The access to the upper level is made out of an helicoidal ramp, which was accessible riding a horse at the arab time. The upper structures constructed by the Christians include the Bell... More

Wonderful views when one reaches the summit of the tower with outstanding vistas of Seville and beyond, along with close scrutiny of the Cathedral bells.

Views from the tower are hardly more impressive than those of the Giralda itself - and it is a bit of a climb, though not via steps - but once you have paid for entrance to the cathedral (a 'must') you had just as well take the trouble and do it...

If you are feeling fit and like a bit of an uphill walk then try the 37 level ascent for a great view of Seville. It's by no means a must do but we found the ascent tolerable (it's a slope not stairs) and the view nice enough. We didn't have to put up with heat in November but I... More

Great view over Sevilla and you can see the Clockwerk as well as the clocks... I really loved the atmosphere there. I can recommend that.

This tower is a landmark of Seville, accessible from the Cathedral. It is not too difficult to climb to the top because there is a ramp that goes all the way up with several landings to rest. During the Moorish days of Seville, horses would use this ramp to bring the muezzin to the top to call the faithful to... More

Part of cathedral visit for € 9. Decent climb, no stairs but slide. Great 360° view. The must-see in Sevilla.

The climb up to the bell tower is worth doing. It is an easy incline, not steps, and ever dozen yards or so thee is a window that gives you a great view of various parts of the city. Go all the way, it will take your breath away.

The Giralda is the bell tower of the great Seville Cathedral. What's important to know is that it was originally the minaret of the great Mosque of Seville before it became part of the cathedral and a belfry added when the Christians took Seville in the 13th century. No tour of Seville Cathedral would be complete without walking up to... More
