La Torre del Oro (Golden Tower):

Torre del Oro, Sevilla, España

  • Brief description: Its name in Arabic is Borg-al-Azajal, a reference to the golden brilliance reflected on the river. The Tower, now alone, was one of 166 towers that formed part of the wall the Muslims employed to protect Seville from the Christians. The best view of the Tower is from the other side of the river, from Plaza de Cuba. For anyone interested, it houses the Naval Museum of Seville. In addition you can go up into the Tower and enjoy magnificent views over the river (although our opinion is an outside look is enough).
