  • Sighting tower made navigation museum that tells the metamorphosis of the Spanish fleet. Cute but small and uncomfortable.

  • We went past this on a sightseeing tour. It has a great vantage point overlooking the river and is quite good architecturally. But gold? I’m not so sure  more »

  • A few steps to get to the top but great views. Easy to find down by the river. 21 bus from railway station stops right outside. Lovely river to walk along. Great restaurants. Well worth a visit.
  • Good price for the view and an exhibition inside. It's worth the effort, but the top of the tower is interdict so you can only reach the level below. But for the price I would recommend it.
