Cazalla Local History

The church of Nuestra Señora de la Consolación - which dates back to the 14th century, is at the southern end of town and an amazing example of "assorted" architecture. Another lovely site only a 5km walk way is the little 18th century church called the Ermita del Monte. Only a bus ride away in Seville you will find the Seville cathedral, the third-largest in the world with Roman/Gothic/Renaissance elements and an interesting history. Important to mention is the remarkable Flemish glass-work. Also visit the Museum in the Cathedral which boasts objects of enormous historical and artistic value and if you are interested in the history of bull fighting, then you must visit the Seville Bullfight-Museum at the Real Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza.
