Great value

The awe-inspiring Catedral de Santa Maria de la Sede, as it is officially known, is one of the world’s largest Gothic cathedrals. Erected in 1502, it rests atop the foundations of an ancient Mosque whose striking minaret watchtower, the Giralda, still stands. Take your time studying the exterior for intricate signs of Seville’s rich history. Inside, treasures include what is believed to be Columbus’s tomb and priceless paintings from Spanish greats Zurbarán and Murillo. Stroll the fragrant orange blossom lined patio and climb the tower for fantastic views over the square. Reserve on Mondays between 4.30 p.m. and 6 p.m. for a free audiovisual guide.
