Seville, Day 2

Day two started with a visit to church. Well, the Seville Cathedral to be exact. It’s the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world (following St. Peter’s Bascilica in The Vatican, and St. Paul’s in London). Construction took place between 1402 to 1506, and was built to demonstrate Seville’s wealth. In 1511 the dome collapsed and work had to re-commence. In 1888, it collapsed again due to an earthquake, and work was continued until completion in 1903. Today it serves as the burial site of Christopher Columbus, and includes the famous Giralda bell tower.

35 ramps and 17 steps later, we reached the top of the Giralda tower.

We didn’t have a full second day in Seville, as we had to catch our next bus, but we thoroughly enjoyed the time we had.
