Seville is the capital of the Andalusia community in Spain, a city where Catholic and Moorish influences exist side by side. Churches and monuments dot the city like mushrooms after a rain, courtesy of prosperous times in the 16th to 17th century. Today, it is a vibrant city full of color and life, where everything just seems brighter. At its heart, the old city is meant for walking, and it is really easy to lose yourself in this Andalusia beauty.
A huge retable (Capilla Mayor) which depicts 36 scenes from the Old Testament and the life of Chris. This piece of art took over 40 years in the making!
A burst of color to the other ochre interior.
A gothic looking interior wall flanked by sculptures of trumpeting angels.
Beautiful arches, alternating between dark and light.
Stained glass window and detailed masonry work.
A closer look at the Capilla Mayor. There are over 30 biblical scenes depicted here. Not easy to see the details from far away!
High arches, vaulted ceilings amidst a warm yellow hue – even the interior looks gothic.
The huge organ of the cathedral. Performances are still being conducted here.
The choir room. The stalls look appropriately gothic as well.
Ornate ceiling, Spain.
Great and colourful photos!
