What to Expect
Begin your tour in the Plaza del Triunfo. Meet your guide and make your way to the Seville Cathedral, with a brief tour of the building’s exterior before skipping the queue and heading inside. Listen as your guide describes the site’s extensive history, and admire the Gothic altarpiece, domed ceiling, and long nave, before visiting Christopher Columbus’ most recent resting place. Next, ascend the Giralda Tower, a former minaret under Moorish rule, and notice other city landmarks from the bell tower’s viewing platform, as your guide shares further insights. Conclude your tour back on street level, and continue your exploration of the city with a new understanding of its history and cultural influences.
