The Torre del Oro looks like a small monument but it is not, from its top it is posible to have one of the best views of Seville and inside learn more about the naval history of Spain. It is by the Guadalquivir and is a watchtower built in the thirteenth century to protect the city. A legacy from the Almohad Caliphate times and you can see it in its architecture, belonged along with the Torre de la Plata to the walls defending Seville.
D. Alfonso XIII visita a torre no dia 10 de Abril de 1923 mas só em 1944 é inaugurado o Museu Naval onde podemos contemplar não só o seu retrato como uma réplica do Giralda, o iate do Rei de Espanha e o mascarón que se colocava na proa está exposto aqui. Mas o melhor da torre é a sua vista sobre Sevilha, vemos a Catedral, a Plaza de Espanha, a Torre de Sevilha – a mais alta de Andaluzia e o bairro de Triana.
