    Description:

    A single-cell, five-bay nave and polygonal, star-vaulted apse.

    Around 1440 Bishop Alonso de Cartagena (reigned 1415-1456) brought Juan de Colonia to Burgos.

    Description:

    Lucas Giraldo (fl 1529-1544), a follower of Vasco de la Zarza, carved the trascoro (choir screen; 1531-1536) with the Infancy of Christ and rich Plateresque decoration.

The altar is flanked by the tombs of the founders, John and Ines de Castro Lerma, both decease…
