Tired of catherdrals? (I hope not.)

View from the top of the tower.

This has been an unusually wet winter, keeping us inside most days off.
The first break in the downpour, John and I went to Seville. There is so much to see, but we (of course) began with the Cathedral.

It claims to be the largest Gothic church in Europe and in the the top 6 of all Christian churches. After wandering through the church, then climbing the 30 or so stories of the bell tower, we were exhausted. We braved the cold and had lunch outside, then headed home.

I wonder if they have their own hunchback to ring the bells.

Everyroom was more gorgeous than the last.

Supposedly, this is one of the places that Christopher Columbus's remains is laid to rest. Sevilla is not the only place to claim they have his remains. I have read that DNA tests are being performed. I have not heard of an outcome yet.

Isn't she beautiful?
