  • Just OK. Not expensive to enter. There is a ten minute video at the start displaying the sights and sounds of Seville. After that is you do a quick trip around the structure. It's very short. 5 mins.....  more »
  • Well worth the walk here from our hotel 15 minutes away. Panoramic views available everywhere and rarely will the weather spoil it. A glorious day and nice to soak up the skylines of such an impressive city. Really central too and plenty to do in the location. Lots of independent shops and shopping options in the immediate area to help pass a morning or afternoon.
  • A very interesting and some say controversial piece of architecture. Great views back across the city. Worth a was 3 euros to go up on top. 5 stars for the view. Strange it has small steps on the sloping roof path considering there's only 17 steps to get to top of the Cathedral. ....surely a non slip material on here would have been more appropriate.
