The Catedral de Sevilla, which is located in Seville, is a World Heritage Site that was listed by UNESCO in 1987 and provides access to the city's extensive artistic history. A Moorish mosque was built by the Almohads where the Cathedral of Seville presently stands.

When the Moors were expelled in the 13th century, the mosque was destroyed, and it was later turned into a church. The Giralda is the name of the bell tower in Seville's Cathedral. One of Europe's oldest gardens, the Court of Oranges, is located inside the church.

The cathedral is completed by the 43 m high, 83 m wide, and 127 m long Gothic portion alone. You can have a great time learning about the 'golden age of Spanish' with your visit to the Catedral de Sevilla.

Islamic culture, years of church rule, royal authority, and the trading power attained by Spain's acquisitions in the New World are all mixed here. Large gardens that have been built and rebuilt from the Middle Ages to the Present are also accessible to visitors. You can climb the 104-meter-tall Giralda Tower during your tour for a stunning view of the city's core.

Highlights of Catedral de Sevilla:

  • Enjoy the 19th-century architecture of the Catedral de Sevilla, which includes the church, the Ambassador's Room, the Patio of the Maidens, and the English gardens.

The Catedral de Sevilla is one of the most culturally significant architectural jewels in all of Spain and has been a major draw for tourists for hundreds of years. The structure draws from several unique cultures and eras and stands as a symbol of both unity and co-existence between them.
