Cathedral and Christopher Columbus' Tomb

Providing a compelling and eye-catching architecture unique to it's specific story, the world's fourth-largest cathedral is worth every moment spent on the grounds. It combines Moorish and Gothic architecture from its original construction in 1528 that proudly placed it as the then-largest cathedral in the world.

The Giralda still stands high above the Seville skyline at over 350 feet. Formerly the mosque's minaret, it transitioned into a bell tower when the modern cathedral was added.
