Interesting Historical Sights in Seville
The most visited attraction in the ancient city of Seville is the Alcazar, a medieval palace that demonstrates the incredible beauty of architecture that combines Spanish Christian and Moorish influences. The Royal Palace of Alcazar is incredible, with intricate and ornate decorations and spectacular gardens. Beside the Alcazar is the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, also simply called the Cathedral of Seville, which is an imposing Gothic structure completed in 1507. Like many of the historic buildings in Seville, it was converted from a Muslim building to a Christian building, originally a mosque that was reconstructed on a grand scale to demonstrate the wealth of Seville. Giralda is the bell tower on the church, standing 343 feet high with four gilt bronze balls and a statue on top called "El Giraldillo."
