The Cathedral in Seville is the third largest church in Europe (behind St. Peter’s in Rome and St. Paul’s in London) and the largest Gothic building in Europe.
Dimly lit and with flash photography not being allowed, it’s hard to shoot. Even then, it’s hard to capture the sheer immensity of this structure.
The cathedral houses one thing I was glad to be able to capture, the Tomb Of Christopher Columbus
That thing is magnificent! Even if there’s no actual proof that the remains of Christopher Columbus actually reside in the monument…
Some parts of the cathedral are grim and gloomy
While others are a bit more bright and hopeful
There was one thing Cynthia kept going on and on about and that was climbing the The Giralda which is the bell tower of the cathedral. At 320 feet, it’s daunting to consider for old fogies like ourselves
Fortunately it a series of ramps leading to the top rather than many, many tiny little stone steps as I recall was the case in the York Minster when we climbed that years ago.
The climb is worth it, though. Just for the view
We’re resting now. Tomorrow there is talk of taking the train to Cordoba
