A must visit if you're in Seville. Tickets includes La Giralda tower climb
The cathedral is the largest Gothic Church in Europe, and when you step in you will definitely feel it. The ceilings are amazingly high, and make the church seem even bigger when you are inside. Check out the altar, which is very impressive, and unsurprisingly massive. The cathedral also is the resting place of Christopher Colombus
The Seville Cathedral (The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Sea) is one of the largest gothic buildings in the world. This is a Catholic church comprised of 80 chapels. It is filled with gold! Be sure to sit for a while to admire the elaborate choir stalls and the incredible carved wooden altarpiece. Unfortunately, photos are not allowed. Visit the tomb of Christopher Columbus and try to climb to the bell tower. If you are not up to the climb, just enjoy looking at it from outside...This is Seville's most popular landmark. A guided tour is recommended in order to study the details and get the full impact of this incredible building.
I was disappointed to learn after arriving at the Seville Cathedral as a pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago, that I would have to pay something like 7-10 Euro to enter or else be relegated to the small chapel in the front of the church to pray. Just another sign of the massive business that the Catholic church is.
Pictures don't do Seville Cathedral justice. The view of the cathedral is breathtaking in person and gives the spectator a feeling of astonishment and bewilderment all at the same time. Well at least this was my experience. Built to demonstrate Seville's wealth, the Seville Cathedral superseded the Hagia Sophia and became the largest cathedral in the world. Now it's the largest Gothic cathedral, the third-largest church in the world, and a historical and architectural marvel.
Also known as the Catedral de Santa María de la Sede, this is one of the largest, most elaborate cathedrals in the world (actually, it's the third largest globally, but it's the largest Gothic church). If you're in any of the neighborhoods nearby, it's easy to find your way around by gauging your position compared to the cathedral. And if you're in any of those neighborhoods, you know you're in some pretty historic, prime real estate. I stayed at at apartment where the cathedral was my backyard, and as beautiful a sight as it is by day, it was absolutely captivating from my terrace at night.
Definitely worth the admission, I also enjoyed the audio tour.
There was a mosque in 13rd century... There has amazing tower
