Spain/Andalusia: Seville – Seville Cathedral

Seville Cathedral is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third largest church in the world. Construction lasted for 100 yeas in the 15th century, and then the dome collapsed. It collapsed again in 1888 and the final construction was finished only in 1903. You feel like liliput inside the cathedral with the five-aisled interior extending 117 m in length and 76 m across and soaring 42 m in height to the nave ceiling. Multiple chambers and capillas contain many gothic religious treasures and artifacts. The exterior is also extremely ornate and not to be missed is the orange tree courtyard, a remnant of the outdoor Muslim prayer hall when this was the Mosque of Seville.
