Claustro bajo – Catedral de Santa Mar铆a de Burgos by neobit

Es una obra equilibrada y arm贸nica del g贸tico del 煤ltimo tercio del siglo XIII, proyectado y ejecutado por el maestro Enrique. Sus amplios y luminosos ventanales, la riqueza escult贸rica, tanto monumental como decorativa, con numerosas esculturas de santos, obispos, reyes, y paisajes b铆blicos en los pilares de los esquinales y las portadas de sus dependencias, crean un espacio ambiental 煤nico en consonancia con su funci贸n primordial: la religioso-cultual, y le constituye en uno de los claustro ojivales m谩s bellos de Espa帽a.

This is a balanced, harmonious work in the Gothic style of the last third of the 13th Century which was projected and executed by the master builder, Enrique. Its wide, bright windows, the richness of its sculpture-work both monumental and decorative, with a variety of sculptures of Saints, Bishops, Kings and biblical landscapes in the pillars of the cornerpieces and the gates to the rooms off it create a unique atmosphere which accords with its religious/cultural function making it one of the most beautiful ogival arch cloisters in Spain.

Sacrist铆a Mayor – Catedral de Santa Mar铆a de Burgos by neobit

Ocupan el espacio de una de las capillas de la girola; fue construida en 1765 con los proyectos de Fray Jos茅 de San Juan de la Cruz, en estilo barroco del per铆odo rococ贸. Llama la atenci贸n su c煤pula y cascarones con yeser铆as pintadas y, sobre todo, la gran cajoner铆a y retablos en los que trabajaron Jos茅 Cort茅s, Manuel Romero y en las pinturas de los frontales, sobre temas de la Virgen, Lucas Jord谩n y artistas de su taller.

The paintings on the front relate to the Virgin Mary and were painted by Lucas Jord谩n and artists from his workshop.

Capilla de los Condesables – Catedral de Santa Mar铆a de Burgos by neobit

La capilla de la Purificaci贸n, en el centro de la girola, mas conocida como capilla de los Condestables por haber sido erigida por el Condestable de Castilla y su esposa a fines del siglo XV. Es el recinto m谩s suntuoso de la catedral. Fue construida entre 1482 y 1496, por Sim贸n de Colonia. En su interior destaca el cuerpo de luces, el grupo de ventanales ochavado, con sus vidrieras flamencas y su b贸veda de doble estrella calada. Asombra su prodigiosa escultura p茅trea y la de sus tres retablos en los que trabajaron Gil de Siloe y Diego de la Cruz, en el retablo g贸tico y Diego de Siloe, Felipe de Vigarny y Le贸n Picardo, en los retablos renacentistas. Toda ella es una teofan铆a de los grandes misterios de la fe cristiana; verdadero deleite para los ojos del cuerpo y del esp铆ritu.

Crucero y cimborrio – Catedral de Santa Mar铆a de Burgos by neobit

[more for English]
Sobre la intersecci贸n de las naves mayor y transversal se levanta el cimborrio del crucero, de cincuenta metros de altura, con doble cuerpo de luces y asombrosa b贸veda de estrella calada, que permite el paso de la luz cenital. Lo construy贸 Juan de Vallejo entre 1540 y 1568 posiblemente inspirado en el anterior que construyeron Juan y Sim贸n de Colonia, terminado hacia 1495 y que se derrumb贸 en 1539. Aunque fue construido en pleno renacimiento contiene concesiones y recuerdos del g贸tico tard铆o, h谩bilmente armonizados con el perfil g贸tico de la Catedral. Es todo 茅l un prodigio de escultura, tanto en estatuas exentas como en relieve; m谩s de cien estatuas se distribuyen en todo su 谩mbito exterior e interior. De 茅l dec铆a Felipe II, absorto en su contemplaci贸n , “que m谩s parec铆a obra de 谩ngeles que de hombres”.

The dome of the crossing which is about fifty metres high rises up above the intersection of the Great Nave and the Transversal Nave. It has a double body of lights and an amazing pierced stellar vault, which permits the entry of light from above. It was built by Juan de Vallejo between 1540 and 1568 may well have been inspired by an earlier dome built by Juan and Sim贸n de Colonia, which was finished around 1495 and collapsed in 1539. Although it was built in the midst of the Renaissance period, it still makes some concessions to Late Gothic and skilfully blends in with the Gothic profile of the Cathedral. The sculpture-work is awesome, both in terms of free-standing statues and in relief carving; over 100 statues can be seen inside and outside the Cathedral. King Philip II said while rapt in admiration of the building 鈥渢hat it seemed more the work of angels than of men鈥.

Escalera Dorada – Catedral de Santa Mar铆a de Burgos by neobit

Adosada a la pared del hastial norte de la nave del transepto, se levant贸 entre 1519 y 1522, una escalera para salvar el desnivel existente entre la puerta de Coroner铆a y la nave norte del transepto. Es del tipo de las llamadas imperiales. La obra fue dise帽ada y realizada por el gran arquitecto Diego de Siloe, que se inspira en el proyecto que hiciera Bramante para el 鈥淐ortile del Belvedere鈥 en Roma. El rejero franc茅s Hilario realiz贸 los antepechos en hierro repujado y dorado con minucioso trabajo de medallones.

Capilla de la Concepci贸n o Santa Ana – Catedral de Santa Mar铆a de Burgos by neobit

This Chapel occupies the site of two earlier chapels and a small courtyard; it was built between 1477 and 1488, by the architects Juan and Sim贸n de Colonia, and was paid for by Bishop Luis de Acu帽a y Osorio. In the wall of the apse there is a lavish altarpiece in the Flemish Gothic style dedicated to St Joaquin and St Anne. This is the work of Gil de Siloe, who put the finishing touches to the main section in 1492; it depicts the Tree of Jesse around the embrace of Joaquin and Anne, the parents of the Virgin Mary. The lateral sections shelter under fine porches, with numerous statues of saints and prophets, Marian scenes, hagiographies and an image of the founder bishop.
