Summary[edit]

Description
English: Retrochoir of the Roman Catholic cathedral of Seville, Seville, Spain. This wonderful Baroque style retrochoir is work of Miguel de Zumárraga and was finalized in 1635. It was constructed with precious materials like marmor or jasper and it's decorated with bas-relieves and bronce busts. The gothic painting in the middle shows the Virgin of Los Remedios, very popular in the Reconquista times and still very devoted in Spain. The temple is since 1987 a World Heritage Site according to the UNESCO and is the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world. When it was completed, at the beginning of the 16th century, it became the successor of Hagia Sophia as the largest cathedral in the world, a title the Byzantine church had held for nearly a thousand years. The cathedral is also the burial site of Christopher Columbus.
Español: Vista del trascoro de la catedral de Sevilla, Sevilla, España. Este bello trascoro de estilo barroco es obra de Miguel de Zumárraga y se finalizó en 1635. Se construyó con materiales nobles como el mármol o el jaspe, y está decorado con bajorrelieves y bustos de bronce. La pintura gótica del centro está dedicada a la Virgen de Los Remedios, muy popular durante la Reconquista y aún muy devota en la actualidad. El templo católico está declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la UNESCO desde 1987, y es la catedral gótica más grande del mundo y la tercera entre todas las iglesias. Cuando se finalizó su construcción a comienzos del siglo XVI se convirtió en la sucesora de Hagia Sophia como la catedral más grande del mundo, un título que la iglesia bizantina retuvo durante casi 1000 años. En la catedral sevillana se conservan también los restos fúnebres de Cristóbal Colón.
Français : Arrière-chœur de style baroque de la cathédrale de Seville, à Séville, en Espagne. Achevé en 1635, il est est l'œuvre de l'architecte Miguel de Zumárraga. Il a été construit avec des matériaux coûteux comme le marbre ou le jaspe, et est décoré de bas-reliefs et de bustes en bronze. La peinture gothique au centre montre la Virgen de Los Remedios (Vierge des remèdes), très populaire au cours de la Reconquista, et encore aujourd'hui. La cathédrale est inscrite au patrimoine mondial de l'Unesco depuis 1987. Lorsque sa construction a été achevée au début du XVIe siècle, elle est devenue la plus grande cathédrale du monde, succédant à Sainte-Sophie. C'est aujourd'hui la troisième plus grande, et la plus grande cathédrale gothique. C'est aussi le lieu où reposent les restes de Christophe Colomb.
Polski: Tylny chór (ang. retrochoir) w katedrze Najświętszej Marii PannySewilli. Ten wspaniały barokowy chór jest dziełem Miguela de Zumárragi, a jego budowę ukończono w 1635 roku. Został zbudowany z cennych materiałów, takich jak marmur czy jaspis i jest ozdobiony płaskorzeźbami oraz popiersiami z brązu. Gotycki obraz w środku przedstawia „Dziewicę z los Remedios” (hiszp. Virgen de los Remedios), bardzo popularną w  czasach rekonkwisty i nadal bardzo czczoną w Hiszpanii. Od 1987 roku świątynia jest na liście światowego dziedzictwa UNESCO, jest największą katedrą gotycką i trzecim co do  wielkości kościołem na świecie. Gdy na początku XVI wieku ukończono jej budowę, stała się oną następczynią Hagia Sophia jako największej katedry na świecie, którą bizantyńska świątynia była przez niemal 1000 lat. Katedra jest także miejscem pochówku Krzysztofa Kolumba.
