Minaret of the central mosque of Seville, which is today the , its construction began in 1184. Its name comes from the weathervane at the top of tower and which is known as the Giraldillo, which is in fact probably the best known symbol of the city. It was originally called the Triumph of the Victorious Faith and was once the largest bronze sculpture of the European Renaissance.

Construction concluded in 1568 with the addition of Renaissance bell chamber. Interestingly, the city of Marrakech has a twin tower just like the Giralda.

The tower, due to its complex history, comprises several perfectly interweaved sections, reflecting the cultural melting-pot in the city. For the construction of the Moorish part, as can be seen in its base, the remains of the buildings and stonework of Roman Hispalis were used, as they show various blocks with Latin epigraphs. The main body is square and the top part shows a polished style executed by Hernán Ruiz II.

The Giralda has 24 bells, 18 of which turn around and 6 of which are clapper. It is, therefore, the cathedral with the greatest number of bells.
