This lengthy construction period helps explain the cathedral's different architectural styles, including Muslim.
I did manage a few shots of the cathedral's main portal, which includes sculptures depicting Christ and the 12 disciples.
And here is a shot of the main spire that I took following our visit.
The interior is dramatic in size and includes a great many features and works of art, many of which I failed to photograph. Here is part of what I did get, beginning with some of the structural elements.
I liked the following photo I took looking up one of the massive pillars to the groined ceiling.
One of the more unusual features was El Transparente, a ceiling area that features a skylight allowing natural light to illuminate what appears to be a glimpse of heaven. The opening is surrounded by sculptures. Quite dramatic.
And here is a very stylized madonna and child that I photographed for the similarity of features between mother and child and for the very adult-looking child.
Some of the ceiling designs clearly reflected a Mudejar (Muslim) influence, as in the following.
I'm not sure of the influence for the following, but it appears more secular than Christian.
We spent a fair amount of time in the sacristy because of the art located there. The sacristy ceiling was ornately painted, though I had difficulty capturing that artwork. Here first is a shot of the full ceiling, more or less, followed by a closeup of one of the details.
The sacristy is notable for two paintings of Christ, one by El Greco . . .
and the other by Goya.
