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.

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).
