  • you only make a donation to enter. small martime museum and a view of the river from the turrets. you do not go to the top. not really worth a detour but a walk by the river is lovely

  • Fantastic, great history and great views, never knew that this was the place of the first circumnavigation of the globe. There's a portrait of the men exiting the ship after voyage.

  • Awesome views from the top, river on one side and the city on the other. If you're into history you'll enjoy the small but great museum inside which offers a lot of information about the history of the city and the navy. Entrance is actually free, but you can make a voluntary contribution if you wish. There was no wait to get in, but once at the top, you might have to wait a few minutes to walk up to the top of the stairs because everyone wants to do the same thing to take selfies 🤳 😀
  • Lovely! Entrance is free. Also worth a visit if you are not into marine, (ancient) ships and history. Than just skip the exhibition and go to the top. Stunning view over Sevilla.
