Photo Friday: Torre del Oro

Torre del Oro in Seville.

There are much more grandiose and better known attractions in the ancient city of Seville, but we really grew to like the peaceful river walk around the Torre del Oro, or Tower of Gold, beside the Guadalquivir River.  


The twelve-sided military watchtower built in the year 1220 was designed to protect the city from invaders, served as a prison in the Middle Ages, and is now a small naval museum with lovely views from the top.

  2. I am always fascinated by the age of buildings in Europe. We have nothing like this in Australia. It looks like a wonderful place for a walk.

  5. I can see why you liked this tower - I just love that Spanish style of architecture. That last photo of the tower at night is beautiful!
