Virgin and child, from the Baroque altarpiece, 18th century, in the Capilla de Nuestra Senora La Antigua, in Granada Cathedral, or the Cathedral of the Incarnation, built 16th and 17th centuries in Renaissance style with Baroque elements, Granada, Andalusia, Southern Spain. In the centre of the altarpiece is a statue of the Virgin and child under a canopy, and to either side, San Cecilio and San Gregorio Betico. 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.
