A segment of the ramp of the Giralda
The lower half of the Giralda is part of the minaret whose interior consists of chambers at the center. Built around these chambers are the ramps that are wide and tall enough to allow people and horseback riders to climb the tower. There are a total of 35 ramp segments, starting at the entrance and ending near the Christian part of the Giralda.
The image shows a ramp segment (i.e., number 23) with the original flooring. As you can see, the ramp is big enough for people to walk comfortably and is lit by the light that passes through the window situated on the right side.
