La Torre del Oro.




La hermana pequeña de la Giralda es la Torre del Oro.
Un torreón almohade junto a la orilla del Río Guadalquivir que formaba parte de las murallas de la ciudad. Se ha terminado su restauración hace pocos meses y ha quedado brillante como su historia. Ha sido torreón defensivo, capilla religiosa, prisión y actualmente es Museo Naval. Pero todo el mundo la conoce por su cuerpo exterior, bajo y ancho, cuerpo que se refleja en las ondas del agua del Guadalquivir en tonos color oro.

The younger sister of the Giralda Tower is the Gold Tower.
The almohad tower, next to the banks of the Guadalquivir River, was part of the city walls. Its restoration was completed a few months ago and has been so brilliant as its history. He was a defensive tower, chapel religious, prison, and actually is a Naval Museum. But everyone knows it because the exterior apparience, a low and wide body, that is reflected in the water waves of the river like a golden jewellery.

  1. Hey, thanks for the English translation Juan! Not just convenient, but will also allow me to learn to read Spanish a little better by reading both texts. Kind regards.

  2. I think it's beautiful and I'm glad it was restored. I hope that you'll treat us to a photo of its reflection in the river one of these days.
