Seville Cathedral was built to demonstrate the city‘s wealth, as it had become a major center in the years after the “Reconquista“ in 1248. In 1401, city leaders decided to build a new cathedral to replace the great mosque that served as the cathedral until then. This resulted in the staggering cathedral you see today, officially known as the Catedral de Santa María de la Sede.
Learn about the origin of the complex as an Arabic mosque, and see further evidence in the ablutions courtyard. It’s one of the world’s largest churches with notable works by Zurbaran, Murillo, Goya, and others.
Afterward, you can climb the Giralda Tower for sweeping views of the city of Seville. Enjoy this tour with us.
