Inside Catedral de Sevilla – The World’s Largest Gothic Cathedral

Catedral de Sevilla boggles the mind. Not only it’s incredibly huge but also unbelievably magnificent inside! It’s the most stunning cathedral I’ve ever been to, so far. From the dome ceilings to the columns and to the marble floors, everything is just amazingly stunning. I honestly had goosebumps as soon as I got in and looked up the domes so high and richly ornamented. The Gothic architecture itself commands strength, power and beauty. It’s beautiful. It’s grand. And it leaves you speechless.
