seville cathedral
Seville Cathedral

Also known as Santa Maria de la Sede, the Seville Cathedral is said to be the largest and most-awe inspiring Gothic-influence cathedral in the world.  Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it took about 100 years to complete construction! The landmark’s architecture, influenced by a combination of Moorish, Renaissance and Gothic design, is elaborate in every sense. The detailed stonework on the exteriors, the spires in particular, are dedicated to Christian saints. If the exteriors weren’t impressive enough, the interiors are absolutely mesmerizing. The highlight is the altar, that features intricate woodwork depicting various times from the life of Christ, along with the beautiful dome.

la giralda
La Giralda

La Giralda, Seville’s bell tower, is a sight to behold. Towering over every part of Seville, a visit to the top brings to you a spectacular bird’s eye view of the city’s landscape, including landmarks like the Alcázar. The tower was earlier a minaret of Seville’s main mosque, way back during the rule of the Almohad Dynasty in the 1100s. With time, the minar faced destruction and damage and was finally re-constructed over 73 years, completed sometime in the 1500s. La Giralda is a beautiful representation of classic Baroque and Gothic architectural styles, a highlight being the shadows created by the ornate block and brick patterns across the tower, and the iconic weathervane situated right at the top.
