The biggest tourist attraction in Seville is its huge Gothic cathedral together with the exhibition tower Giraldou – a former minaret and the current bell tower. There is also an interesting tombstone of Christopher Columbus. Although entrance is charged, be sure not to be discouraged and walk through this architectural gem.

Fountain in front of Girald

The beginning of the tour of the cathedral begins in the square with the fountain directly below the breathtaking Giralda tower. Here, it is almost always crowded with tourists and carriages.

Cathedral from the south

However, the entrance to the cathedral is from the south, from Plaza del Triunfo (directly opposite the Royal Alcazar or the Indian Archives General de Indias). From here there is also the best view.
