GEOGRAPHY

The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, better known as Seville Cathedral , is a Roman Catholic Cathedral in Seville (Andalusia, Spain). It is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world.

HISTORY

The cathedral's construction lasted over a century. The basilica occupies the site of the great Aljama mosque, built in the late 12th century by the Almohads, the ruling Moorish dynasty, of which the only remaining parts are the Patio de Naranjas, the Puerta del Perdon (on the north side), and the Giralda (formerly the minaret, now the belltower).
