World Heritage Site Seville Cathedral and Columbus' Tomb - Also the connection with "The Brothers Karamazov" Spain 30

Seville is the capital of Andalusia and the largest city in the region.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, it became the largest city in Spain and is still the fourth largest city in Spain.

My destination, Seville Cathedral, is a cathedral whose construction began in 1402 and was completed in 1519.

It is a huge cathedral built under the slogan, "Let us build a cathedral so large that future generations will say it is insane."

And although it is not well known, Seville is the setting for the "Grand Inquisitor" chapter, the highlight of Dostoevsky's masterpiece "The Brothers Karamazov". In this article, we will also talk about Seville and Dostoevsky.

The Mezquita of Cordoba, a World Heritage Site and its History - A church inside a mosque! Spain Edition 29

The Mezquita is Cordoba's most famous landmark. Along with the Alhambra Palace, this huge mosque is considered the pinnacle of Islamic architecture.

The interior is filled with distinctive arched columns called a forest of columns.

Construction of the Mezquita itself began in 785, and it has been enlarged and remodeled many times since then to its current form.

What is interesting about this building is that when Cordoba was occupied by Christians during the Reconquista in the 13th century, the building was converted into a Christian church in its entirety.

Then, in the 16th century, there was a major renovation that resulted in the unusual creation of a huge cathedral inside the mosque.
