La CatedralThe arches of La Catedral, Sevilla’s immense cathedral, reach 94 meters, which has been admired since its inception by the Moors in 1184 (1). The Gothic-style church was completed in 1507 and measures as one of the largest cathedrals in the world (2).

La Girlada is the most impressive feature of the cathedral, which also claims to house the tomb of Christopher Columbus. The 90-meter, Moorish-style tower on the northeastern side of the cathedral is Sevilla’s trademark. La Giralda can easily be climbed by a series of ramps for a spectacular view of the city below (2).
