    Description:

    Granada Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church in the city of Granada, Spain. Construction was not begun until the sixteenth century, after acquisition of the Nasrid kingdom of Granada from its Muslim rulers in 1492. While its earliest plans had Gothic designs, most of the church’s construction occurred when the Spanish Renaissance style was supplanting the Gothic in Spanish architecture.

Its notable features include some fine figurative stone carving, a set of 15th century choir stalls and the largest window in the Flowing Decorated Gothic style in England (the East window).

It is the only remnant of the medieval city of Rotterdam to survive the bombings of WWII. After heavy damage in the bombing, there was controversy over rebuilding with arc…
