As the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, Seville Cathedral exemplifies the immense scale, splendor, and ornate craftsmanship of this architectural style at its peak. Walking inside, I was awestruck by the grand proportions and lavish detailing from carved choir stalls to golden altarpieces everywhere I turned. Highlights like Christopher Columbus’s tomb and the elaborate 15th century altarpiece soaring 45 meters tall impressed this culture vulture. Climbing the cathedral’s iconic Giralda bell tower, built as a minaret in the Moorish period, gave amazing views over Seville’s sea of historic rooftops. This Gothic masterpiece undoubtedly deserves a spot on any top 10 things to do in Seville list.
