    Description:

    Appropriated the minaret as a bell-tower (1589-1593; 1656; restored 18th century).

Each bay was defined by a set of two-tiered horseshoe arches with alternating red brick and white stone voussoirs, which were later coloured. It was enlarged by building programs until 988. In 1236 Ferdinand III of Castile and…

    Description:

    The Gothic cathedral is also popularly called The House of Light or the Pulchra Leonina, dedicated to Santa María de la Regla (S Maria de León). It is the purest reflection of French Gothic architecture in Spain, although its authenticity has been compromised by 15th and 16th century additions and several 19th century restoration campaigns. There has been building on the site since 800, when the first structure was erected over old Roman baths. León cathedral’s design is related to Reims …

    Description:

    The Baroque choir and choir-stalls (1725-1733) were designed by Joaquín de Churriguera and Alberto de Churriguera.

    By the late 15th century the Romanesque cathedral no longer reflected Salamanca’s status as seat of Castile’s premier university, and in 1491 the chapter resolved to build a new church. In 1509 Ferdinand the Catholic ordered Alfonso Rodríguez (died ca. 1512) and Antón Egas to go to Salamanca, inspect the site and prepare a plan. The New Cathedral has many similarities to…

    Description:

    Huddled against the Gothic cathedral, the Romanesque church dedicated to the Virgin has been known as the ‘Catedral Vieja’ (the Old Cathedral) since the 16th century. A first, modest building was erected when the city was repopulated after the Christian Reconquest in 1102, but work started on the present church in the mid-12th century. From the beginning of the 13th century and throughout the 14th, many sculpted and painted tombs were placed in the south transept and the apses, as wel…

    Description:

    Of the post-Islamic period in Málaga, the artistic endeavour of highest consequence is the cathedral (1528-1783; one tower unfinished), built on a Gothic plan but with classical details on the site of the city’s main mosque by Diego de Siloe and Diego de Vergara (died 1582). José de Bada (1691-1756) continued work on the west nave and towers in 1722, introducing Baroque details in the looming four-storey façade, and Antonio de Ramos (died 1782) took over in 1755. Pedro de Mena (died 1688)…
