See Seville's wonderful landmarks on this relaxing cruise along the Guadalquivir River. As the former capital of Spain hugs the east bank of the Guadalquivir, a river cruise offers wonderful views of some of the city's monuments.

Itinerary

Guests must make their own way to the quay which is just off the Puente de San Telmo bridge. The tour departs from the quay at Muelle Torre del Oro S/N every 30 minutes.

Arrive at the quay and embark on a modern river boat that will take you on a one-hour long cruise down the legendary Guadalquivir river.

As the cruise takes you past the defining landmarks of the ancient Spanish capital, your multilingual guide will educate you about their history and significance. Admire and discover both sides of the Guadalquivir river, seeing famous monuments such as:

The Tower of Gold: The Gold Tower, or Torro del Orro, is a military watch tower built in the 13th century. During the Middle Ages, the tower also acted as a prison.

Maestranza Bullring: The oldest bullring in the world, the Maestranza Bullring was built in the mid-to-late 1700's. It is one of Seville's most popular tourist attractions, and is home to a world-known bullfighting festival during the Seville Fair each year.

Giralda Tower: This tower used to be a minaret, but was converted into a belltower for the Cathedral of Seville. The tower is a mix of different architectural styles.

The modern river boat offers a bar serving drinks and snacks (payable direct).
