Torre de Don Fadrique Seville

The wonderful Don Fadrique tower (known as the “enchanted tower”) is an example of early Gothic in Seville. It is located in the Santa Clara Convent, a unique place north of the city center, with a long history of tradition, culture, art and religiosity.

The Don Fadrique tower was built in 1252 as an inscription shows at its gate. It was built in the garden of the Don Fadrique Palace, the son of King Fernando III, the conqueror of the city. The tower is quadrangular; it measures 5.40 meters on each side and is three stories high. Most of the tower is made of bricks, with minor exceptions (foundations of the ground floor, corners of the last door, and ceilings made of stone).

The Don Fadrique tower is surrounded by a beautiful garden created by architect Juan Talavera. (He also built the inner staircase of the tower). The garden is crowned by a rectangular pool of water, which should emphasize the tower in perspective.

Location: Compás del Convento de Santa Clara. Calle Becas, s / n – 41002 Seville
