Sacristía Mayor – Catedral de Santa María de Burgos by neobit

Ocupan el espacio de una de las capillas de la girola; fue construida en 1765 con los proyectos de Fray José de San Juan de la Cruz, en estilo barroco del período rococó. Llama la atención su cúpula y cascarones con yeserías pintadas y, sobre todo, la gran cajonería y retablos en los que trabajaron José Cortés, Manuel Romero y en las pinturas de los frontales, sobre temas de la Virgen, Lucas Jordán y artistas de su taller.

This was built on the site of one of the chapels of the ambulatory; it was built in 1765 using projects drawn up by Fray José de San Juan de la Cruz, in the baroque style of the rococo period. Particularly noteworthy are the dome and the cascarones (vaults in quarter spheres) with painted plasterwork and above all the grand chest of drawers and altarpieces which were the work of José Cortés and Manuel Romero. The paintings on the front relate to the Virgin Mary and were painted by Lucas Jordán and artists from his workshop.
