The Cathedral Of Seville # 10
Photograph - Photographs
Nothing prepares visitors for the astounding sight of the Seville Cathedral. This glorious monument is Christendom's largest church of Gothic style and the third-largest when compared to the Neoclassical Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City and Saint Paul's Cathedral in London. Seville's cathedral awes visitors with its sheer size and Gothic splendor. Its interior could easily fit a football stadium, and the 30-meter-tall main altarpiece is gilded with the finest gold brought back from the New World during the age of Christopher Columbus.
A symbol of the Christian Reconquest over the Moors, the cathedral was constructed between 1401 and 1506 on the site of the town's 12th-century Great Mosque. The cathedral has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, reflecting its cultural and historic importance. Visitors could spend a few hours discovering the grandiose sanctuary, the chapels adorned with masterpieces of Spanish painting, and the treasury containing precious religious objects. A highlight is the Giralda Tower, which affords sensational panoramic views of the city.
Here we see the soaring Gothic structure and one of the stained glass windows.
