The Metropolitan Cathedral (IV)

Chur·ri·gue·resque (choore-ge-raesk) adj.
Of or relating to a style of baroque architecture of Spain and its Latin-American colonies, characterized by elaborate and extravagant decoration.
[Spanish churrigueresco, after José Benito Churriguera (1665-1725), Spanish architect.]
Churrigueresco is a term that describes the last phase of the Spanish renaissance. It occurred between the years 1650 and 1780 and was named after Jose Churriguera because he, along with other members of his family, were key players in the style.
Churrigueresco was a reaction against the severity of Philip II's Desornamentado style through the use of extreme ornamentation.
Churrigueresco was the most dramatic and colossal in terms of surface ornamentation.
Churrigueresco opposed that of the Desornamentado style by displaying many intricate details.
Even though this style focused mainly on exteriors, it still showed richness and extravagance. The embellished details of this period were completed by the use of stucco, which was the primary material that architects used.

El estilo churrigueresco es mas dramático y colosal en términos de ornamentación, principalmente en los retablos y las fachadas de los templos de la época.
Los materiales usados principalmente fueron el estuco, y la cantera.

The metropolitan cathedral

The metropolitan cathedral
Mexico Daily Photo

The cathedral and its vestry represent a synthesis of art forms in New Spain. Penetrating its imposing sun-bathed baroque and neoclassical facade, the visitor enters the ethereal half-light of this hallowed shrine, with its five separate naves, its side chapels, and its sacred religious icons. The religious ceremonies are performed with the full dignity of the Catholic faith and, with a little luck, it may be possible to hear the strains of one of the cathedral's monumental organs.
