It is located in the heart of Granada and the entrance is through the Gran Vía. The Cathedral is considered the first renaissance church in Spain. It was designed by Enrique Egas together with the Major Mosque and started to be built in 1505 but, then Diego de Siloé continued it as a renaissance construction.
It shows five naves with transept ambulatory which was first designed by Egas as a gothic work, although subsequent works by Diego de Siloé from 1563 turned it into one of the purest renaissance works in Spain.
The Chancel is the temple’s most important place exhibiting a splendid dome, a great arch resembling a triumphal arch which would be the monumental entry to the Emperor’s tomb.
