Cathedral of Murcia (ES – Spain)

Despite an existing pact with the Muslims of the city that prevented the destruction of any mosque, the cathedral, previously a Mosque for the Arabic invasion of the Iberian peninsula, was consecrated to the Virgin Mary by Jaime I.

In the 14th century, starting in 1385 and reaching completion in 1467, its conversion into a cathedral began. Due to its constant modifications until the 1700s, the cathedral building is made up of many different architectural styles, with a Gothic interior and Baroque exterior.
