Designed by Sevillian architect Anibal Gonzalez, it includes all the historic architectural styles in a large semi-circular space with a radius of 100 meters. The building is located on the edge of the radius and has large logia on the ground floor and has a tower on either end; all made of red brick. In front of it, there is a large semi-circular pond which is crisscrossed by several small bridges. Next to the facade, there are several benches which are noteworthy because they have tiles and on the back are the coats of arms of the Spanish provinces.
Cathedral and the Giralda Tower
Especially in this excursion, we will visit the Cathedral of Saint Mary of Seville which was finished in 1528 and which is the largest Gothic Christian Cathedral of the world.
It is located on the ancient site of the Great Mosque of the Twelfth century and still has its main tower or “alminar” which is known today as the Giralda , and the Orange Patio , which at that time was used as a place where people would clean themselves to be purified before they prayed.
Inside there are over eighty stained glass windows which adorn and beautify it, letting light in with tonalities that create an atmosphere of peace and serenity.
The Cathedral is held up by enormous columns and a central vault that is 56 meters high. The entire site is enriched by many beautifully finished chapels with works by painters of the Seville Style and among others, we will see the tomb of Christopher Columbus or that of Alphonse X the Wise and Ferdinand III the Saint among other relevant personalities of historic importance.
The Treasure of the Cathedral is impressive with religious ítems made of mother of pearl, gold and silver, works by Juan de Mesa, paintings by Murillo or Zurbarán, the Grand Silver Custody made by Juan de Arfe, which are outstanding elements for any visitor to see. However, the most recognizable symbol and which is found next to the Cathedral is the Giralda tower and its belfry.
