Full description
The Seville Cathedral (Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See), the largest Gothic cathedral in the world, is located in the center of the city. Stand in awe of its sheer scale and beauty before visiting the interior with a guided visit and skip-the-line entrance. Enjoy a 1-hour tour in Seville's historical district next to Alcazar in Barrio Santo Cruz, the old Jewish quarter.

On this tour your guide will tell you about the transition from Islamic mosque to Christian church, and the continuous remodelling of the cathedral over the years, making it truly one of a kind.

It was built on the site of a 12th century Almohad mosque, decorative parts of which still can be seen inside the cathedral. A special part of the mosque that remains is the minaret standing next to it, now known as the Giralda Tower, a wonderful viewpoint to look over the city.

There were 2 parts of the mosque preserved in the cathedral: the Moorish entrance court (Patio de los Naranjos) and the Giralda, originally a minaret, converted into a bell tower.

The cathedral is entered via the Puerta de San Cristóbal on the south side. Just inside you’ll see the tomb of Christopher Columbus. The vast interior of the cathedral, featuring a central nave and 4 side aisles, is lavishly decorated with works of fine art.
