La Catedral de Granada was built in the early 16th century to rival Moorish achievements in the city and to re-impose Christianity after eight centuries of Moslem rule. This grand Renaissance Gothic cathedral is richly decorated and deliberately designed to resemble a triumphal arch, commemorating the triumph of the Catholics over the Moors. Not surprisingly, it was built on the site of a Moorish mosque, Mezquita Aljama.
