Seville Cathedral

Spain > Seville

The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See

This outstanding structure right in the heart of Sevilla is the largest cathedral in the world. The building was completed late in the 16th century - almost 200 years after construction started on the site of the Almohad Mosque. Much like many cities in Andalucia, Seville's history is a complex mix of Muslim and Christian rulers leading to a unique cultural heritage. Cathedrals and Mosques often took far longer to build than either religion was in charge leading to constant reconstructions of churches into mosques and vice versa.

There are several interesting parts of the cathedral worth paying attention to. As well as the burial site of several prominent Spanish Kings, Christopher Columbus's grave is also inside the building. The Giralda is one of the world's most famous bell towers towering 105 metres above the ground. A converted minaret, the Spanish decided that the best way to get to the top of a really tall tower is to ride to the top on top of a horse and built a ramp all the way instead of putting in steps. Once you've made your way to the bells at the top, the views of the city are astounding.
