Enjoy the experience of exploring the Royal Alcazar of Seville, as described above, with the opportunity of visiting the Catedral de Sevilla (Cathedral of Seville). Like the Alcazar, it is also, a UNESCO World Heritage site and, a MUST SEE when in the south of Spain.
This imposing house of worship was completed in the early 16th century and, thus, became the largest cathedral in the world, to this very day.
Inside, the sheer size and scale of its architecture, will leave you spellbound and at times, speechless.
Consider this, the Cathedral, sits on 253,000 square feet of land. The adjoining Giralda tower, is 343 feet high. Added to this, are riches in Christian iconography, works of art, stained glass and the tombs of famous historical figures, including Ferdinand III of Castille, Christopher Columbus and, his son, Diego. The cathedral is so large, it has 10 entrance doors.
