El Giraldillo, the Rotating Sculpture

The bell tower was also crowned with the erection of a monumental sculpture on top, a finishing touch that would foreground the vigor of Christian faith. The almost 4m sculpture – 7m with the pedestal- was cast in 1568 by Bartolomé Morel according to the principles of Humanism, reconciling Christianity with the Classical tradition. To this end, the figure, which is a representation of faith, is portrayed with a hybrid visual idiom, carrying a cross and a palm of martyrdom as typical Christian signifiers and wearing, at the same time, the helmet and clothes of the ancient goddess Minerva. Apart from being a kindly reminder of the vanquishment of the Moors, the statue serves as a weather vane that turns according to the direction of the wind. Thus, the weathervane earned the name el Giraldillo and the bell tower became known as Giralda, "the one that turns", from the Spanish verb girar, meaning turn.
