    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)…

    Description:

    Looking at the back of the Old Cathedral at the Patio Chico (small plaza) where the two buildings meet and are connected.

    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 13…

    Description:

    In 1118 Saragossa was conquered by Alfonso I of Aragon (reigned 1104-1134) and repopulated with Béarnais immigrants, while the Muslims were relocated in an extramural suburb. The old cathedral, La Seo (Aragonese for “the See”), was at one point a mosque. Reconstructed from 1119, most of the surviving fabric (restored) is 14th and 15th century. Pere Johan (died 1458) was brought from Barcelona to make the predella of the main altar in 1444, and Gabriel Joly worked on the retable (152…

    Description:

    A chapel dedicated to Mary had existed since the early Christian era. By the time of the Aragonese conquest the shrine of the Virgin of the Pillar was an important magnet for pilgrims Indulgences for the embellishment of the shrine were sold as far afield as Germany and Greece in 1297, and most Aragonese monarchs until Philip II of Spain (1556-1598) made bequests. Damián Forment made the main retable (from 1509). The particular devotion of Charles II (reigned 1665-1700) to Nuestra Señora del …

    Description:

    In 1667 Alonso Cano, working with Gaspar de la Peña, altered the initial plan for the main façade, introducing Baroque elements.

    A second phase of Charles V’s program for Granada began in 1526. An ambitious plan was developed to make Granada the centre of an empire; Gothic was rejected in favour of a new vocabulary based on Greco-Roman antiquity. This was the justification for abandoning Enrique Egas’s Gothic-style plan for Granada Cathedral and adopting a Renaissance-style one (1528…

An ambitious plan was developed to make Granada the centre of an empire; Gothic was rejected in favour of a new vocabulary based on Greco-Roman antiquity. This was the justification for abandoning Enrique Egas’s Gothic-style plan for Granada Cathedral and adopting a Renaissance-style one (1528) by Diego de Siloé: the cathedral’s new imperial status required a style recalling that of Imperial Rome. After Siloé’s d…

    Description:

    Juan de Colonia was probably brought to Spain (Castile) by Alonso de Cartagena, Bishop of Burgos, to design his sepulchral chapel, the Capilla de la Visitación (1440-1442) off the south transept in the cathedral. They may have met when Bishop Alonso attended the Council of Basle.

    The foundation stone of the present building, dedicated to the Virgin, was laid by Bishop Maurice of Burgos (reigned 1217-1238) on 20 July 1221. The cathedral is indebted to the design of Bourges Cathedral. In the F…

    Description:

    The altarpiece (retable or retablo) of the apse of the central chapel was sculpted by the brothers Rodrigo and Martín de la Haya in a Renaissance or Mannerist style, 1562-1580; it was polychromed in 1593.

    The foundation stone of the present building, dedicated to the Virgin, was laid by Bishop Maurice of Burgos (reigned 1217-1238) on 20 July 1221. The cathedral is indebted to the design of Bourges Cathedral. In the French High Gothic context the cathedral’s plan and elevation are old-fas…

    Description:

    Chapel of the Condestable, begun in 1482 off the axial bay of the ambulatory. It was founded by the Constable of Castile, Pedro Fernández de Velasco, and his wife Dona Mencia de Mendoza and designed by Simón de Colonia.

    The foundation stone of the present building, dedicated to the Virgin, was laid by Bishop Maurice of Burgos (reigned 1217-1238) on 20 July 1221. The cathedral is indebted to the design of Bourges Cathedral. In the French High Gothic context the cathedral’s plan and elevation are old-fashioned. Since Burgos was on the pilgrimage route to Galicia, however, they make the cathedral a latter-day pilgrimage church, with its three façades, gallery and extra chapels. In the 15th and 16th centurie…
