"Architect. He put into practice the treatises of the period thanks to the patrons who supported his work, mainly in the province of Jaén."

Born in Alcaraz (Albacete) in 1509, he continued the art of Diego de Siloé in Andalusia. His first work dates to 1530 at the Monastery of Uclés (Cuenca). In 1536 he produced one of his most important works, the church of El Salvador in Úbeda, commissioned by Francisco de los Cobos. He designed the entire funeral chapel of San Francisco de Baeza but only the sanctuary was built. From 1548 until his death he oversaw the construction of Jaén Cathedral. From 1549 on he collaborated on the construction of Malaga Cathedral. His last work was Santiago Hospital (Úbeda), built between 1562 and 1575, which inside is early Spanish Baroque. He died in Jaén in 1575.
