Seville is one of our favorite destinations. To visit its Cathedral is to go back in time through no less than five architectural styles: Gothic, Neo-Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Academic.

And you will be in for a treat as you discover the Cathedral’s numerous treasures, such as the tomb of the explorer Christopher Columbus, decorated with marble and gold, located to the right of the entrance, under the Door of the Princes. And get ready to be amazed by the huge altarpiece, 20 meters wide and 27.80 meters high, composed of more than a million sculptures representing scenes from the Old and New Testaments.
