Cathedral de Seville is a famous religious attraction in Seville, the capital city of Andalusia in southern Spain. It ranks third in Europe after St. Peter's Cathedral in Rome and Milan Cathedral in Italy. In 1987, it was declared World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Seville Cathedral was originally located in the Great Mosque of Seville. In the 15th century, the mosque was demolished and the Seville Cathedral was built on the original site. Giralda, a 98-metre-high mosque minaret, was converted into a church bell tower in the 16th century, so on the facade of the tower, you can see not only the Arab-style grid decoration and horseshoe windows, but also the Renaissance-style bell tower. The sculpture on the top of the tower is called El Giraldillo, which stands for belief. Seville Cathedral is composed of five Gothic halls, which are connected by crossroads. The walls with many pointed pillars on the top of the walls surround the spires on the roof. The main entrance of the cathedral is facing the King's Saint Lady Square. There are five main halls (36 meters high) whose main body is a rectangular building 116 meters long and 76 meters wide. The highest cross is 40 meters high. There are three gates in the church: the main gate is the prince's gate, and the rest are the baptism gate and the Asuncion gate. Columbus's coffin was transported from Cuba to Spain in 1898 and buried in the church's Columbus tomb. Visiting the cathedral is free, climbing towers and visiting Columbus's tomb are free. It takes about half a day to visit the whole cathedral.
