One of the largest Gothic churches in the world, Catedral de Sevilla is the final resting place of Christopher Columbus and a World Heritage Site. The awe-inspiring cathedral is 126 m (413 ft) long and 83 m (272 ft) wide, built on the site of a former mosque. The mosque’s minaret, now serving as a converted bell tower, still stands right next to the cathedral. Climb up this emblematic tower for sweeping views of Seville, or tour the interior to see the longest nave of any cathedral in the country. Inside the main body of the cathedral, the most noticeable features are the choir lofts and the carved scenes from the life of Christ. A single craftsman, Pierre Dancart, spent his entire life completing the work on the richly detailed altarpiece, considered one of the finest in the world.

  • Stunning landmark and beautiful piece of human history! The architecture is absolutely breathtaking from the outside, alone. The interior is another mesmerizing experience, from the tall Spanish thresholds to the stained glass. I have so much respect for the architects of this time period. I hope to see sites like this preserved for as long as possible. Sadly, many of the locals take world heritage sites like these granted, and even vandalize them with graffiti and litter.
  • Absolutely magnificent! Incredible detail in everything you look at. You need a good couple of hours minimum to really take it all in. If you are into the history of the church and the many religious that have ruled in the cathedral then you will be fascinated. Even if you aren't into history you still need to see this amazingly beautiful cathedral. It will take your breath away.
