Castillo de Alcalá de Guadaíra

Seville enchants

The Tower of Gold is a 13th century defensive tower from which a thick chain extended to the other side of the river to cut off enemy ships.

The Tower of Silver, with an octagonal floor plan, was built in the 13th century by the Almohads and was part of the walls that surrounded the town. It was the end of the walled enclosure and was annexed by a wall to the Tower of Gold.

This church combines the Islamic building tradition with the Gothic art provided by the Christian conquerors who came from Castile. The main façade dates back to the second half of the 13th century, with an exceptional stone doorway made up of a pointed arch with archivolts and battens.

The Hins-Alfaray Walls are some of the most important remains of the Moorish town that was built in this area in the 12th century, during the Almohad period. It was a fortified enclosure, a ring of walls surrounding the main watchtower that served to defend the settlement. 

The Castle is a Muslim defensive construction located next to 7 km milestone on the SE-140 motorway from Peñaflor to La Puebla de los Infantes. However, chronologically speaking, it belongs to the 12th century Almohad period. 

The Torre del Agua Archaeological Museum contains one of the most precious examples of the heritage and cultural legacy of the civilisations that inhabited Osuna.
