Visit to Seville Cathedral
The construction was carried out after the demolition of the old Mosque of Aljama in Seville. The minaret, the current Giralda and its famous Patio de los Naranjos are preserved from the original construction. It is located next to the Archives of the Indies, the Reales Alcázares and the famous Bairro de Santa Cruz.
For more than 150 years, Christians used the Muslim temple as a center of worship and it was in 1401 when the cathedral council decided to build a new temple. The works lasted until the 15th century, until 1506. According to tradition, the canons wanted to make a church so big “that whoever saw it finished would drive us crazy”.
In the Renaissance era, several outbuildings attached to the Gothic temple were rebuilt, such as the Sacristy, the Chapter House or the Royal Chapel.
