You cannot miss these symbols that characterize the very essence of Seville such as the cathedral: This monument, initially Islamic, was a mosque during the Almohad era before being converted into a powerful and imposing cathedral. With its unique character, it now towers over the city. Its impressive central nave rises to 42 meters and even the side chapels seem quite large.

The Giralda, the mosque’s former minaret, is now used as the cathedral’s bell tower. At a height of 100 meters, it dominates the city and offers a stunning view of the Andalusian capital. If this sight is beyond what one can imagine, many steps await you before you can enjoy the panorama but one thing is certain: if there is comfort after effort; it awaits you up there on the Giralda. The cathedral is one of the three largest churches in Europe after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The gardens, where a curious mix of different gardening styles (Arabic, French, and Renaissance) can be admired, and should not be missed.
