It was a never-ending winding road up. No stairs but just an incline going up and up the tower. Great view - best probably in Seville! The cathedral itself was fabulous! The ticket for this is also good for the Iglesia Colegia del Salvador. So save your ticket and visit both.

Be ready to climb 35 stories equivalent as there are no elevators !... But after you do that, the views are spectacular. The viewing area is sorta cramped so try to climb up only when not too crowded.

Climbed up the 36 flights to see the breathtaking views of Seville, definitely a must on any trip to Seville. The architecture and detailing along the way.... wow!

Originally a Moorish minaret, the climb to the top is via a ramp. The ramp was built to allow a horse or donkey to carry a person to the top. The climb is well worth the effort. Seville can be viewed from all directions.

We went up the tower as part of our visit to the cathedral. It was fantastic, easy to get up as there are ramps all the way up except for the last 17 steps. Great views but beware the bell chimes 😀.

A huge climb to reach the top, but the view was worth it. Just make sure you have your comfy shoes on ,

Best view across town. Easier to walk up as you think as it is slopes on a gradient rather than steps. Go on you know you want to see Sevilla from above!

37 'ramps' and 15 steps to the top. Can be done in a wheelchair with a fit friend to push. Worth the walk [its not a climb] for some great views around the town in all directions. Noisy when the bells go off but worth the effort.
