Torre del Oro of Seville
The Torre del Oro is located on the Paseo de Colón, next to the river Guadalquivir. It was built by the Almohad in 1221, as a defense. The body that crowns the circular tower was added later in 1760.
The tower also served as prison during the Middle Ages and a safe venue for saving precious metals brought in periodically by the Indian fleet.
It is currently a Naval Museum containing prints, nautical charts, models, navigational instruments and ancient and historical documents. It paints a picture of the naval history of Seville, the importance of their river and the footprint of the illustrious marine history.
