Torre Giralda is part Muslim minaret with the top third a later addition added after the reconquest by the Christians in 1248. The mix of Mudejar and Renaiassance works in perfect harmony. Access is included in the cathedral entrance fee and ascending is not too strenuous as it is by a series of ramps (one couple was seen pushing a... More

This is a must do for anyone who is physically able. It's a little bit of a work out to get to the top, but there are lots of cool places to stop and take pictures if you need a break. The bells ring every quarter hour, so make sure that you are up there to see them ring. There... More

Nice view of Seville from the top but very touristic. Takes some energy to go on the top but all fine.

Beautiful view of Sevilla once that you reach the tower , but very long climb to the top , worth it if you have the stamina.

A visit to Seville is surely not complete without a trek to the top of the Giralda. There are no steps and the steady incline to the top is not overly steep. There are plenty of opportunities to stop en route to the top, with some displays, small 'rooms' and plenty of little windows to gaze out of as the... More

The Giralda Tower entry is included in the ticket for the Cathedral. It is €9 and we booked it in advance. You really have to do this because there was every day a very long queque!

The tower does not have steps but os a slow, steady spiral incline which makes it much easier to climb. It was not crowded and quite wide so there is no problem passing people going the other way. Once at the top you are rewatded with spectacular views of Seville which make the climb up well worth it.

It's a part of the cathedral it looks really nice but I don't think you need to go up. I didn't see the need to do it though.

Worth climbing all the way up to the top for superb views of Seville. The climb is easier than many towers as there is a ramp most of the way rather than steps. There are also views from various points on the way up which means you can pause for a few minutes and take a look! We climbed the... More
