    ST. MARY CATHEDRAL

    by Lalique Updated Aug 25, 2002

    ST. MARY CATHEDRAL
    Beautiful architecture. The cathidral is about 600 years old, was build on the base of an old mosque. Inside there is a grave of Chr. Columbus, not acutally a grave but a coffin held by four statues. You should definitely climb 94 meters Giralda to see the city from a birds' fly.

    A big silver thing inside the cathedral

    Sorry, I can't remember what this is called. However, I do know that it forms the centrepiece of Seville's Easter celebrations. Huge parades run through the town, with floats and effigies of Christ and the Virgin Mary... plus this rather impressive statuette.

    The cathederal of Sevilla is breathtaking. You need at least a half day to look through it and if you climb to the top of the Giraldi, you will get the best view of Sevilla possible.
    Amongst the amazing features of the cathederal is Columbus' tomb (Well one of them, apparently there are about four in Spain and nobody knows which, if any of them, are for real. Not a bad monument though, even if it's not really him.

    Visit the Cathedral.

    The Cathedral complex was once a mosque. When the Castillians conquered Sevilla, the mosque was razed to build a cathedral. The architects/builders wanted to build it so big that future generations would think them 'madmen.' They succeeded. It's bloody huge.

    The avenue facing the cathedral is remarkable - wide, bordered by some of the most beautiful buildings in town, I think that it concentrates, all the time, half ot Sevilla's total visitors.

    In the Capitular there is an angled mirror on the floor which you can look into and see reflected the amazing domed ceiling.
