La catedral de Sevilla

In terms of volume, it’s the largest cathedral in the world (beating out the Hagia Sofia after a thousand years in the top spot) and third largest church (after Saint Peter’s in Rome and some other church I hadn’t heard of until I read about it on Wikipedia). Noteworthy, I’m sure, but to be honest, to my eye it doesn’t hold a candle to the Alcazar next door. The best part is the giant minaret, last survivor of the mosque that previously stood on the site, that has been become the church’s bell tower. That and the poor bishop whose tomb effigy has preserved his forty-seven chins for eternity.

    An amazing feat of architecture, but a bit too ornate for my taste. 47 chins to last through all time…that’s hilarious!
