It's a steady gradient ramp of 34 flights to the top where there are a dozen steps. It's worth it for the 360 view and sight of the cathedral roof. If you can, time it for the hourly bell - there's only one or so and not deafening, just atmospheric. On the way up, to catch your breath, there are... More

We climbed the 36 stories via a ramp to the top of the tower. Easy walk up with plenty of stopping places. Fabulous views from the top. Go early morning g to avoid queues if you want to combine with a visit to the csthedral

Go from 2pm as the tours had left and were on their way to lunch. What a climb but worth it. On some of the slopes they have converted spaces into mini museums which give you a rest, also various windows have recessed areas to stop. parents used their push chairs.

This was a highlight of our time in Seville - it was great fun climbing up the 36 ramps (made for horses to run up the tower) to the top. Along the way, they have cleverly and strategically placed artifacts to see....this means that the interested (or the weary) can stop and see elements of the original tower and also... More

Climbing 330 feet up isn't as bad as it sounds as the ramps (originally used by horsemen to get to the top for the five-time daily call to prayer for Muslims) make the climb gradual. The 360 degree view is worth every step. Be careful to cover your ears when the numerous bells toll. Deafening!

A mix of Christian and Moslem, the minaret serving as the bell tower of Seville Cathedral. Catch the view of the bell tower at sunset from across the terrace of Hotel Eme.

Part of the Cathedral do go up - apart from c20 steps at the end it's ramps all the way up so easy to do. View from the top is worth the effort.

thirty odd ramps instead of all steps, which is refreshing. See the city from the top, its fabulous to look onto all those lovely rooftop gardens and swimming pools! And it doesn't take too long to come down again!

Ramps all the way so does not feel like a climb. 1 flight of steps at the top. Fantastic views of all of Seville

It's worth doing because it's part of the cathedral's entrance fee, but you can get similar skyline views from other site. But what disappoints are the bars once you get to the top as they diminish the views & photo angles. The walk up is fairly easy if your half fit, but it can get a little crowded going up/down...
