Inside it does not have stairways but ramps

La Giralda is a part of the Cathedral of Seville, although for its history it deserves its own separate chapter. Not for nothing, it is all that remains of the mosque on which the aforementioned cathedral was built.

It is the tallest building in Seville, not counting the Alamillo Bridge, and at one time, was the tallest tower in the world.

Inside it does not have stairways but ramps. It was created this way so that horses could climb to its highest point. It is crowned by a set of bells and Christian architecture (Renaissance) and by the very well-known Giraldillo, a weathervane

My Giralda


What I can say about La Giralda, trying to be fair with all that this wonderful millenary tower has given me.

I live about ten minutes’ walk from the "Roof of Seville", for which I feel I’ve been a bit cheeky not visiting it more often. It's a place where one can think while watching the city. Problems are not so great from up there. Concerns transform into exaggerations. Suddenly the noise of the metropolis slumbers, cars and people become ants and everything is more beautiful and heavenly.

The ramps that climb to the top of the Giralda are long, but they’re always worth it.

The tower of Seville


One of the most beautiful and charming spots in the world, La Giralda in Seville Cathedral, and the district of Santa Cruz with that smell of Azahar (orange blossom), alleys and narrow streets, the art of its people. A myriad of wonders found in this Seville neighbourhood, with its majestic tower, La Giralda of Seville. What more could you want?

Discovering Views

When you take pictures you generally photograph what you see, or what you think you see, but when you see it again you see things that your eyes hadn't seen. That's what happened to me when I saw the pictures I took of the Tower of Giralda. I discovered, for example, a white line that ended up being the Alamillo Bridge, built between 1989 and 1992 by Santiago Calatrava. The bridge has only one arm and it is one of the most outstanding constructions made in Seville for the Universal Exhibit in 1992.

I could also see afar the Quinto Centenario Bridge, with two towers of 120 meters in altitude and inaugurated in 1991 for the celebration of the 500 years of the discovery of America. On the background I could distinguish the La Cartuja Island, famous for its convent that is now a china and porcelain factory.

With comfortable footwear

When visiting the cathedral of Seville we are faced with a dilemma: will we be able to climb 36 flights of steep stone ramps? What will we find at the end of them?

Of course we can, although we are aware that the descent will have to be taken slowly, holding the handrails as the stone is quite worn. Of course, comfortable footwear with soles that do not slide should be worn.

When we go up we find, in the belfry, the most wonderful views of Seville from all sides, and during the descent, taking advantage of the little windows and open spaces, the best panoramas of what we normally

It is a special place, no doubt about it. By day and by night, its immensity will amaze everyone. It is very surprising to see the different styles mixed in the architecture, and also how big the Giralda is. It is the perfect place to walk around, a place that deserves a good visit.
