Source

The Torre del Oro in Seville (Tower of Gold) is an albarrana tower, a dodecagonal military watchtower, located on the left bank of the rio-guadalquivir, in Seville. Its height is 36 meters and it was erected by the Almohad Caliphate in order to control access to Seville via the river. The tower has three bodies or levels.The first level, dodecagonal, was built in 1220 by order of the Almohad governor. The second level, also dodecagonal, was built by Peter of Castile in the 14th century. The third level, circular in shape was added after the previous third level, Almohad, was damaged by the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.
