Soaring marble columns pay testament to Spain's kings and queens of old–a time when victory piled on victory sent the Moors fleeing the country. The chapel was constructed in 1492, a time when Spanish Renaissance designs were supplanting the Gothic styles of old—and the result is spectacular. The design of the cathedral was split between Enrique Egas, who laid the foundations, and architect Diego de Siloé, who built five naves (instead of the usual three) and the semicircular apse to the chapel.
