La Giralda tower


Description

The Giralda is the belfry of Seville Cathedral. The large tower was part of the old Mosque over which the cathedral was built. It is one of the most visited buildings in the city. It was used in the past the call people to prayer. The faithful would enter through the belfry ramps that allowed entry on horseback. You can head up these ramps to the highest point and get a great panoramic view over the city of Seville on your visit. You can also take a few snaps from the windows dotted along the path to the top. The 96 metres from pavement to the bronze rotating statue on the top of the tower certainly stand out. The statue works as a weathervane and is known as the ‘Giraldillo'. It is said that the Giralda has a twin tower located in Marrakech.
