As part of the Cathedral portion of the tour, we had access to the Giralda Tower. It's just a large exisiting tower and made part of this grand church. Yes, you can go up the many ramps to the top with the bell towers and see amazing views, but there are other places within Seville that you can get to... More

I love to climb to the top of tower and get a bird's eye view of the city, and the plaza and courtyard below.

The first time I went to Seville, the city we loved, each of the places has its charm, but especially the Giralda and its surroundings is the best! we sat opposite the Tower to carefully observe and then accessed the interior. Despite the row we had to do and you have to climb slopes, when you get to the top... More

although 35 floors it is well worth the effort to see the view from the top and to see all the bells.

The ramp was made when the Cathedral used to be a mosque.It allowed a horse or a donkey to bring muezzin to the very top. The older visitors can definitely appreciate this arrangement:it's much easier than hundred(s). I quite disagree with reviews claiming one need strong legs: I'm definitely out of shape but it was only moderate effort. Views from... More

The Cathedral is incredible, but climbing the tower and then seeing the view is alone worth the price of admission.

The Giralda is worth climbing to, as you can have an amazing view from all the city but also because while your climbing, you can imagine people from previous centuries climbing it in horses or by foot. It takes some effort, but once you reach the top, you'll see it was worth it.

While exploring the cathedral we saw the entrance to the tower. It was not clearly labeled so we exactly did not know how high up and how many floors we would have to go. It was a lot of walking and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who does not have strong leg muscles or is out of shape. If... More

It is upclimb all the way but it does wonders to your leg muscles. Ensure that your camera is fully charged because the view upstairs is breathtaking.
