“Great view”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Well worth the effort if you are reasonably fit and not afraid of heights. Take your camera as the views of the city are stunning. It is a long way up and on the day we went it was very hot and crowded in the confined space so remember to take water. A great experience!!

A landmark a truly remarkable tower. The views are excellent from near the top. Access by ramp which makes it a easy climb.

“A must in Seville”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The climb up the 35 storeys of the Giralda is a must. The ramps are quite wide - allegedly so soldiers could ride their horses up - so unlike other towers, there's no congestion with people coming down. There are also niches along the way to stop and admire the view / catch your breath.
The view over Seville from here is unparalleled.

“On top of the world”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

The view from La Giralda is beautiful! You can see the whole of the city. Definitely worth the climb, you can rest on the way up, and there are only 17 steps, so anyone can get up there really.
