The influence of Islam in Teruel.

The apse, roof and dome belong to the Mudejar architecture of Aragon, which has been declared UNESCO World Heritage.

The cathedral was built on Santa María de Mediavilla Church. The old Romanesque church built in 1171 was enlarged to hold three brick and masonry naves. The Moor, Juzaff, was in charge of the work that replaced the Romanesque apses with Gothic-Mudejar ones, of which only the main chapel remains. The Mudejar tower dates from the 13th-century and has a lower passageway covered by pointed barrel vaulting, which opens onto the street. It is square and has three floors heavily decorated with tiles. The coffering on the A-frame roof of the central nave is the most representative of the period, thanks to its structure and decoration. It is 32 metres long and dates from the 14th century. The dome in the central nave was built in the 16th century.
