Tour Seville’s Cathedral & Alcázar

The courtyard of the Alcázar of Seville
Learn about Seville's rich history and cultural heritage on a tour of the Cathedral and Alcázar. No trip to Seville is complete without visiting the iconic sights of the centuries-old Moorish Palaces in the Alcázar, nor Seville's Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. 

Start at the Seville Cathedral, a 15th-century Roman-Catholic church that's home to the tomb of Christopher Columbus. Next, you'll climb the looming bell tower known as La Giralda and visit the Patio de Los Naranjos, a beautiful courtyard filled with orange trees.

Then, head over to the Royal Alcázar of Seville. This majestic royal palace began as a fortress built by Moorish rulers in the 11th century. After the Christian reconquest, it was commissioned for King Peter of Castile in the 14th century and built over the site of the former Muslim landmark. It features well-manicured gardens, and the building itself is one of the finest examples of Mudéjar architecture in the country. For Game of Thrones fans, you'll recognize the gardens as the filming location for Dorne.
