Comments

The "Santa Iglesia Catedral Basilica Metropolitana de Santa María" is a cathedral temple of Catholic worship dedicated to the Virgin Mary, in the Spanish city of Burgos. Its construction began in 1222, following French Gothic patterns. It had very important modifications in the 15th and 16th centuries: the spiers of the main façade, the Constable's chapel and the transept dome, elements of Flamboyant Gothic that give the temple its unmistakable profile. The last important works (the sacristy or the chapel of Santa Tecla) already belong to the 18th century, a century in which the Gothic façades on the main façade were also modified. The subsequent construction and remodeling were done with limestone extracted from quarries in the nearby town of Hontoria de la Cantera.
