“Great View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Beautiful view of the city. Sucks that you have to climb a ramp that's thirty five levels high though. Once you're at the top however, it's all worth it. Fun fact, the ramp that you have to climb was there so that horses with men can ascend to the top of the tower much faster. Ain't nobody got time to climb it traditionally.

“Best way to get a great view of Seville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Just the fact to be walking inside a monument that started it´s construction in 1184 is more than enough for me. The 36 flights to get to the top wasn´t so bad (In every turn I skipped ahead some of the slower climbers) and the view wow, majestic.

“Gorgeous view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

There were a lot of people complaining about the 36 flight up, and that was the only bad part...listening to the tourists! So pop in your headphones and head up. It's amazingly beautiful up there!

“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

If you can stand the climb - ramps not steps, this is a good way to get views across the whole city.

“Improves your impression of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

An interesting climb, with 35 consecutive ramps, but well worth it for the views - impressive on every side. If you go to the cathedral, make sure you go up this tower!
