Example of the Andalusian Renaissance.

The cathedral is home the Holy Veil, which according to tradition was used by Saint Veronica to wash Christ’s face.

The cathedral is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin and was built on the site of the old mosque in the time of Ferdinand III the Saint. However in the 15th century, the Gothic shrine was built to hold the Holy Veil or Sudarium, which became the object of pilgrimages to the site. The church was refurbished by Andrés de Vandelvira in the 16th century, when it assumed a marked Renaissance style. It has been declared a Historic-Artistic Monument. The Baroque façade is the work of Eufrasio López de Rojas. Inside, there are 17 chapels including the Mayor Chapel, which was decorated by Juan de Aranda in the 17th century.
