Photo: Seville Cathedral La Giralda Sevilla Andalusia Spain

Towering above cafe patrons in Plaza Virgen de los Reyes, the famous La Giralda and the adjoining Seville Cathedral form the largest Roman Catholic cathedral in the world and are situated in the heart of the city of Sevilla, Andalusia, Spain.

Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 along with the neighbouring Alcazar and Archivo de las Indias, the Seville Cathedral was built on the site of an existing mosque between 1402 and 1506. La Giralda (bell tower of the cathedral) features a medley of architectural designs including the original two thirds which were an ancient Islamic minaret built between 1184 and 1198. The last third of the tower was added in the 16th century as a belfry extension which features a statue (Giraldillo) representing Faith.

Today, the Cathedral of Seville and particularly La Giralda is the number one tourist attraction situated in the historic medieval heart of Sevilla, Andalusia, Spain. The massive Seville Cathedral features exquisite and intricate decorations made of gold and the world's largest alter piece crafted by Pierre Dancart. The building stands to demonstrate the wealth of Seville which had become a major trading centre. ... continue below the picture...
