The biggest feeling for Seville:
The church is surprisingly big, after all, the world is third.
The carriage is much more surprising, and a very small intersection can fly out of the car.
Sunset is amazingly good, and there are many good weather all year round.
Flamingo dance is surprisingly moving, the applause in the small theater is constantly smashing
stewing oxtail and sangria wines are delicious and delicious, you know me, dont like to eat Only when it is so delicious, will it be dried, not to mention wine. This wine is better than any drink!

Seville Cathedral is a Gothic cathedral, built by a wall with many pointed pillars on the top of the wall. The main facade of the cathedral has five main halls (36 meters high in the main hall) on the King's Square, and its main body is a 116-meter-long 76-meter-wide rectangular building. The highest cross is up to 40 meters. There are three main gates in the church: the main entrance is the gate of the prince, and the rest are the doors of baptism, Asuncion. On the side of the church, there is a square tower towering above the building. This is the famous Giralda. The tower is 98 meters high and is the only remaining part of the original Islamic temple building. There are various patterns on the wall of the tower that symbolize the Arab art. It shows the beauty of Arab architecture.
It took almost 400 years to build Spain's largest church and the third biggest in the Christian world. Standing on the site of what was Seville's main mosque, one can still see elements of the Mudejar style of art and late Gothic style architecture. Work began in the early 15th century, and by the time it was finished, it had five naves with a floor space measuring 116m x 76m. There is an astounding number of fine paintings and sculpture inside.
