The Giralda Through the Ages

Just wanted to share this image that shows the transformation of Sevilla´s Giralda since Moorish times.  A ramp (for the horse and rider) wraps its way around all the way up until you reach the top portion added after 1356.  The ramp made it an easier climb (than 33+ flights of stairs).
