Torre del Oro reviews
The tower is very well lit at night, and during the day the tourist boats depart from here on the river.

Very interesting building and museum to learn more about the history of Sevilla, the importance of trade and navy throughout the centuries.

It is very useful as a marker as you try to navigate around Seville as it seems to be on many of the signposts. Seville is a maze of alleys and small, cobbled roads so these signs do help a lot. As to the tower itself, it's not really that impressive other than its history which dates back to Moorish times. Plus you do have to think about where all the gold and silver it stored came from...and who died acquiring it. The river cruise starts from here.
Been there, done that ;)
