It is alandmark example of the Renaissance Revival style in Spanish architecture.The Town Hall (Ayuntamiento) of Seville was built in the 16th century in Renaissance style on theremains of the former San Francisco monastery. The construction works were started by architectDiego de Riaño in 1527, who at the same time also added new parts to the Cathedral of Seville.Sevilles Town Hall is a beautiful building with two very different façades - the Plaza Nueva side isNeo-classical while the Plaza San Francisco side is Renaissance. The Renaissance style is unfinished -the left-hand side is very ornate but it peters out as you get to the right. This is because the architectwho designed it died during the building process, taking his vision with him.Seville Cathedral. Founded in 1403 on the site of a former mosque, the Cathedral, built in Gothic andRenaissance style, covers seven centuries of history. With its five naves it is the largest Gothic buildingin Europe.
