Date of View:
La Giralda is the city's most famous symbol. It was built as a minaret of the old mosque, although the bell tower and spire top is Renaissance (1568). The name comes from the statue of Faith (a weathervane) which tops the spire. It is one of three remaining Almohad minarets in the world.
