    CATHEDRAL OF SANTA MARIA, Part V
                      LEADING
 

Also of note is the sepulchre of Fernando de Robles and María Pérez Piñero located in the north nave. It was completed in 1559 and is known as “Alabaster altar” because of the material used and the scene it features under the arch. It was carved by Lucas Mitata. The architectonic organization represents the work of Pedro de Ibarra and the paintings are those of Juan de Borgoña the Younger.

Access to the cloister is marked by a simple door created during the first phase of construction. The ground-plan of the cloister is represents an almost perfect square, dividing each side into five bays – each one an arch –.

The cloister itself was constructed in two phases: the southern and western galleries were constructed in the 14th century while the northern and eastern galleries were constructed in the 16th century. These galleries, which reflect the older western one, feature pointed arches divided by two or three columns with both historical and vegetal design capitals. Many of the capitals were restored in 1911 by José Tarabella.

The two galleries of the 16th century were built between 1526 and 1539. In the eastern gallery, above the plateresque façade, are two medallions. One is Pedro de Güemes – the architect of this era – and the other is Villafañe Canon.
