Explore Seville Cathedral on a Private Tour
Seville Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Mary, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in 1401 and is the largest church in Spain, located in the heart of Seville.
With a private tour, your guide will take you through the Cathedral’s art treasures, including the Main Altar, which is a massive 66 feet high and 60 feet wide, intricately carved wooden structure that must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Your knowledgeable guide will also provide historical context and insights into the figures who have contributed to the Cathedral’s prominence over the centuries.
Highlights on a Seville Cathedral Tour
Giralda Tower: Climb the magnificent bell tower for breathtaking views of Seville, both inside and out.
Orange Tree Courtyard (Patio de Los Naranjos): Originally a sahn of the mosque, this courtyard was extensively remodeled in the 13th century to serve as a cloister and cemetery.
The Royal Chapel (Capilla Real): The final resting place of Spanish royalty, including Alfonso X and Pedro I, known as the Cruel, who built the Alcázar.
Main Altar (Altar Mayor): The grandeur of the Main Altar is overshadowed by the golden brilliance of the main altarpiece. The Flemish craftsmen started carving and polychroming it in 1482, and it took almost a century to complete. Featuring hundreds of figures and scenes from the life of Christ, the City, and the Cathedral, it is a stunning masterpiece.
Christopher Columbus’ Tomb (Monumento de Colón): Located near the Ancient Chapel, where Columbus is believed to have prayed before his voyages, the tomb or monument is a magnificent tribute to the explorer.
Royal Palace Tour (Real Alcazar of Seville)
The Real Alcázar de Sevilla, Spain, is a UNESCO-listed Royal Palace that blends Moorish traditions and Christian culture to create a magnificent palace. It dates back to 913 and is still King Felipe V’s official residence when in Seville.
Puerta del León (The Lion’s Gate)
The Lion’s Gate is a courtyard that contains some of the oldest original features found in the Alcazar. Your guide will discuss the many centuries of war, Moorish and Christian traditions, and history that occurred within these walls before you move onto the Hall of Justice just on the other side of the courtyard.
Patio de las Doncellas or the Patio of the Maidens
The Patio of the Maidens is the finest highlight of the Alcazar. With long rectangular pools and gorgeous sunken gardens on either side, your eye will unfailingly be drawn to the fabulous details of the tiling and symmetrical arches.
Palacio de Don Pedro - The Palace of Peter I
The Palacio de Don Pedro is a stunning Mudejar architectural-style palace built in the 14th Century to mark the beginning of King Peter’s reign. The palace houses Arabic inscriptions, and the Castilian monarchs of the time used Andalusian models for their inspiration.
The Ambassador's Hall
The Ambassador’s hall is a marvelous shining wooden dome that was originally constructed by Al-Mu’tamid in the 11th century and renovated in the 14th Century by the Christian King Peter the Just. A visit to the present day with your private guide will invite you into the world of splendor that dignitaries received all those centuries ago.
Seville Evening Experience
After immersing yourself in Seville’s grandeur during the day, your guide will take you on an evening tour of the Triana district, located on the bank of the Guadalquivir river.
