“More impressive outside than in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

The cathedral is very large but not that complicated. We used the audio guide and I would NOT recommend this unless you are REALLY interested in the art works as it tells you very little about the background to the cathedral but goes into great deal about every picture in ALL the side altars. Obviously what everyone goes to see are the golden altarpiece, the tomb of Columbus (if you discount the one in the caribbean) and Giralda Tower. For these, it is worth the admission price.

“Huge, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Can't say that after a day of visiting of Seville there is anything that sticks to mind about this place. Other than the fact that is huge. The architectural embroideries are quite scarce, there are very few vitrailes, ( ( I don;t mention here other similar places in Europe that are rich in both or either one), I'd say if you haven;t seen Florence, Milan, Prague, Vienna those should come first on your list. And only if you have the money and the time and you've seen those before it's still worth thinking twice before planning a visit to Seville.

“Worth seeing if only for the huge interior”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

A must see, but no need to spend more than 2 hours there. Can be cold and windy at top of Giralda tower - be prepared.

“Silver and Gold Altars a Must-See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The size and scope of this huge church is truly remarkable. The gold and silver altars are more than impressive. The rosemary-offering Roma outside its doors are to be avoided however. A "No, gracias" does the job.
