Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to the Seville Cathedral, also called the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Sea (Catedral de Santa María de la Sede). Meet your tour guide and group, and enter the cathedral before it is open to the general public. 

Marvel at the sheer size of the building, the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. Soak up the ambiance of the nearly-empty space, and enjoy looking around without the presence of the usual crowds. 

Walk through the enormous central nave, dominated by a choir box and one of the largest altarpieces in the world, which features carved scenes from the life of Christ. See the city key surrendered to Fernando by the Moorish and Jewish city occupants, inscribed with a final protest. Admire the 15th-century stained glass windows and the intricate iron screens that close off the eighty chapels in the cathedral. The Royal Chapel, or Capilla Real, was the original royal burial chapel and now contains the silver shrine of Fernando III.

Opt to climb La Giralda, originally a Moorish minaret and now the cathedral's bell tower. This tower is 343 feet (105 meters) tall and is a well-known symbol of the city of Seville. 

After your tour, feel free to ask questions before heading off to continue exploring Seville.

Our guide for this tour was Rosa from Amigo Tours. She is fantastic - very knowledgeable and informative. Before we started the tour, one of the other participants was very upset when she learned the tour was going to be in both Spanish and English. The lady felt like she was only getting 50 of her money's worth out of the trip because of the time being spent saying the same thing in both languages. Rosa explained to the women that she translates sentence by sentence so that everyone received the same information. Rosa did exactly as she promised. I have never seen anyone switch from one language to another with every sentence, but she did. She was superb! We also had her for our guide for the Alcazar early access tour on a previous day. The Cathedral is amazing. So big and so much to see. If you went on your own, you just wouldn't be able to appreciate the many chapels and objects displayed. It is very important to have the backstory to everything, Without the backstory I wouldn't know where Christopher Columbus is buried - above or below? You must go to the top of the tower. The view is awesome!

Our guide Rosa was just amazing. We met her at the meeting point where she explained that the Archbishop ? had a free hand in the cathedral opening hours and on that day had decided no visitors until 11.00. As the weather had turned very cold she suggested we go off somewhere warm while she queued in the cold for us and reassemble at 10.50. At 11.00 we gained entry and Rosa proved to be a superb guide very knowledgeable and very interesting in her delivery of the historical and social information. Our tour lasted about a couple of hours although it felt like half that time and at the end of it my wife and I felt that we gained an understanding of the architecture, the history and the religious significance of both the cathedral and the surrounding area. I know that this tour was maybe more expensive than others, but boy was it worth every penny. Most of us will probably only visit Seville Cathedral once in our lives so do it properly and you'll be left with an experience you'll remember for a long time I had no idea Christopher Columbus had been buried, exhumed and re-interred so many times!. If you're lucky enough to get Rosa as your guide you're in for a real treat!

The tour boasts: Before-hours access to the Seville Cathedral.....including early morning access before public opening hours., but in reality you enter with the general public, nothing earlier than the posted times for visitors. The tour boasts: Viator Exclusive tour is not available anywhere else..guide was very clear from local agency that they market this same tour on mulitple sites. Save your money and go on the regular tour...or go on your own.

We had a wonderful guide, Rosa, who met us in front of the Cathedral 15 minutes before opening. Only problem was that opening was delayed by 30 minutes that morning apparently not uncommon n Sevilla, so we had a nice chat about places to go and things to do in the area while we waited. Rosa was an enthusiastic, educational, and engaged guide through the Cathedral. She provided historical context to the building and transformations of the building and the contents inside. Wonderful statues and artwork inside the cathedral. We climbed to the top of the Giralda for the best view in Sevilla. If you see the Cathedral, go with a guide. Well worth it.
