The Torre del Oro in Seville is a watchtower located on the left bank of the Guadalquivir River, next to the bullring of the Real Maestranza. Its construction began in 1220 and was completed one year later. Archaeological and artistic studies have shown that the second part of the tower was ordered to be built by Pedro I the cruel in the mid-14th century. Finally, the cylindrical upper section, topped by a golden dome, was built in 1760 by the military engineer Sebastián Van der Borcht after the Lisbon earthquake of 1755. © iStock / MarquesPhotography
