THE GIRALDA OF SEVILLE
La Giralda is the former minaret of the great Almohad mosque in Seville , Andalusia . After the reconquest of the city ( the Reconquista ), the mosque was converted into a cathedral and the Giralda became the bell tower of the cathedral 1 . Following an earthquake in the 14th century , which led to the destruction of the original mosque, the estimates for the construction of the new Cathedral of Our Lady of Seville provided for the preservation of the Giralda, which however is subject to modifications according to the Spanish architectural style. It is one of the most important monuments of Spanish-Muslim architecture and the symbolic figure of Seville , so much so that an implicit rule of town planning forbids any other building from the center of the Andalusian capital to reach its height.
