Overview

The sense of space, harmony and light created by the enormous height of the naves is what makes the interior so special. There are three naves and 14 chapels in total. The most impressive chapels are the Capilla Dorada (golden chapel), Todos los Santos (All Saints) and Nuestra Señora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Suffering), with its statue by Mariano Benlliure and altarpiece by Churriguera. Gil de Hontañón, J. de Alava, the Churriguera brothers and Sagarvinaga were some of the important architects involved in the construction of this building between 1513 and 1733.
