Hidden in Seville

Hidden in Seville

Gold. Lot’s of it. The tomb of Christopher Columbus is here too.

Can you guess where I am?

Tilt your head sideways. I’m inside the famous cathedral in Seville, the world’s largest church.

Hidden in the nooks and crannies of the church are relics and priceless artworks. Gold is everywhere.

Mr. T, if you are reading this, please stop drooling.

Here’s another nice picture of a gold crown in the church taken by a better photographer. Besides being a fascinating object, you have to imagine this crown’s history.  Who has put this crown on their head?   Surely it’s been on the heads of royalty, but you have to wonder if museum curators ever take the liberty to strut their stuff in a crown like this. Would you if you were a museum curator?
