Seville Cathedral: Top 5 architectural highlights

Seville's preeminent attraction, the Seville Cathedral, is the third-largest church in the world. A sublime specimen of Gothic architecture with a fascinating history, the cathedral is a formidable human achievement that will certainly take your breath away.



The cathedral's famous bell tower, called Giralda, was originally built as a minaret in the late 12th century. The stunning, 105-meter-tall tower is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A really fun way to get to know the city

A really fun way to get to know the city... Since it was the middle of January, it was totally off-season and I was the only person booked for the tour. My guide was knowledgeable, fun, interesting, animated and entertaining... everything I could’ve asked for. Time is spent in teaching you how to use the Segway and the tour begins and you are comfortable and demonstrate that you can control the Cyclie.
