Seville Cathedral

Local name: Catedral de Sevilla

The Gothic cathedral in Seville is a Roman Catholic church dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1987. When visiting the cathedral, it is worth paying attention to the cross made in 1603 by Juan Martínez Montañés, who is in the chapel of Saint Andrew. In the church you can see a richly decorated presbytery, the largest altar in Spain, side chapels and sculptures and paintings depicting biblical scenes and figures of saints.

In the cathedral there are crypts of Christopher Columbus and his son and Ferdinand III, Alfonso the Wise and Piotr Okrutny. The only son of Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon was baptized there. The church was built on the remains of an originally Muslim mosque existing in this place. Visible traces of this building are the Giralda bell tower and patio. The temple was built in the years 1401-1506.
