Seville Cathedral, Seville

4.7
One of the largest Gothic churches in the world, Seville Cathedral is the final resting place of Christopher Columbus and a World Heritage Site. The awe-inspiring cathedral is 126 m (413 ft) long and 83 m (272 ft) wide, built on the site of a former mosque. The mosque’s minaret, now serving as a converted bell tower, still stands right next to the cathedral. Climb up this emblematic tower for sweeping views of Seville, or tour the interior to see the longest nave of any cathedral in the country. Inside the main body of the cathedral, the most noticeable features are the choir lofts and the carved scenes from the life of Christ. A single craftsman, Pierre Dancart, spent his entire life completing the work on the richly detailed altarpiece, considered one of the finest in the world.

  • A jaw-droppingly gorgeous building. Everything you would expect from the world's largest Gothic cathedral. You even get to climb the 343 foot campanile at no extra cost. As students, we only paid €4 each for our admission and truly felt like we got so much for our money. An amazing experience.
  • Very beautiful cathedral! The structure is impressive. The visit itself can easily take up more than two hours considering how much there is to see. You can reserve tickets online in order to avoid the queue. Make sure you check the opening times as they change depending on the day of the week. Skip the audio guide - was not useful.
  • I did the rooftop tour with my boyfriend and we enjoyed every minute. Such an incredible experience walking on the roof of a cathedral and watching the painted windows from nearby. You start appreciating the small details more when you get to take a look closer at how a cathedral is build and decorated. The tour guide was a nice and funny guy! Also you get an amazing view over Seville.
  • One of the must see sites in Seville - take a free working tour to learn more about the building before you visit inside. An Audio guide at 3 euros is well worth it and will explain more about areas and artworks in the church. Recommend climbing up the bell tower to experience the views (its a slope rather than stairs which helps!).
  • Ya desde fuera te das cuenta de que es gigantesca. Es la Catedral de estilo gótico más grande del mundo por superficie. Dentro es realmente impresionante, repleta de pinturas y verdaderos tesoros. Impresiona bastante el altar mayor, además del coro y los órganos. En las distintas capillas se pueden apreciar verdaderas obras de arte, en pintura y escultura. La entrada cuesta 9 € e incluye la subida a La Giralda, más que recomendable es coger las entradas por Internet y te ahorras la cola, que es bastante larga y con el sol que hace ya es.
