The Torre de la Plata or Tower of Silver is an octagonal military tower in Al-Andalus, located in present-day Seville, southern Spain. It was constructed by the Almohad Caliphate and dates from the thirteenth century. It was linked by the city walls to another Moorish fortification, the Torre del Oro. During the time of Alfonso X’s, the tower was known as the Tower of the Azacanes.

The entrance of this tower is situated via a corridor of the city wall.

If you are standing in front of the Torre de Plata, you will see some remaining of the wall that connected the two towers to defend the city.
