Cathedral – Giralda

Seville boasts a fascinating trio of treasures formed by the Cathedral, the Alcázar and the Archivo de Indias, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its Gothic-style cathedral, built on a former Almohad mosque, is one of the largest cathedrals in the whole world. Soaring into the sky beside it is the Giralda, the magnificent minaret of the mosque and the symbol of modern-day Seville. And nestled between them is the stunning Patio de los Naranjos courtyard.
