What's the Historical Center, Seville Like?

In the historical quarter of Seville, the main attractions are clustered close together. The Giralda tower has become the familiar symbol of the city. Originally the elaborate minaret of a 12th century mosque, it was later converted into the bell tower of the cathedral, without diminishing the elegance of its Moorish construction, with arched niches and ascending interior ramps. The cathedral itself, constructed in the 15th century on the site of the former mosque, is one of the world's largest churches, the claim backed up by a certificate from Guinness inside. The interior features the tomb of Christopher Columbus, an elaborate Romantic construction with figures representing the historic Spanish kingdoms of Castile, Leon, Navarre, and Aragon. The Alcazar, the former palace and fortress of the Moorish rulers, is still used by the Spanish royal family. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Alcazar features elegant patios and sublime architecture that rates among the finest examples of craftsmanship in Spain. Hotels in the historical center, Seville are a great base for enjoying the compelling attractions of this romantic and beautiful city.
