Comments: The history of this temple reflects the unlucky monumental history of this city: destructions, spoils and abandons. Till mid XIII century it had a provisional front; Fernando III made build part of the main front and two twin towers in gothic style that were destroyed together with another two towers (it got to have four) by the fire because of thunderbolts. In 1720 a new main front was build but it had to be unmounted because of several collapses and it was rebuild in 1723. In 1902 the tower of Giraldo and large part of the temple collapsed and the main front had to be build again in 1910, resulting in the present one.
