This is the one place you must visit on your trip to Sevilla,from the magnificent alters to the fabulous treasures in the treasure room.
Go first thing in the morning,they open at 11am,it cost about 11 euros.To avoid the queues as there is no cover from the sun and you could be queuing for over an hour.Give yourself at least an hour to go around it and also include going up the Giralda Tower which is included in the price.

Not being a religious person, I was left in awe as I approached this fantastic building from one of the many side streets of Seville. The entry price of 8 euros was well worth the money. Once inside I was constantly being pleasantly surprised by the structure and the art contents, and a climb up the tower is well worth the effort to view the whole of Seville. The tower has 34 levels of ramps to get to the top with the last bit being about 8 steps to get to the viewing balcony. BUT WHAT A VIEW.
Would definitely recommend a visit to the Cathedral for everybody.

Again so lucky to not have to wait long in the queue , the inside was amazing and so much to see, the trip up e tower was easy and well worth the walk, as it was just ramps and very was very way to negotiate! The coolness of the plaza outside was very welcome Nd the coffee. Shops outside the area were really good and cheap as well with good coffee!

My family and I loved the Seville Cathedral but somehow it lacked the 'wow' factor of several other cathedrals we've visited. Florence's Duomo; St. Paul's in London; Notre-Dame in Paris; these (to name but three) all had more instant - almost theatrical - impact. That said, we were all thrilled by the beauty of this building. It has many utterly unique features and the bell tower is definitely worth the climb.

I have seen a handful of impressive cathedrals and churches around Europe, but this is definitely in it's own league!

Do not miss this attraction when you are in Seville!
You will get three attractions out of this. The cathedral itself, the Giralda tower and Christopher Columbus' sarcophagus.

The cathedral itself is jawn dropping with it's enormous pillars and height inside. The decorations are fantastic, and the handcraft is so impressive. Imagine building this over 800 years ago!
A visit to the Giralda tower will really get your legs streched as there is no elevator. Walk the slope all the way up to the top. No stairs make this an easy walk.

And don't forget to pay your respects in front of Christopher Columbus' impressive sarcophagus.


Definitely worth a visit!
