Стоящая на берегу Гвадалквивира Torre del oro (Золотая башня) получила по преданию свое название не только из-за золотистого оттенка камня, из которого она сложена, но и оттого, что в ней хранилось золото, привезенное из далекой Америки.

The Torre del Oro (Tower of Gold) is where the gold and silver, extracted from the New World was brought to Spain and stored here at the Torre del Oro. At one time this 12th century tower was lined with gold tiles, but those disappeared a long time ago. If in Seville, you should go down to the shores of the Rio Guadalquivir, and visit the restored tower that is now home to the Museo Nautico.

The Torre del Oro was built in the 13th century as part of the fortifications of Seville during the Almohad Caliphate. The tower was intended to defend the city's port, to cut off access to the city from the Guadalquivir, and to prevent enemy movement along the bank of the river. A leisurely, late evening stroll along the Guadalquivir from the Torre del Oro to the Puente Isabel II is the highlight of any Seville stay.
