The Giralda of Seville

giralda de sevilla
giralda de sevilla

Is an Arab monument that has remained in the capital after it was recovered by the Christians during the Reconquest.

From the top of the tower you will be able to enjoy beautiful views of sevilla and its historic centre.

You have to climb many ramps to get to the top, wear comfortable shoes and do not do it after eating, so you do not tire anymore.

The lower two thirds of the tower correspond to the minaret of the old mosque of the city, from the late twelfth century, in the Almohad period, while the upper third is a construction superimposed in Christian times to house the bells.

At the top there is a weather vane, called the Giraldillo.

The Tower is 104 metres high, for several centuries it was the tallest tower in Spain and one of the tallest in Europe. At the top of the tower there are 24 bells.

In order to know everything that happens every day in the Giralda the best thing is to go to the official website and see what especial activities there are every days.
