Photo: Granada Cathedral Facade Andalusia Spain

The facade of the Granada Cathedral in the City of Granada in Andalusia, Spain, gleams under the deep blue sky during the summer months.

Touring through the City of Granada in Andalusia, Spain, the famous landmark of the Granada Cathedral is found in a beautiful older area of the city center. The entire facade of the cathedral is hard to capture in a picture as the other buildings have been constructed extremely close, so the enormity of the cathedral is not fully recognized until making your way through the entranceway doors.Known as the finest Renaissance church, it was first initialized on March 15th, 1523 and in 1529, Diego de Siloe outlined the Renaissance lines on the building in Gothic style. This included a triforium and five naves instead of the three which were usually built on cathedrals. The main facade was altered in 1667 to include some Baroque style and during the years of the plague, the construction of the Granada Cathedral came to a halt. It was not until 1704 that the cathedral was completed.Inside the cathedral, ... continue below the picture...
