La Torre del Oro Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover La Torre del Oro

Along with the Giralda and Alcazar Palace, the Golden tower is one of Seville's emblematic monuments. Nestled on the banks of the Guadalquivir, near San Telmo bridge, this impressive Medieval tower was built by Almohads in the 13th century and guarded the gold brought back by the conquistadores from the new world. It is now home to the Marine and a starting point for cruises on the Guadalquivir.
