Later, with the Christian reconquest, the new architectural body of the building, incorporated in the 16th century, would arrive: the bell tower of which it became the city’s cathedral, topped by the sculpture that represents the triumph of faith, today it is popularly known for citizenship like the Giraldillo. Large statue of 4 meters acts as a weather vane, being in its time was the largest in Europe.
Since then, the Giralda is the bell tower of the Cathedral of Santa María de la Sede de Sevilla. On the cusp sits the jar on which the Giraldillo stands, which acts as a weather vane and was once the largest bronze sculpture of the Renaissance in Europe. Hence comes the name of Giralda, known at the beginning as Triumph of the Victorious Faith or, simply, Faith and built in 1568.
This imposing monument exceeds 104 meters high with the Giraldillo and for several centuries it was the tallest tower in Spain and one of the tallest in Europe. The Giralda “wins” the Big Ben in London, which is 96 meters high, and its height is almost double that of the Tower of Pisa (55.8 meters).
The Giraldillo was provisionally replaced by a replica while it was being restored. When the work was finished, the original Giraldillo was hoisted again in 2005.
With respect to the bell tower of the Giralda it is formed by 24 bells, each one with its own name, and whose touches are programmed by computer. 18 of them are bells of turn and the other 6 are of blow. To this group of 6 belongs the bell of Santa María Mayor, which is the largest of them all.
