Seville`s Cathedral

Seville

The Cathedral of Seville, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, is a Catholic cathedral located in the city of Seville, Andalusia, Spain.

It is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world.

The cathedral was built in the 15th century on the site of a former mosque, which was partially demolished to make way for the new cathedral. The cathedral is famous for its impressive Gothic architecture, particularly its Giralda tower, which was originally built as a minaret during the Islamic rule of Spain.

Inside the cathedral, visitors can explore the nave, chapels, and sacristy, which are adorned with beautiful artwork, sculptures, and altarpieces. The cathedral also houses the tomb of Christopher Columbus, who is believed to have been buried there in 1506.

One of the highlights of the cathedral is the Giralda tower, which offers stunning views of the city from its observation deck. The tower is accessible by a series of ramps instead of stairs, as it was originally built for use as a minaret, which required the muezzin to climb to the top five times a day to call the faithful to prayer.
