In this cultural guided tour is awaiting you the world’s largest Gothic temple ! Will be perfect visit because Seville Cathedral was also declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, along with the Palacio Real de Sevilla and the archives of India. As a tribute to its splendour, on 25 July 2010 it received the distinction of Exceptional Universal Value .
A detail to bear in mind in its history is that one of the first masters of the work was a French: the master Charles Galter, originally from Normandy (France) and the Cathedral resisted the terrible Lisbon earthquake in 1755..
Its impressive Gothic structure make it an ideal monument to visit. Reinforced by its influences from different great eras. Seven can be listed as follows: the Almohad period (1172-1248), the Mudejar period (1248-1401), the Gothic period (1401-1528), the Renaissance (1528-1593), the Baroque period (1618-1758), the so-called academic period and, finally, the important Neo-Gothic period (1825-1928).
Up to the Giralda: the best view of Seville!
Next to you and as the highlight of your visit, the sovereign and protective Giralda * protects the Cathedral’s central nave and chapels. An emblem in its own right of the Sevillian capital and even part of the belleseville.com logo, the Giralda is a precious and inspiring symbol for many artists.
Once on the roof of the Giralda, you will see that the vision of the city of Seville is unique from this point of view.
Do not forget that you can also visit the famous Patio of the Orange trees , which is now fully integrated into the Cathedral and whose main entrance bears the name of the Door of Forgiveness .
Near the door of San Cristóbal, the impressive tomb of the explorer that the Cathedral of Seville installed in 1902 is an imposing monument to the glory of Christopher Columbus. Four men carry a coffin. These four characters symbolize the kingdoms of Castile, Leon, Aragon and Navarre.
The mausoleum of Christopher Columbus is just one part of the cultural spectacle offered by our Cathedral. Its gargoyles, sculptures, torches, majestic pointed vaults that cover the choir of the temple, its high forged doors, its chapels decorated with stained glass where the paintings of Francisco de Goya and Bartolomé Murillo are memories that will remain engraved in his memory after two hours of visit.

We recommend consulting the city map a few hours before the visit to make sure you locate the meeting point and be present 10/15 minutes before the scheduled time.
Even if we minimize waiting times and enjoy a queue break, on days of celebration, high public attendance or high season, it is necessary to be patient to enter Real Alcázar because, for the good of all, Alcázar’s internal organizational and safety standards are important.
