The Cathedral

This enormous structure is like a little world on its own, and you will lose hours staring in awe at the beautiful architectural style, relics and historical curios.

With different chapels it’s the largest gothic cathedral in the world by volume and is a World Heritage site.

There are also hints of the mosque that once stood on this spot, especially in the Court of the Orange trees, where Muslims once performed ablutions.

The big photo opportunity inside is definitely from the top of the Giralda tower, but there’s something spectacular at almost every turn.
