The Triunfo de Santiago altarpiece, made 1707-8 by Francisco Hurtado Izquierdo, 1669-1725, in Granada Cathedral, or the Cathedral of the Incarnation, built 16th and 17th centuries in Renaissance style with Baroque elements, Granada, Andalusia, Southern Spain. The altarpiece includes the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception by Jose Risueno and an equestrian statue of St James by Alonso de Mena, 1587-1646. Several architects worked on the cathedral, which, unusually, has 5 naves and a circular capilla mayor instead of an apse. Granada was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
