The Giralda (Spanish: La Giralda [la xiˈɾalda]) is the bell tower of Seville Cathedral in Seville, Spain. It was built as the minaret for the Great Mosque of Seville in al-Andalus, Moorish Spain, during the reign of the Almohad dynasty, with a Renaissance-style top added by the Catholics after the expulsion of the Muslims from the area. Dating from the Reconquest of 1248 to the 16th century and built by the Moors. The Giralda was registered in 1987 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, along with the Alcázar and the General Archive of the Indies. The tower is 104.1 m (342 ft) in height and remains one of the most important symbols of the city, as it has been since the Middle Ages.

This baroque building (right next to the cathedral) houses five centuries of trade documents between Spain and its colonies. The building offers an elegant marble staircase and large vaulted archive rooms. The rooms are now used for temporary exhibits. Entrance is free.

Beautiful building, although I had hoped to see more of the important documents it holds and get to know more of the colonial history it preserves.

None of the permanent exhibition is in English. Only a film about the history of the building and a temporary exhibition is in English. Looked like it could have been an interesting visit otherwise! Nevertheless, the building is impressive and there are some free public toilets, so perhaps worth a brief stop.

If you are interesting to visit this place in person maybe they will help you over there. I request help online they have bad costumer service, the support Center never help you at all, if you call waiting time longer at the end drop phone call.
