Book now and join us on a journey through time and beauty. We’ll start at our meeting point and head to one of the most stunning architectural complexes in the world, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. We’ll begin with a guided tour of the cathedral, passing through the Patio de los Naranjos, and end with the ascent to “La Giralda.”
The history of the Seville Cathedral
The history of the Seville Cathedral dates back to the 12th century, where it stands on the site of the old mosque, parts of which can still be seen, such as the “Puerta del Perdón”, the “Patio de los Naranjos”, and “La Giralda,” its bell tower. The Almohad heritage is also visible in the nearby towers that were part of the city’s walled enclosure, such as the Torre del Oro, the Torre de la Plata, and the Torre de Bronce.
Later, in the 13th century, it was transformed into the largest Gothic cathedral in the world and the third-largest after St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. In the 16th century, the cathedral was completed with magnificent works of the best Spanish Renaissance: The Capilla Real, the Sala del Cabildo, and the Sacristía Mayor.
The Seville Cathedral Tour
Our tour will take us through the Puerta del Perdón and into the Patio de los Naranjos, where we’ll see its original Almohad structure as a zone for ablutions and irrigation system. After crossing the geometric orange-tree forest, we’ll enter the cathedral’s interior, where we’ll take a stroll among gigantic stone columns that elevate their covers to turn it into the world’s largest Gothic temple. We’ll enjoy the outstanding Capilla Real, which houses the tombs of Ferdinand III and his son Alfonso X, the Sacristía Mayor, and the Sala del Cabildo.
We’ll walk through its aisles, immersing ourselves in its history and enjoying the art it treasures, such as the Retablo Mayor, the tomb with the remains of Christopher Columbus, and numerous paintings by Murillo, Zurbarán and Valdés Leal, among other authors.
At certain times of the year, it is possible to take a guided tour of the cathedral’s roofs.
The Giralda of Seville
No visit to Seville would be complete without seeing the Giralda. Undoubtedly the city’s most recognizable symbol and a result of the fusion of cultures, it is considered the most beautiful lookout point over the city of Seville.
Ascending its 35 easily accessible ramps brings us closer to the sky and offers spectacular views of the city, Triana – one of its most emblematic neighborhoods – and the Guadalquivir River. To visit the Giralda, you can enter with the same ticket as the cathedral.
As a final touch, don’t forget to take the best photos of the Giralda for your social media, framing your snapshot between the facades of Francos street or from Mateos Gago street, the beginning of the Santa Cruz neighborhood.
