Visiting with children

There is didactic material adapted for children that can be downloaded here:


This project proposes an approach to the history and the prevailing art in the Cathedral, through dialogue and the participation of the children, who will develop their capacity for observation and analysis of the inherited heritage. In addition, this material seeks to enrich the cultural visit in the educational and family environment.

This material consists of a Teacher’s Notebook, a Student’s Notebook and an illustrated booklet, which includes resources, basic information, questions, a gallery of characters, basic vocabulary, a timeline and useful activities for families with school-age children and teachers of kindergarten, primary and secondary education to use when making a cultural visit to the Cathedral of Seville.

Both booklets include basic information, legends and traditions, as well as suggestions and resources to prepare a self-guided tour with the youngest visitors, along the Cathedral and Giralda monuments. In this way, it is intended to facilitate the reinforcement of historical-artistic concepts and to integrate the study of sacred art into the school and family curriculum.

Throughout the Teacher’s Notebook, parents, adults and/or teachers in charge of guiding the visit have described:

  • The guidelines to follow in the visit to the Cathedral of Seville within the framework of the E.S.O. curriculum.
  • The main objectives of this educational visit, from a general perspective and in relation to the students, are to
  • Proposed methodological guidelines: before, during and after the visit
  • A series of cards summarizing the most important areas of the Cathedral, together with the visual references of the activities that have been designed for the children in the Student’s Notebook.

The Student’s Notebook is presented in a simple language and illustrated and digital images that facilitate the understanding and enjoyment of children, away from academic formats.

In addition to a historical introduction and the activities proposed for each school year, the notebook includes a gallery of characters, vocabulary and a visual timeline.

We hope that these materials, which can be used in whole or in part and in any order, will be a useful tool for students to acquire more knowledge about the value of art in the context of the Christian temple, promote tolerance for different forms of aesthetic expression and awaken a love for our heritage, in a close and fun way.
