Sanlucar de Barrameda, located directly at the mouth of the Guadalquivir, in turn, served as a water gate in Seville. The river here is wide, it is easy to enter, and the low rocky southern tip of the mouth provides some protection from the southerly winds. Once at the bar, which today holds back the river, you find yourself in a quiet place with a sandy beach, facilitating landing. But the main attraction for the young Cortes was to be herself Sevilla - port, centered around the Torre del Oro, a squat round tower. This is almost all that remains of the old city walls at the point of closest approach to the river. Here, on a dark sandy beach, which came from India court discharged ashore prey on oiled fat logs. On the docks crowded sailors, merchants, adventurers and monks, there towered piles goods made to sail ships and that much more excited imagination, goods from ships arriving - exotic flavor of the new world.
