We were here in August and the coolness of the tower was a nice break. There are ramps no stairs so it is a pretty easy climb up, you don't need to be very fit. When you first get to the cathedral you may see a really long queue for the tower. Don't join it. Go and visit the cathedral... More

It takes some effort to get to the top of this tower. And there are only ramps, no stairs, which is actually easier. But there are 35 ramps! The views at the top are great!

No steps here, but slopes to walk up to the top, so very comfortable (unless you wear high heels) and great views from the top.

It cost £4 to get in and I feel we got our money's worth. The clilmb to the top is all a slope rather than steps, which allows people with buggies or possible disabled people to also climb to the top. Much safer than some of the rickety church towers I climbed in Italy! We even snaffled some oranges from... More

Well worth the climb up the 34 ramps. Just make sure you don't get trampled by a herd of children coming the other way, at their age they should know better. The views over Seville were fantastic.

I remember a few years ago when I went to Seville with my mum I was stunned by the views. So I urged by partner to climb here, it's not very difficult just ramps going up. The views are stunning. It was slightly ruined by screaming kids on a school trip. But when you got views like this, they can... More

The Giralda Tower is part of the price of the cathedral admission. The climb is equivalent of 34 flights. There are places to pause and catch your breath. The view at the top though will take your breath away it is that stunningly beautiful. The tower was originally a Moorish minaret but it turned into a bell tower after the... More

Three are 34 ramps and a small staircase to get to the top of this bell tower. Each ramp is numbered. There are many view ports on the way up for great views of the city. So just take your time and enjoy the view! Also be sure to see the exhibits on the inside walls of the ramps.
