Reviews about Seville Cathedral

Reviewed on Jun 6, 2020

塞維利亞大教堂是塞維利亞最著名的建築,是與梵蒂岡聖彼得大教堂、倫敦聖保羅大教堂齊名的世界三大教堂之一。教堂的所在地原是一座塞維利亞大清真寺,后被改建為哥特式風格的天主教堂,歷經一個世紀的時間才完成,十分雄偉壯觀。塞維利亞大教堂內還存放着哥倫布的靈柩及其紀念像,由卡斯蒂利亞、萊昂、納瓦拉、阿拉貢四位國王騎士雕像扛起。吉拉爾達塔也是塞維利亞大教堂的亮點之一,為當摩爾人統治時建造的清真寺塔樓,高98米,沿着略為陡峭的樓梯登至塔頂可一覽塞維利亞城風光。

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.
