One of the largest Gothic churches in the world, Catedral de Sevilla is the final resting place of Christopher Columbus and a World Heritage Site. The awe-inspiring cathedral is 126 m (413 ft) long and 83 m (272 ft) wide, built on the site of a former mosque. The mosque’s minaret, now serving as a converted bell tower, still stands right next to the cathedral. Climb up this emblematic tower for sweeping views of Seville, or tour the interior to see the longest nave of any cathedral in the country. Inside the main body of the cathedral, the most noticeable features are the choir lofts and the carved scenes from the life of Christ. A single craftsman, Pierre Dancart, spent his entire life completing the work on the richly detailed altarpiece, considered one of the finest in the world.

Catedral de Sevilla Reviews
Es la catedral católica más grande del mundo, pues San Pedro del Vaticano no es catedral y San Pablo de Londres no es católica. En ella están los restos de Cristóbal Colón, en alto, no en tierra para ... more »It is the largest Catholic cathedral in the world, as St. Peter of the Vatican is not a cathedral and St. Paul of London is not Catholic. In it are the remains of Christopher Columbus, high, not on land to satisfy his desire not to be buried in Spain. There are Masses at 9:00 in the Old Chapel and at 10:00 in the Main Chapel. Then the services go to the parish of the Sagrario, to allow sightseeing. Do not stop climbing the Giralda, from it sees Seville whole.
Immensa...la terza chiesa più grande al mondo, imponente ed in stile gotico. Dalla sua torre è possibile vedere una panoramica di Siviglia more »Immense... the third largest church in the world, imposing and Gothic in style. From its tower you can see an overview of Seville
Spectacular cathedral. Biggest church in the world by cubic feet. Altar is the largest ever built, and covered with ornate carvings and gold. The final resting place of Christopher Columbus is in the cathedral and his coffin is breathtaking. The building is a combination of Gothic and renaissance influences. Can also climb up the tower which has a series of ramps. I passed but understand the view at the top is great. I bought the audio guide and found it useful, although it is so comprehensive that I would suggest you go to the sights you find interesting and then type in the appropriate number to get info on what is before you. Otherwise plan for at least 2 hours to get through. Make sure not to miss the Chapter House in one of the corners of the Cathedral. Easy to miss, but don't miss it. If the Illuminati exist, this is the kind of room I would imagine they meet in.
One of the world's great buildings. Built almost continuously for almost a thousand years it is today undergoing major restoration. The mix of Moorish and Christian architecture and the evolution over eight centuries of the latter are all visible. A great pile of stones with infinite stories to tell the thoughtful observer. Great hubris and its resulting great art, each ages' greatest aesthetic ambitions, are all in evidence here.
