previous mosque structure. The result is the present building which was designed in a Renaissance esthetic. Three naves instead of two, side chapels, stained glass windows, and an elaborate façade. It was associated with the Royal Chapel previously described. The original architect given the job wanted a gothic appearance for the Cathedral but when he was removed from the position, the new architect preferred Renaissance designs; therefore the cathedral still has hints of Gothic influence but is mostly of Renaissance flavor.
