Cathedral and Archivo de Indias – Seville

 

Seville Cathedral was built to demonstrate the city’s wealth, as it had become a major trading center in the 15th-16th Century. In July 1401 it was decided to build a new cathedral. “Let us build a church so beautiful and so grand that those who see it finished will think we are mad”

The Cathedral of Seville has 15 doors on its four facades and 80 chapels, 81 stain glasses and the largest Altarpiece in the world.

Daily at 2,30pm you can enjoy a guided tour with official guides  and you will know this and much more!
