Spain: Andalusia: Seville #1

The Cathedral of St. Mary was built after the mosque was torn down after the Reconquista.  The Giralda, the bell tower, was the minaret.  Inside the bell tower are ramps instead of steps for the Muezzin to ride a horse instead of climbing all those stairs.  Columbus is buried inside the church.
