money.

The tower has a lot of stairs to climb, but if you love to take pictures than you will find little openings on your way to the top that have excellent views for pics. It's about 20 some odd flights up but once you reach the top the view of Sevilla is breath taking.

Part of the cathedral tour. Unusually you climb the tower by ramps rather than steps which makes it much easier. Great views of the city from the top and not too bad for vertigo suffers like myself.

It is about a 300 foot climb to the top of the Giralda Tower via dozens of ramps. That is approximately the height of a 30-story building, but it is worth it. The views of the city are spectacular.

After touring the Cathedral, I highly recommend going up to the tower. The view is wonderful. There are 34 ramps leading up to the top - no steps, but pretty steep. It is worth it if you can physically do it.

Twin sister with the Marrakech Koutoubia, La Giralda stands up overlooking the whole city of Seville. It is worth going up the ramps and enjoying the amazing views of such a beautiful city. Enjoy!

The climb to the top of the Giralda tower is a highlight of our visits and the view from the top among the bells is fabulous.

Actually it's mostly a walk uphill, as you ascend by means of a series of ramps (apparently built that way so a horse could be ridden up it). Just a few stairs near the top. Great views of the cathedral below and the city beyond. Entry included in the ticket for the cathedral.

See my cathedral review for a full comment. Not sure why this is separate as it is an integral part of the cathedral and (IIRC) it can't be visited independently of the Cathedral. Worth checking. Do allow some time for the climb and return, there are 34 floors to climb.
