Patterned Marble

Base of pipe organ/entry into choir, Seville Cathedral, Spain

The marble atrium supports one of two pipe organs in the Seville Cathedral. The doors open into the sides of the choir, giving access to the stalls. The original organs were built in the 17th and 18th centuries but were later destroyed in an earthquake. This architectural element dates much later than the cathedral itself, which is the world’s largest Gothic church.
