Islamic Puerta del Perdon and Christian Cathedral separated by Patio de los Naranjos orange grove.
Seville Cathedral, the biggest Gothic church in the world and the hub of the old town, was built over a 12th century mosque.
Work started in 1401 but the original 12thC minaret, the Giralda, the arch of Capilla de Granada in the courtyard of orange trees and the gateway (above) remain. This is now the visitor exit; entry is on the opposite side. Tourists can climb the Giralda for a small fee.
The longest nave in Spain.
The gigantic interior of the cathedral is not wildly stylish apart from the size and richly decorated doorways, but it encloses a large number of superbly crafted religious treasures that are included in the modest entry ticket.
One of the world's finest altarpieces in the Main Chapel by sculptor Pierre Dancart, this lifetime's work contains over 1,000 carved biblical figures.
The seriously bling Custodia de Juan de Arfe, made in the 1580s and weighing in at 475kg of pure silver, in the Sacristia Mayor.
The Sacristia de los Calices, a part of the cathedral art galleries that contain several extremely valuable paintings.
One of the intricate pieces of silverwork on show.
A little something for the humble of heart in the gold treasure chamber.
