Puerta del Príncipe (Prince’s Gate)
Located on the south transept of the Seville Cathedral, the Puerta del Príncipe (also known as Puerta de San Cristóbal) is one of the 15 doors of the cathedral built on all four cardinal directions. The architect of this richly decorated neo-Gothic style door was Joaquín Fernández Casanova, who built it between 1887 and 1895.

In front of the door is the sculpture of Faith, which is a replica of El Giraldillo mounted atop the Giralda.
