The Lighthouse of Islamic Faith

The most visible symbol today of the cathedral’s Islamic past is the current bell tower, originally the mosque’s minaret and now a symbol of Seville itself. Architect Ahmed Ibn Basso began its construction in 1184, recycling Umayyad stones and Roman marbles to build the basement of the tower. The minaret was completed however by another architect after the death of the first, Ali al-Ghumari, in 1198, who changed the main constructive material using brick instead of stone. The style of the entire construction is similar to some buildings in North Africa that rose almost at the same time as the tower of Seville, such as the minaret of the Kutubiyya Mosque in Marrakech. Likewise the Moroccan minaret, four golden spheres that shone like a lighthouse from a distance originally crowned the Sevillian tower.
