The late afternoon sun gives the Seville Cathedral an almost ethereal glow. Built on the site of an Almohad Mosque, the Cathedral itself is a show of power and a monument of superlatives. Besides being the burial site of Christopher Columbus, it is also the third largest cathedral in Europe and the largest European Gothic Cathedral. Oh, and it also has one of the largest altarpieces in the world. On the right is the bell-tower Giralda, a former minaret of the mosque that was supplanted by Seville Cathedral. It has since become one of the city’s most enduring symbols.
