Totally worth the (long!) walk. No stairs - all ramps. Views from the top are 360-degrees and breath-taking. Might be fun to do at the end of your stay, so you can try to orient yourself to where things are. Warning - bells might ring while you're at the top (but that's part of the experience!)

Tried to walk up on the 34 ramps to the top, but despite the fact that a man on horseback could go up the ramps,I found it too claustrophobic and turned around. I bet the view is fantastic. The view from our hotel of this landmark was good enough

It is a long climb to the top but slopes 37 not steps ( until the last flight 17 steps I think!) on the wall ahead of you is a number so you know how far you've gone and how many more to go! It was a sunny Saturday in March, we arrived early and had a HUGE queue ahead... More

A spectacular view of the city. This once-minaret, now bell tower is in a very pretty spot in the city, and although I have not personally climbed it in a few years (getting a bit old for that) many of my fellow travelers have and I have seen their photos of the view. Some of my students even did a... More

Nice to get the view of the city without having steps to climb. It's much easier to climb the ramp plus it isn't crampled like so many tower climbs.

It is well worth the effort to walk up to the top of the tower. It is a series of 35 ramps and then 17 stairs at the end up to the top. The views out over the city are spectacular.

We weren't sure midway through the 34 ramps up to the top of the Giralda Bell Tower. After several stops to admire the views from side windows, we found the views from the top to be expansive and well worth the effort. Depending on how the rest of your Cathedral is going, you may want to do this first, rest,... More
