Photo: Window Architecture Bell Tower Cathedral Of Seville

The intricate architectural details of a window in the bell tower (the former minaret) at the Cathedral of Seville in Andalucia, Spain.

La Giralda, which forms part of the Cathedral of Seville, exhibits some typical Moorish architecture, such as these scalloped arches on the original section of the bell tower.

The first two thirds of the bell tower were formerly a Minaret, from the Almohad period of Seville, which was completed in 1198 in the Moorish style of architecture, while the top third was added in 1568 during the renaissance era. The mosque which was part of the bell tower (or minaret) was converted to a church after the Christians took over the city of Seville, however it was severely damaged in an earthquake in 1356. Construction of the current Cathedral of Seville was started in 1401.
