Catedral de Granada

210 votes
El interior de la Catedral de Granada es de estilo renacentista, alzado sobre planta gótica, de cinco naves. Destaca la Capilla Mayor, una de las obras más bellas y atrevidas de la arquitectura universal. En esta Capilla Mayor se encuentran las estatuas orantes de los Reyes Católicos. Sus muros son altos y están decorados con vidrieras muy bellas, algunas traídas de Flandes.

La obra fue concebida en 1523 por Enrique Egas basándose en el modelo la Catedral de Toledo. Pero finalmente fue Diego de Siloé quien, en 1529, se encargará de las obras, que se concluirán en 1537. El autor traza las líneas renacentistas de todo el edificio sobre los cimientos góticos, con girola y cinco naves en lugar de las tres habituales.
