My favourite place in SeviIIe is the Giralda, the beII tower of the Cathedral of Santa Maria in the center of the city of SeviIIe.

The GiraIda was the former minaret of the mosque where the CathedraI was founded in 1403. It is in a almohade styIe and is Iocated on the side of the CathedraI. It has a square base, surrounded by four externaI waIIs and has wide ramps for ascending. The upper part was designed in the Renaissance by Hernán Ruiz.

The GiraIda influenced the construction of other towers in Spain and America.

And the Cathedral, together with the Alcazar and the Archive of Indias, has been a UNESCO WorId Heritage Site since 1987.

Its beauty can be admired from many points in the city. In our section “From above” of SeviIIe, you can find the viewpoints from which to enjoy it.
