La Giralda

Highly recommended
Emblem of Seville; a masterpiece of Almohad art, the minaret (96 m) of the old mosque was built in the12C. In the 16C the Cordovan architect Hernán Ruiz gave it its current appearance of a belfry by adding the bell chamber and four upper rooms and by adding the balconies. The whole is topped by a statue symbolising Faith and acting as a weathervane (giralda). The panoramic view over Seville is worth the effort of climbing it.
