Tours of renaissance Andalusia

When Brunelleschi started building the admirable dome of Santa Maria dei Fiori in Florence in 1420, a paradigmatic work of the Renaissance, the Nasrid kings of Granada still controlled a considerable part of the Andalusian territory and lived in the sumptuous palace of La Alhambra.

The presence of Islam in Andalusia up to the end of the 15th Century, the influence of its buildings and the importance of its Mudéjar builders, delayed the arrival of classicism to our land and, in many cases gave it a particular imprint when it did arrive. On the other hand, the Gothic tradition lasted into the 16th Century and competed with "Roman" art, as may be seen in the large Andalusian cathedrals - Seville, Granada, Córdoba or Málaga.

In this artistic atmosphere, the classical models imported from Italy were not fullheartedly adopted until the arrival of Charles V, under whom the peninsula at last entered the modern world. The Emperor gave his support to the new architecture, and important noble families, civil and ecclesiastical chapters followed suit. Plateresque or Proto-Renaissance, Renaissance per se and Mannerism are the three steps to be considered. Granada, Seville, Córdoba, Ubeda and Baeza are the outstanding centres of classicist architecture. The artists Siloé, Machuca, Riaño, Ruiz and Vandelvira were its greatest exponents in Andalusia.
