"The Cathedral" Cathedral Tip by bambino36

Cathedral, Sevilla: 144 reviews and 296 photos

  Cathedral, Sevilla
by bambino36
 
 

Rising up on the historical center, next to the jewish quarter (Barrio de Santa Cruz), the magnificent cathedral is the third largest in the world, only surpassed by the St. Peter Basilic, in Rome, and St Paul in London.
The Cathedral is surprising for it's dimensions and for the details sculpted on the stone.
It was built in 1401, in gothic style, where once was an arab temple.
In this building everything is an excess: in the main altar there are more than a thousand figures representing the life of Christ and the impressive organ has 6700 tubes.
