The Cathedral, the Real Alcazar and the Archivo de Indias are part of an admirable monumental ensemble in the heart of Seville, a city that was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.

The Real Alcazar of Seville is one of the oldest palaces in use in the world. A fortress palace built by Abd Al Raman III that has lived different stages in time, from the late eleventh century to the present day contemplating from its walls the influence of different cultures that have passed through the city.

The Cathedral and the Alcazar, which date from the Reconquest of 1248 to the 16th century and are imbued with Arab influences, are an exceptional testimony to the civilization of the Almohads and Christian Andalusia. The minaret of the Giralda is the masterpiece of Almohad architecture. It is located next to the five-nave cathedral; the largest Gothic building in Europe, it houses the tomb of Christopher Columbus. The old Lonja, converted into the Archivo de Indias, contains valuable documents from the archives of the American colonies.
