A cathedral dedicated to the Incarnation
The Cathedral of Guadix was under construction for a long period of time spanning from the 16th century through the late 18th century.
The first building was a Visigoth temple upon which the Al-hama Mosque was built. Three building stages can be discerned: one Gothic, during which construction work on the current cathedral by Pedro Morales and Enrique Egás began, which lasted until 1547. A Renaissance stage, during which Diego de Siloé worked to expand the building; and a third, Baroque stage, which began in the early 18th century with Vicente Acero, Thomas, Gaspar Cayón de la Vega, Pachote, Ruíz del Peral, master Moreno, and others, during the course of which the façades, the roof, the high altar, the choir and the pulpits were built.
