Photographer's Note

Giralda is by Sevilla cathedral. Minaret was last architectural work Almohadów and he served as example for similar built constructions in Rabat and Marakesz. Tower served Moors to assembling faithful on prayer as well as as observatory. After conquest by Christians Giralda, named so with reason XVI she - stood on top eternal weathercock belfry, she stood with belfry of Christian cathedral. It is this the doubtless prettiest building in Sewilli. It from belfry on which view was has come in was on foot it stretches on city and on cathedral. Really from mountain visible the quantity of buttresss is and Gothic sculptures. The building the Giralda lasted 12 years - 1184-1196. Beauty of this tower depends on game of shadows of the open - work plaiting from brick different of the every side which vanish in numerous niches and the finished with bows windows. The largest impression does however the interior of belfry - consists from 35 oblique the loading platforms softly on so many wide, it that it was can was on them freely pass two guards on horses. The balconies in times of renaissance were added to building.
