Fantastic view..

Beautiful views all the way across Seville and well worth the climb up to the top. The climb was very easy and slopes rather than steps

Normally I hate climbing, but this tower has rather relaxed ramps, wide and high enough and with a relaxed incline, specially made for horses, to be able to climb the tower on horseback, back in the old days. Even then, 46 ramps is still a proposition, but once at the top the views are stunning. Look around Sevilla, see everything.... More

Sorry if this is an obvious statement, but this tower is pretty much a long flight of steeply turning ramp, a viewing area at the top, and nothing else. Yes it has good views of the city, but it won't keep you entertained or amazed for long. Much better is the cathedral, to which it is appended.

You may think it's impossible to reach the top since it's endless but the beautiful view is worth it ;) Don't go in the afternoon in summer or you'll melt in there.

Even visiting during the off-season, the Tower was busy and the walk up was a slow slog with lots of people. There were window outcrops on every level that offering nice, ever-rising views and you could stop for a moment out of the masses and grab a pic. The view at the top though-spectacular. Beautiful Seville in every direction. Too... More

The walk up the Giralda was worth it. The views of Seville from up top are incredible. You also get to see great views of the cathedral. Would recommend taking the time to go up.

Fun walking up the spiral staircase and great 360 degree views from the top of the tower. You can also see (and hear) the bells up there. Its included in the ticket you buy for the cathedral.

Giralda tower was minaret of mosque which was replaced by Sevilla cathedral after re conquesta. Minaret turned into a bell tower, which it currently stands as. Graceful piece of Spanish Muslim heritage. An absolutely must see.

Ok this tower must be the first stop of your visit to the catedral.Afterwards you go back in the catedral,sit down on the wooden benches inside and grasp the vast and high space of this architectural phenomenon,all this in a more acceptable lower than outside temperature which you will super much enjoy if you visit Seville in August.Buy your entrance...

Worth the walk up to see the whole of Seville from every angle. Includes entry when you enter the cathedral. Unliike other cathedrals, this does not include steps, but has ramps so it is suitable for everyone. Also includes entry to church de Salvador.
