Owner description: Rumor has it that this beautiful tower was once tiled in gold; now, it houses a museum detailing the maritime history of the city.
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The top of the tower has good views of the river and the city. However one has to walk up many steps to get to the top of the building. The museum in the tower is not that good, but there are scale models of ships that one can see, as well as maritime maps and instruments.

Would not put this on my top attractions in Seville but if you have a half hour to spare it will fill the time.

Unless you can read Spanish, military and naval fans can get a kick out of this place by checking out paintings, replicas of ships in the discovery of America.

They cranked up the heat unnecessarily. Didn't enjoy it until I went outside.

The view from the top of the tower is beautiful and the small naval museum inside is interesting with very good replicas of the most important ships from the discovery of the new world. A lot of stuff also for ancient scuba diving and so on. For only 3 euro it worth a visit even only for the view.

The museum is small. I only spent about an hour in it. If you're into naval history and such stuff, this is the place for you but only if you can read Spanish. I can't, so find myself wandering around, trying to look for someone who could at least explain something to me. Sadly, there was none. They have a nice spiral staircase to the tower though.
