Giralda & Santa María de la Sede

A Certain Slant of Light Photography

After the series of black and whites, we move on to Seville, the Capital of Andalusia. Featured today is the Seville Cathedral, which is built on the site of a former Almohad Mosque and 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. Accompanying it 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.
