The Cathedral of Sevilla with the Giralda tower - the one symbol of Sevilla. Girada built as a Minaret was christianised by adding bells to the top of the tower and is now the main symbol of the Cathedral. Climbing it is said to be easy since there are almost no staris, but a lot of ramps connected to each other.
