Photo: Tourist Attraction La Giralda Seville Cathedral Santa Cruz Sevilla Andalusia Spain

La Giralda tower attached to the Seville Cathedral is lit up at dusk, and can be seen in full view from the balcony of the Banos Arabes, the Arab Baths. The Cathedral is located in the Santa Cruz district in Sevilla, Andalusia, Spain.

The Seville Cathedral and the La Giralda Tower, both lit up here at dusk, are recognizable tourist attractions in the city of Sevilla. The tower especially dominates the skyline of the city. La Giralda Tower, is one of only three remaining Almohad minarets (tall spires that are attached to Islamic mosques) in the world. The others are in Marrakesh and Morocco. The tower, which was first built in 1184 and took twelve years to complete, became the bell tower for the Seville Cathedral, of which construction began in 1401.

The top of the original tower was destroyed in an earthquake in 1356, and after the tower was adapted to serve as the bell tower for the cathedral, four more levels were added at the top for the belfry. At the very top of the tower is an Italian bronze statue of 'Faith'.

The baths sit on the site of some original Arab Baths. As you can see, the balcony affords a spectacular view of the city.
