This enormous Gothic cathedral was built for one reason only to demonstrate Seville’s wealth. This 15th ventury wonder was built on the site of a 12th century mosque. The builders claimed to want to build something so opulanet that “those who saw it would call us crazy.” 80 Lavishly ornamentes chapels, high vaulted ceings, a beautiful choir, a gilded altarpiece and the tomb of Chistopher Columbus; the cathredal interior is just as impressive. The treasury is filled wth ornate pices of gold and silver. The orange tree courtyard is peaceful. Be sure to climb the 35 ramps to the clock tower for mind boggling view. We could go on and on, but simple words aren’t going to describe the experience here.

Seville Cathedral, Seville Reviews - Write a Review
From a historical perspective, the Seville Cathedral is not one of the top cathedrals in Europe, but it certainly is a fascinating place to visit. First, it was originally the location of a mosque and there are echoes of that in the architecture, most strongly in the Giralda or bell tower, which has a ramp going up almost to the top, which was used by the muezzin to ride a donkey. By the way, it's worth the walk to the top -- nice view if very crowded at the top. Second, the sheer size of the cathedral is spectacular. Moreover, there are many beautiful doors and chapels in the cathedral that are worth inspecting closely, as well as an amazingly detailed alterpiece. It also was interesting to see the tombs of several famous people, including Pedro I and Christopher Columbus. Lines are very long at some times of the day but the cathedral is worth the wait.
Amazing cathedral with a great history (Christopher Columbus was buried here- you can see his magnificent monument). There's two lines to get into the cathedral, the line in front of a round monument is faster than the other. In the cathedral, there's a mirror that allows you to take a picture of yourselves with the ceiling. And try to get to the top of the cathedral - there's not much stairs (more of a steady incline). Views along the way towards the top are beautiful too
It is very beautiful and very big. Audio guide available in many languages, and has very good information. The line to buy tickets and get in is quick if you line up before opening, but will grow very long very fast. I would recommend getting there 30 minutes before opening, when the temperature cool, and you can get an early spot in line. If you book your tickets online you can shuffle past the queue. This is a very popular spot, so the crowds are large and it might not feel like an intimate experience. But it is worth it.
Give yourself plenty of time to absorb the enormity of this holy space. It leaves one in awe. Don't forget the tower...I almost did. And there are restrooms + a drinking fountain near the restroom. I bought my ticket the night before at the affiliate church and was able to walk in. Unfortunately I didn't have the 3EU for the audioguide :/ & they do not take credit cards. Its still worth it.
Awesome looking cathedral. World's largest Gothic cathedral and 3rd largest overall I believe. Amazing architecture. Christopher Columbus' tomb with his remains is located here. Not really a tomb just 4 statues holding up his stone casket on the main area of the cathedral. The tower has nice 360 views of the city but it's quite a climb. It says 34 floors but by standards you are really only climbing 17 floors if you were in an apartment building in North America.
