The palace is renowned as one of the most beautiful in Spain, being regarded as one of the most outstanding examples of mudéjar architecture found on the Iberian Peninsula. It is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe, and was registered in 1987 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, along with the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies.
The Golden Tower
Constructed in the first third of the 13th century, The Torre del Oro (English: "Tower of Gold"), a dodecagonal military watchtower built by the Almohad dynasty, served as a prison during the Middle Ages. Its name comes from the golden shine it projected on the river, due to its building materials (a mixture of mortar, lime and pressed hay).
Triana is a neighbourhood and administrative district on the west bank of the Guadalquivir River which has a traditional pottery and tile industry, a vibrant flamenco culture, and its own festivals; it has played an important role in the development of Sevillan culture and tradition.
