Seville is the artistic, cultural and financial capital of southern Spain and capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia.
The film begins with a shot of an outdoor market of travel guides and souvenirs.
The historical centre of the city is dominated by the Seville Cathedral dedicated to the Virgin. It is considered to be the largest Gothic church in the world and the third largest church after Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome and Saint Paul’s in London. It was built in the 15th century, replacing an Arabic mosque which stood on the site during the Moorish rule.
The bell tower of the church, La Giralda (which means weather vane). We see the cinematographer ascending the tower of which is approximately 100 metres high and offers a unique view of the city.
In the shot we can make out the oval of the unique Maestranza arena.
The entire height of La Giralda is filmed from the street with a vertical movement of the camera, as is the courtyard of the church.
Departure from Seville by car are the last shots of the film.
Christopher Columbus was buried inside the Cathedral which contains many works by Goya among others.
