Erected in 1401 on a long-time site of worship, the Cathedral is one of Europe's most impressive buildings. When the canons demanded a new church "such and so well that it should have no equal, " construction was started in a style that is an architectural collage: primarily Gothic with elements of Visigothic and Almohade (Moorish) art.

The text traces the Cathedral's history from a 12th century mosque to its blessings in 1507. In addition, a "tour" of this magnificent structure is conducted with emphasis on its unusual architectural features.
