One of Seville's best known landamarks is the glorious Giralda, a golden-hued belfry standing over 100m high and orginally modelled on the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakesh. It was originally built in 1184 as part of the Great Mosque and has since had Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical and neo-Gothic additions, resulting in the eclectic architectural gem of today. In the Cathedral itself you will find 80 chapels, 24 bells, 15 doors including the Door of Forgiveness, dating from the Islamic caliphate where you can still admire the delicate Koranic inscriptions.
