Enter the cathedral and head over to see the tomb of Christopher Columbus in front of the Puerta del Principe. The monument contains the remains of the explorer, although debate continues as to whether or not the bones are actually his. Learn about the history of the cathedral, which goes back to the 15th century. In 1248, the Castilian King Fernando III captured Seville from its Almohad rulers and transformed their great 12th-century mosque into a church. 153 years later, the city's authorities decided to replace the mosque, which had been damaged by an earthquake in 1356. This resulted in the staggering cathedral you see today, officially known as the Cathedral de Santa María de la Sede. It's one of the world's largest churches with notable works by Zurbaran, Murillo, Goya and others.
Excellent. Sorry it was not possible to book tickets for the Palace Rooms at the same time...
