Touring UNESCO protected sites and understanding the complex city's history

Why a Christian king commissioned a palace inspired by the Arabic architecture?

Where did the emperor Charles V get married in the Alcázar and why?

Does the Christopher Columbus tomb contain his remains?

Which important historical character went up the Giralda on horse?

This tour includes the Alcazar, the oldest royal residence still in used in Europe and its magnificent gardens. And the tour of the Cathedral, one of the largest and most impressive temples in the world. Finally, the tower of the Giralda from its very top you will enjoy fantastic views of Seville.

Please notice, on Sundays the cathedral is closed in the morning so the tour will be in the afternoon starting at 14:30.

The cathedral may change the time of opening and closing or be closed without giving any public announcement. This could be a last minute decision of the diocese due to special liturgical services. In these exceptional cases, we will replace the Cathedral with another monument of Seville.
